Sonnet I2S module
The I2S module can be installed instead of the USB module. A new technology is used to make the I2S data format more reliable. Sonnet is using a kind of data transport based on the typical impedance of a standard UTP cable. By using this technology it is important that both transmitter and receiver are made for this quite heavy load of 100 Ohms. As a result lengths of 30 meters between source and receiver can be used without loss or jitter.
The I2S module is dedicated for Sonnet products like for instance our Hermes streamer. However in some cases by removing four jumpers on top of the module it will act as a high impedance receiver and is therefore more flexible to match with other products. Still Sonnet Digital Audio cannot guarantee the correct behaviour in conjunction with other systems. If you have any doubts about the correct match with our products don't hesitate to contact us.
Our DACs can be ordered with the I2S module fitted instead of the standard USB option. Please indicate your preference with your order.
