Product Details

Topping C1 24-bit 96 kHz USB to S/PDIF Converter

Topping's signature high-quality shines through in the compact, attractive C1 converter. Using the included USB cable (which also provides power), the C1 extracts a digital audio signal from a PC. Then, the digital SPDIF signal can be run via optical or coaxial cable from the C1 into a digital to analog converter or home theater receiver for truly top-notch sound!

Installation is plug-and-play, requiring no software installation. LED indicators on the C1 show when the unit is receiving a signal and what sampling rate is being detected. Supports 16 ~ 32 bit, 32 ~ 96 kHz output. Dimensions: 13.5 mm H x 58 mm W x 83 mm D.

Will this converter accept input from an HP 11 Chromebook?'

Asked by: john nyc
The USB audio codec should be universal, and not specific to a certain platform. I have not heard of any issues with chrome at all yet.

88 kHz files? Which DAC chip? Mac/Linux compatible?

Wondering which DAC chip is running the show. Also, will this handle 88 kHz files? Finally, is it plug and play with Macs and Linux, or only Windows?
Asked by: garyrp
Yes this is 88kHz compatible. The chip that is used is a Pulse PE-65612NL and it is Mac/Lunix compatible.

Tablet People!

Say I bought a usb coupler and I used this to plug in to a usb out on my nexus 7.. Would the usb out on a tablet send that signal? Or will this only work for a computer?
Asked by: Vic M.
I probably should not be answering this but I'll take a shot and maybe give you some food for thought.1) Are you sure the Nexus 7 can send a signal out on the USB port. Is this not for charging only?2) Are not the music files stored on your Nexus 7 of of low bit rate, size and quality like 128KB ACC? The Nexus 7 has pretty low storage capacity and no external storage. I am not sure sure what this product would really do for you taking a low sound quality file through it. Garbage in, garbage out as they say.3) If you want to get music out from your Nexus 7 to a home receiver, I would think the output from the Nexus 7 headphone jack to the receriver via a 3.5mm male to RCA male would be about the same with a lower quality file.I have a ASUS tranformer TF101 with mainly 128kb ACC files or 720p videos and do just this for party or background listening. For serious listening I use the orginal CD or a lossless file.
