Play back audio files on your Firewire-equipped computer with the full quality of your DAC. The INT202 and INT203 both serve as bridges from your computer to your DAC. In addition, the bidirectional INT203 can serve as an input to the computer, for example to connect an A/D converter and use it for digitizing vinyl records.
The INT202 is unidirectional stereo Firewire to AES/EBU interface with infrared remote control for volume and absolute polarity. It supports dual wire data transfer in 176.4/192 kHz mode for older D/A Converters. The bit transparency of the player software on the computer can be checked with the INT202.
The sampling frequency is generated with an internal generator in the INT202/INT203. This ensures a low-jitter transfer between the computer and D/A converter. In addition, the INT203 can be switched to external synchronization via its XLR or RCA AES/EBU inputs. Both units work at all standard sampling frequencies between 44.1 and 192 kHz.
Both devices support bit transparency checking. In addition, there is a digital level control with a proper dithering algorithm applied.
