Trends Audio Launches UD-10.1 USB Audio Converter to bridge the gap between a media PC/Mac and an audiophile-grade sound or home entertainment system !


Hong Kong, August 1, 2007 – ITOK Media Ltd’s innovative Hi-Fi brandTrends Audio
( launched their new Audiophiles-Grade device – Trends UD-10.1
USB Audio Converter. It has upgraded the board to version 1.1 with new USB B type socket
and provides a high end type A to type B cable. New version applied audiophile grade
materials and electronic components, including the high-quality Japanese/Korean precise
SMD resistors and capacitors. Besides reducing the space, it also reduces the resident
inductance (relative to DIP components). The power filtering and decoupling is using Sanyo
OS-CON solid-state electrolyte capacitors. The analog signal decoupling and coupling are
using ELNA Silmic electrolyte capacitors and WIMA MKP10 film capacitors.

“As we all know, Microsoft’s Media Center helped propel a growing synergy between PCs and
entertainment systems that continues unchecked to this day. One unsung plyer in this
ongoing convergence of computing and High-end audio is the USB Audio Converter” said
David Ho, the marketing director of Trends Audio. “Trends UD-10.1 USB audio converter
plugs into your PC or Mac’s USB port and lets you connect your computer to your Hi-Fi
or Home Cinema system easily, and with high sound quality”

Trends UD-10.1 USB Audio Converter can link a PC/Mac with coaxial, optical and standard
AES/EBU(110 Ohm via XLR) and S/PDIF (75 Ohm via RCA or BNC). This permits a PC/Mac to
essentially impersonate a high-end digital-playback device, such as a high-end music DVD
or CD player. The PC/Mac can also pass digitally encoded signals into a receiver or
signal pre-processor/pre-amplifier for high-end audiophile applications.

“Thanks to the excellent power supply handling, the high accuracy clock and the
sophisticated digital output circuit, the Trends UD-10.1 makes your PC/Mac to behave
as a high-end CD transport to work with an external DAC. Yet, the Trends UD-10 and
PC/Mac combination provides better sound quality, larger storage capacity and a more
user-friendly interface than most standard CD players.” said Ricky Leung, the chief
engineer of Trends Audio.

Trends UD-10.1 USB Audio Converter best suit users who either already have conventional
loudspeakers they’d like to use with a media PC rig, or want to bridge the gap between
a media PC/Mac and an audiophile-grade home entertainment or sound system. Meanwhile, it
provide a huge business for system builders, the biggest opportunities will come from
helping clients set up PC-based or Mac entertainment systems and incorporate such systems
into existing entertainment systems.
