ARX Systems has announced the addition of the new and unique USB I/O Universal Transformer Isolated USB Interface to its range of precision audio tools.
The USB I/O is a true “plug and play” analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog pro audio interface and requires no special driver program installation on Mac OSX, Win XP and Vista.
It features transformer isolated audio inputs and outputs, with new USB analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converter chipsets that are incorporated into the circuit topology, allowing maximum headroom and ensuring low input and output noise and distortion.
The transformer balanced inputs and outputs and ground lift switch eliminate the earth loops/ground hum and other extraneous interaction, interference and distortions common to computer audio systems with their inherently noisy electrical environment and problematic power supplies and grounding.
The USB I/O is powered directly from the USB bus, so it requires no external power supply or bulky “wall wart” to use.
ARX Managing Director Colin Park comments: “ARX’s USB DI products have been extraordinarily popular since their release and have been adopted by the Pro Audio industry worldwide as industry standard USB to Analog audio interfaces.
“The USB DIs feature the Transformer isolation and heavy duty steel construction that audio professionals require in demanding applications out in the field where ‘little plastic boxes’ with unbalanced in’s and out’s just don’t cut it”.
