Descriptions:  
U18 is the new generation of high-performance USB audio interface designed by Gustard.
XU216 from XMOS has 16 cores, which brings rich resources and a smooth experience.

Fully isolation

  • Complete grounding isolation is achieved by 200 Mbps isolator to eliminate all interference from your PC  
  • Isolation Bridge between USB interface with other Application, for best sound optimisation 


2nd generation clock Synthesizer with ultra-Low noise.

  • Support external OCXO Master Clock.
  • K2 can generate the audio-specific frequency using a 10Mhz clock source with extremely low loss.


Independent CPLO for signal shaping

  • In the CPLD for signal processing, the isolated IIS signal is reshaped to remove the jitter introduced by the isolator


Selected crystal for Hi-end audio, AS338

  • Two AS338 Hi-End audio oscillators from Accusilicon.
  • In order to meet the strict requirements, each crystal is packaged with nitrogen gas, and 100% checked by a phase noise analyzer.
  • Its phase noise and short-term stability are far ahead of similar products.
  • The jitter is as low as 38fs, which greatly improves the bass quality, and brings a more natural sound. 
  • The power supply of clock is based on LT3045-a high-performance low dropout linear regulator, whose RMS Noise is only 0.8uVRMS (10Hz to 100kHz).
