Those esteemed customers having experience of using the tX-USB and tX-USBexp products of USB host cards would have known the fact as to how much the quality of USB port affects the audio sound.
The tX-USBhub, used as connected to those devices, such as the Note PC, Mac mini and NUC board, provided with no PCI or PCI express slot, may substitute the functions of tX-USB or tX-USBexp products.
The functions of tX-USBhub would be simply defined as USB 2.0 hub, but can be described further in detail as an “Audio USB 2.0 Hub” designed and developed solely to achieve high quality for USB audio devices employing the technologies used in the products of tX-USB and tX-USBexp, which provides the excellent sound quality unequaled and incomparable to other conventional USB hubs.
– Ultra Low Noise Regulator : Extremely low noise power supply circuit, as designed considering the noises generated from the power supply circuit itself.
– Ultra Low Jitter Clock : Super-precision clock circuit improving the sound quality by reducing the jitter of audible band most sensitive to human.
– Active Noise Canceller : Make the clock frequency vibration caused by the voltage variations and noise stable, so it produces the best sound quality.
– 2nd stage power regulator for highest sound quality
– USB port power on/off switch for highest sound quality
– USB port signal noise filter for highest sound quality
– High performance capacitor for improvement sound quality
– USB port power over current & thermal protection for safety operation
Applicable to operate connecting the USB audio devices and external storage devices simultaneously through two USB ports built in the product, allowing selection of products fitting to the operating condition out of embedded type tX-USBhubIN for installation inside of PC enclosure and external type tX-USBhubEX for standalone operation.
Also, outstanding sound quality improvement effect can be experienced using the premium quality battery based power supply available with separate purchase.
Do try and in person experience the high quality sound system produced from the new platform beyond and above the existing PC product criteria.
