The USBPhonoPlus v2 is the ideal low cost interface solution for transferring any analog or digital audio source, including a turntable into a computer via standard USB connection.

Optical TOSLINK inputs and outputs as well as S/PDIF inputs allow the USBPhonoPlus v2 to act as a convenient digital audio to USB interface as well standard line level analog audio / USB conversion tool. Designed to work with the USB audio device drivers in PC Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista, Mac OS9.1 or greater (with native USB support) or any OS-X based system, the USBPhonoPlus v2 requires no additional drivers. Housed in an all aluminum black anodized case, the USBPhonoPlus v2 can be powered by either an external power supply or directly from a PC based USB host port for added convenience.
