Transient MKII Asynchronous USB Converter

A versatile asynchronous 24 bit/192k USB converter featuring an XMOS based circuit, low-jitter clocks, multiple digital outputs, Wolfson DAC and high-resolution volume control.


Transient MKII Asynchronous USB Converter Transient MKII Asynchronous USB Converter rear Audio Circuit The heart of the system is our XMOS based circuit utilizing extremely low-jitter clocks. Multiple digital outputs are available via isolated 75 ohm BNC (with included 75 ohm RCA adapter) and two individually buffered I2S outputs.

High Quality DAC In addition to the digital outputs, Transient also provides Digital to Analog conversion. The conversion is done by a Wolfson circuit with a built-in high resolution volume control and 2V RMS output. A microprocessor circuit allows configuration for fixed (line level) output, or variable volume control, and also indicates the sampling frequency of the incoming signal.

Chassis and Build Highest quality parts are used throughout: Nichicon Muse & 2% tolerance polypropylene power supply capacitors, Takman resistors and WIMA polypropylene capacitors for signal circuits, and Canare BNC connector. The shielded anti-resonant chassis is 1/8 thick T6061 aluminum with 3/16” thick front panel, and all hardware is non-magnetic stainless steel.

Runs off the grid The Transient is powered by the USB cable so you can plug into your computer audio and take it on the go. Our VDC-5 MKII Upgrade Power Supply can be connected to the DC Input port for improved performance.

The Abso!ute Sound reviews the Transient MKII/VDC•5 MKII Combo "To say I was impressed by the Transient II’s combination of modest price and excellent sonics is something of an understatement. "Channel Islands Transient MKII & VDC-5 MKII reviewed in The Absolute Sound (Dec issue #228)

December 2013 Tone Audio- Transient MKII USB Converter/DAC "The CIAudio draws you into the music, in the best possible way, in the similar manner that really good analog does."
