USB to SPDIF Converters?

msgmsg Posts: 4,270
I saw a couple of threads a while back about USB to SPDIF converters, and the Peachtree X1 and Musical Fidelity V-LINK seemed to be good overall options for quality/cost. I have a couple of old DACs that don't offer USB that I'd like to check out with computer audio.

I think iFi makes one as well, the iLink.

Anyone else using one of these converters other than the aforementioned, and getting good results?

    Thanks, man. Yeah, that M2TECH HiFace stuff keeps popping up in my reading, mostly just casual at this point. Probably need to dive into the research a little deeper.

    Seems an overlooked/obsolete segment these days as a lot of people have moved on to more advanced DACs that already have a USB option.

    There are lots of cheap options out there, but I get the sense that going that route will probably destroy the benefits I think USB's offering.

    Topping D10 is 20% off for Prime Day and it does USB in -> Coax/Optical out.
