asynchronous USB digital input

Whether playback from CD or other formats manages via the PC, you decide by pressing a button on only one device - of course, with R2R analog converters TDA1540 or TDA1541.

The retrofittable USB input consists of a decoder module and a switching module, which changes the input source between CD and digital input on the analog board in the CD player. The 14-bit module has an additional board docked to provide the 14-bit simultaneous data mode.

USB input TDA1540

The USB input receives the data secured in asynchronous transmission, which means better quality compared to a simple adaptive data transmission. An asynchronous transfer driver to be installed is included, but Apple does not need it. For both sources, USB and CD, the connection to the analog converter is then done in non oversampling.

Streaming for 14 bit TDA1540

The 14-bit switching module is used on the analog board instead of the SAA7030 chip. On the switching module is a connection for a switch to change the playback between CD or USB and also a control input, which allows source selection via the remote control module.

Streaming for 16 bit TDA1541

The 16-bit switching module is used on the analog board instead of the SAA7220 chip and is suitable for both the TDA1541 and TDA1541A. On the switching module is a connection for a switch to change the playback between CD or USB and also a control input, which allows source selection via the remote control module.

Hardware Installation 14 Bit

1. Desolder SAA7030 Digital filter in CD player
2. Isolate SAA7000 pin 16 and over 1k resistor to pin18
3. Solder switch module for source selection instead of SAA7030
4. Attach USB-in module and USB socket

source switch USB-IN

Software Installation 14 Bit

Driver-cm-14 (for XP, Win7, Win8)
Apple does not need a driver.

After the driver is installed, the CD player can be connected with a USB cable. The CD player is displayed in the Windows Device Manager as C-Media USB Device.

Also try foobar 2000 as a media program. In some cases the quality can be increased in the foobar2000 by means of Asio output plug-in. If helpful, configure the output for Asio in foobar: Foobar > File > Perferences > Playback > Output > Device (ASIO: for C-Media USB Device).

Hardware Installation 16 Bit

1. Desolder SAA7220 Digital filter in CD player
2. Cable bridge Pin 9 > 10
3. Cable bridge Pin 11 > SAA7210 Pin 18 (SAA7310-QFP Pin 25)
4. Solder switch module for source selection instead of SAA7220
5. Attach USB-in module and USB socket

Driver-xmos-16 (for Win 7, 8, 10)
Apple does not need a driver.

After the driver is installed, the CD player can be connected with a USB cable. The CD player is displayed in the Windows Device Manager as XMOS USB Audio Device.

Also try foobar 2000 as a media program. In some cases the quality can be increased in the foobar2000 by means of Asio output plug-in. If helpful, configure the output for Asio in foobar: Foobar > File > Perferences > Playback > Output > Device (ASIO: for XMOS USB Audio).
