Seattle Hi-Fi is pleased to introduce Berkeley Audio Design to it’s brand collection. The Alpha DAC has received numerous awards worldwide including the coveted Product of the Year Award from the Absolute Sound. We beleive that Berkeley’s newest product, the Alpha USB, is a breakthrough product which overcomes all limitations of the USB interface.
The Alpha USB is an asynchronous High Speed USB to digital audio interface that extracts the highest possible audio quality from computer audio sources. It features a High Speed USB 2.0 input data connection and switch selected audio output signal type – either coaxial SPDIF using a BNC connector or balanced AES using an XLR connector. Sampling rates up to 192 kHz and word lengths up to 24 bit are supported.
The Alpha USB is designed to work with both Apple Macintosh and Windows PC computers. Apple Macintosh computers using Snow Leopard or later operating systems have a High Speed USB Audio Driver that interfaces directly with the Alpha USB. It is not necessary to install a special driver. Microsoft Windows PC’s require the included Alpha USB Windows driver which works with Windows XP, Vista and 7.
