Topic: Front end sample rate converter for Fireface UFX
I use the Fireface UFX (not the UFX II) for music listening as a DAC with AES or SPDIF (Toslink) input. The digital signal is routed to a software convolution engine (Acourate) as ASIO. When the source sample rate is constant (e.g. 44.1, 96 etc), it works well. However, if the source rate changes and I do not change the input source rate in Fireface USB settings panel, my setup fails.
The RME ADI-192DD appears to be a solution that would allow any source rate to be sent to the UFX by means of sample rate conversion to a constant input, such as 192. However, it is a big rig for a single source conversion job.
Is there a different RME product that is less expensive but does what I am looking for? Or, a non-RME product?
