Via VT1730 & VT 1731 DXD Interface Chip

Via, the Taiwanese company known for producing IC's for the computing industry at highly competitive prices, has announced a DXD compatible set of chips for there new USB Audio Interface generation.

Hopefully this will allow cheap and common consumer goods to support DXD rate PCM, though the quality will have to be evaluated, it is the first step towards broader acceptance of the format.

I missed this when it was announced May 16, 2011, and am not aware of any products currently using it.

Sadly it seems Via, despite low price, do not respond to requests for evaluation kits from individuals. Hopefully this is another step toward common availability of DXD interface for consumers.
