Newbie question about I2S

Recommended Posts



I have a newbie question about the I2S protocol/connection. I was reading about the new PS-Audio NuWave DSD DAC that now supports DSD128. I noticed at the back of the NuWave box there is an I2S input (looks like HDMI). But the NuWave DAC already has a USB input (which made me wonder about why I2S).


Does the I2S connection deliver DSD or PCM (or both)? Is it primarily for SACD Transports?


BTW. Has anyone tried this new NuWave DSD DAC?
