miniStreamer is a flexible USB to SPDIF-I2S audio interface fitting a wide range of audio DIY/OEM applications. This USB dongle will act as a sound card in your PC/Mac environment and allow you to easily the following actions:

- Audio Playback (output): Audio files stored on your PC are played back through the miniStreamer interface. The output format is both SPDIF (RCA coaxial) and I2S (Digital audio IC to IC format).

- Audio Recording (input): External digital audio source (SPDIF or I2S format) can also be recorded on your PC using a standard recording software (e.g. Goldwave or any software having the ability to record.

NOTE: We've noticed that the miniSTREAMER doesn't enumerate correctly since the USB audio driver changes made by Apple on OSx 10.13. Unfortunately there isn't any workaround for this basic chipset. If your application is for Mac OSx, we recommend the USBStreamer instead.

Perfect to bring the I2S output from 24 bit ADC to computer. Also my Galaxy Note 3 can use the MiniStreamer to capture sound.
