Those customers who have experience using the tX-USB and tX-USBexp, which are USB host cards, would have known the fact as to how much the quality of a USB port affects the audio sound.
The tX-USBhub, when connected to devices, such as the Note PC, Mac mini, or NUC board, provided with no PCI or PCI express slot, may substitute for the functions of the tX-USB or tX-USBexp products.
The functions of tX-USBhub could be simply described as a USB 2.0 hub, but they 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 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, 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 in the audible band most sensitive to people.
– Active Noise Canceller : Stabilizes the clock frequency vibration caused by the voltage variations and noise, 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 improved sound quality.
– USB port power over current & thermal protection for safe operation.
It is possible to connect USB audio devices and external storage devices simultaneously through the two USB ports built in the product, and allow selection of products fitting to the operating condition out of the embedded type tX-USBhubIN for installation inside of PC enclosure or the external tX-USBhubEX for standalone operation.
Also, if the tX-USBhub is used together with a premium quality power supply like sPS-500 and a USB cable like dCBL-UF, you get the better sound quality from your USB audio system.
Do try and experience the high quality sound system produced by the new idea and technology with tX-USBhub beyond the existing PC product criteria.
