Technical specifications:

2 channel IN / 2 channel OUT USB soundcard (16 bit, up to 48 kHz sample rate (*)), compatible with all Windows versions (no driver required), Linux and Macintosh.
High accuracy A/D and D/A converters from Burr-Brown:
DAC: THD+N 0.005%, SNR 96 dB, Pass-Band Ripple +/- 0.1 dB
ADC: THD+N 0.01%, SNR 89 dB, Pass-Band Ripple +/- 0.05 dB

(*)
The soundcard can operate also at a sample frequency of 96 kHz, but the audio bandwidth is limited to 22 kHz.

No external power supply required. Powered from USB port.

Very robust anodized aluminum enclosure.
Compact size: 103 x 53 x 120 mm

2 x 10 Led VU-Meter bar graphs, for accurate input level adjustment.

Can be used as Preamplifier for Microphone and line level.
Input and output stages realized using excellent Burr-Brown operational amplifiers
THD+N 0.0006%, very low noise 5nV/sqrt(Hz), Rail to Rail I/O

4 x inputs, RCA connectors, mixable with stereo input JACK connector. Input 1 and 3 are downmixed to USB input Left. Input 2 and 4 are downmixed to USB input Right. Suitable for Live recording, using 2 or 4 microphones, and for acoustics measurements.
