It has already been 12 years since SOtM released the world’s first High End audio grade USB host card, tX-USB. During this long period of time, SOtM has released several products, including the USB hub type products as the tX-USBhub and tX-USBultra, and the tX-USBexp which is the upgraded in the PCI type of tX-USB to PCI express type, which are all recognized as still the best in the industry.

 And finally, these tX-USB series products, which have been a long run for about 12 years, were upgraded to the tX-USBx10G.

The tX-USBx10G, as you may already get a hint from the model name, it supports USB 3.1 Gen 2×1 specification, supporting USB SuperSpeed of up to 10Gbps.

 Over the past 12 years, the USB specification has continued to develop, supporting speeds of up to 20Gbps. However, to support this speed, a USB type C cable must be used which means that it can’t be directly used for most USB audio devices that require only using the Type A to Type B cable.

 As a result, the tX-USBx10G applies the USB 3.1 Gen 2×1 specification that can support the fastest speed among the specifications that can be directly connected to the Type A to Type B cable used for High End USB audio devices without the need for a separate conversion gender.

 The most noticeable improvement in sound aspect of the tX-USBx10G is that it expresses singer’s voice and textures of instruments without distortion very clearly, as if they were present at the scene. In addition, even emotions of performers who exchange music each other and where the microphone was installed and recorded can be easily revealed well.

 However, it can be said that the biggest improvement of using tX-USBx10G is not only the improvement of detailed expressions, but also the ability to feel the taste of beautiful music alive.

 This improvement in the sound aspect can be said to be such a significant advancement that can be divided into the era of USB audio as well as PC audio before and after the release of the tX-USBx10G. If previous tX-USB series products can be described as perfect for improving sound quality for USB audio, the tX-USBx10G, which is a remarkable step forward in technology and sound quality, is at the stage of sound perfection.

 Simply saying, the tX-USBx10G is so special enough that it’s meaningless to look for an alternative to it, so it is time to forget about the old dated digital audio.

 The tX-USBx10G will give you a very special experience how you can feel the ‘Soul of The Music’ in your audio system.
