Build a Digital Audio SPDIF Output for Your Computer, Laptop, Tablet or Phone
Even though today's computers, tablets and smartphones are capable of producing ultra high-quality digital audio, it's left to cheap digital-to-analog converters (DACs) to transform it into sound. Those who listen all day to a low-bitrate MP3 stream on a cheap plastic mono bass-boosted Bluetooth loudspeaker probably don't care, but there are people who are willing to invest time and money in quality audio. A good step in this direction is this USB-to-SPDIF interface that allows our digital sources to connect to high-end AV receivers, stereo amplifiers or stand-alone audio DACs. It even features IR remote control.
