The Audiophillio is fully powered by your USB port and offers plenty of features you won't find elsewhere. It's one of few USB transports that uses fixed frequency clocks, a 12V trigger for control, and VirtualCable, a feature that allows the device to change SPDIF transition speed and eliminate overlapping waves.
"The design goal for Audiophilleo1 was to create a replacement for a CD transport with SPDIF output," says Audiophilleo, "with the addition of features typically found in AV receiver." There's no release date for Audiophilleo's devices yet, but pricing has been announced. The fully featured Audiophilleo1 will sell for $895, while the more stripped down Audiophilleo2 will run $495.
