The miniDSP UDIO-8 is a pocket size USB Asynchronous interface with support for up to 8 channels of audio recording and 8 channels of playback. Inputs and outputs are digital and available in 2 versions (AES/EBU or SPDIF). A standard TASCAM pinout DB-25 connector to XLR (AES-EBU version) or DB25 to BNC (SPDIF version) is used for connectivity. 

Thanks to 8 channels of high quality sample rate converters on all inputs, the UDIO-8 supports recording of any input rate (44.1~192k). On the output side, the digital output matches the playback sample rate selected in the driver.The UDIO-8 is an ideal solution for high-resolution multi-channel audio, computer-based (HTPC) home theater, live sound, surround-sound mixing and mastering.

NOTE: To insure correct impedance matching, note that UDIO comes in two versions. (AES-EBU or SPDIF) with different internal PCB assemblies. Please make sure to select the correct format you'd like to use.
