Simple Design To Offer DSD-Ready USB to S/PDIF Converter

The DSD bus keeps rolling along this time with a new asynchronous USB to S/PDIF converter from Simple Design makers of the Sonore line of music servers and DACs. From the Sonore website:
The Signature Series Sonore DSD Converter is an asynchronous USB converter with SPDIF BCN output. The converter can output regular PCM up to 192 sample rate and convert DSD2PCM at 88.2 or 176.4 sample rate. The DSD2PCM conversion is done on board to eliminate computer CPU load and is compliant with the DSD over PCM (DoP) v1 specification. The DSD2PCM conversion incorporates proprietary filters. The converter does not use USB power and is instead powered by a low noise linear power supply. HDMI I2S output compatible with the PS Audio specification is available as an optional upgrade.
It's nice to see such rapid progress and implementation of the DoP v1 specification and this is another product that handles both PCM and DSD furthering the fact that the two go together like peas and carrots.

Do you Facebook? If so, maybe you saw this post from HDtracks back on March 13, "Another quicker survey. Would you be interested in DSD downloads ?". Hmm. The plot thickens.
