Musical Fidelity V-Link MkII: Seamless, Asynchronous USB-to-S/PDIF Conversion

The new Musical Fidelity V-Link II has been redesigned from the ground-up to deliver absolutely perfect digital bit streams with absolutely no jitter. Musical Fidelity’s proprietary asynchronous digital software converts USB into the purest digital stream of zeros and ones. The V-Link II outputs either S/PDIF (Coaxial RCA) or Toslink (optical), makes the most of any computer audio files, and does so at an astonishingly low price. Take your CPU's guesswork out of your digital system and hear what you've been missing!

"Whether streaming music from my hard-disk storage over the home network, or with high-quality internet streamed services, the V-Link/netbook combination sounded magical – and I don’t use the term lightly, such was my surprise at just what could be achieved for so little."
– Martin Cullingford, Gramophone

More people are storing their cherished music collections on computer. This exciting consumer led revolution gives new and exciting possibilities for audiophiles. However, the standard USB output from laptops has been a serious limitation on ultimate quality. Standard computer USB outputs are synchronous. This means that the computer will determine its output data rate at its whim. From an audiophile’s perspective this is a disaster. The data rate might be 14 BIT 32 kHz or it might be at a higher data rate. It just depends on what the computer decides to do. The solution to this problem is an asynchronous connection. Simply put, the receiving device instructs the computer to give it data (via its USB output) at whatever rate it has been stored on the computer disc. This is a big change. Now an audiophile can be confident that the data received from his computer is genuinely high quality and unfailingly consistent.

The V-Link II has been designed from the ground up to offer perfect and consistent performance. It will work with a huge range of computers and operating systems. Extreme attention has been paid to all the detailed programming to ensure rock solid consistency. The low jitter power supply feeds an ultra high precision clock which is positioned almost on top of the V-Link II's vital components. This achieves extremely short tracks and ultra-accurate clocking.
