Model Description:
Digital to Analog Converter of S/PDIF digital audio signal into a super high fidelity analog

Model Details

The Flying Calf D/A, a professional-quality external Digital-to-Analog converter box, is an extremely cost-effective and compact way to convert any S/PDIF digital audio signal into a super high fidelity stereo analog audio signal. Whether connected to an S/PDIF-capable sound card, DVD, DAT, or other audio device, the Flying Calf 24-bit delta-sigma D/A delivers crystal clear audio from its tiny 5.2" x 3.2" x 1.2" chassis.

The Flying Calf D/A sports an RCA-type S/PDIF digital input connector and dual ¼ unbalanced audio output jacks. The Calf's D/A circuitry automatically locks to the sample rate of the incoming S/PDIF digital bit stream, so all D/A sample rates under 50 kHz are supported.


No more Noise!! D/A and A/D converters don't belong inside the world's noisiest environment - your computer! They belong on your desktop or in your rack! If you're using a two channel digital I/O card in your computer, the Flying Cow delivers cutting edge technology and crystal clear audio from 24-bit, delta sigma converters with 128x oversampling. The superior sonic performance will convince you to use the Flying Cow for everything from computer based digital audio to adding unparalleled clarity to your DAT recordings.
