The DAL 150 EzLink digital audio transcoder and interface links the USB port of a compatible PC (running Windows 98 SE/Me/2000/XP) to any coaxial digital-audio input (such as those found on AV receivers and component CD recorders). In bridging the chasm between your computer and your audio system, the DAL 150 accepts MP3 audio files from your Windows PC, transcodes them into the PCM digital format, and sends them to your desired coaxial digital terminal (USB-to-SPDIF).
The DAL 150 is also capable of passing the MP3 bit stream to products with built-in MP3 processing, such as all the latest Harman Kardon AV receivers. EzLink can convert an MP3 file or bit stream to PCM format for playback on many audio products. Your receiver may then process the selection using one of the many available surround modes. When used with a Harman Kardon A/V receiver, EzLink may be set to simply pass the MP3 bit stream through to the receiver, for onboard MP3 decoding--which frees up processing power in your computer.
Once connected to a PC, the DAL 150 is automatically recognized as a Windows Plug and Play multimedia device. The DAL 150 uses the Windows Media Player 7.1 (supplied with the DAL 150's installation disc), letting you play back your favorite music through the high-quality DACs and amplifiers in their existing audio components and delivering significantly improved audio reproduction that brings new levels of fidelity and sonic accuracy to computer-music playback. The DAL 150 is self-powered by the computer's USB port and does not require an external power supply. USB and coaxial digital-audio cables are supplied with the unit.
The DAL 150 EzLink won a prestigious Innovations 2002 Design and Engineering Award from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). The Innovations awards program is one of the industry's most recognized, honoring excellence in the latest designs and concepts in consumer electronics.
Sounded like the perfect go between my computer and my HK Receiver. I LOVE the 7.1 sound I get from the system, but the DAL150 only works with WM 9.0 or earlier. Read morePublished on August 3, 2007 by Lanny H. Headley
This unit is great, but limited. If you just want to play MP3's on your stereo in your living room via Windows Media Player only. This unit is for you. Read morePublished on January 23, 2007 by D.
