Of course! For every single product out there there is a China equivalent at half the price (or less) LOL!!

Well maybe half of the servers in the market are using casings made in china LoL!

USB signal reclock to an extremely precise USB signal & input into an unknown quality USB input in a DAC 😆. Wouldnt it make better sense to use an excellent quality usb card like those fr Jcat ( retailing euro 800) or the 1 from pink faun ?

Anyway, any product is relevant to someone & I m sure Innous Phoenix will be an excellent upgrade to some of us

Guys, I can only do so much in one review. In my "real-life" profession, there is a phrase — don't boil the ocean! I chose to focus this review on 2 things:

  • the USB - USB path
  • users who don't build their USB sources.

Products like the Gaia mentioned above, or the well-established MUTEC MC-3+ and Singxer SU-1, are digital-to-digital converters (DDCs) in that they actually convert from one digital input format to another. The whole decision of "which input type is best" is a deep, deep rabbit hole that is completely OT for this discussion. I focused on USB sources and USB inputs. That is what the PhoenixUSB is designed for.

 

As regards PCIe cards like the JCAT USB XE, or previous stalwarts like the SOtM tX-USBexp, these belong to a subset of sources that people custom-build for themselves. Standalone units, like the PhoenixUSB, the tX-USBultra, and the ISO-Regen, are applicable to all sources.

 

Understood. I do enjoy your meticulous review. Thanks
