December 2011

Applied Research and Technology, a division of Yorkville Sound, announces it is shipping the newest member of it’s Project-Series, the ART USB Phono Plus Project Series, a high quality phono and line level preamplifier with USB, Optical and Line level outputs.

Building on the success of the previous iteration the ARTcessories USBPhonoPlusV2, the USB Phono Plus Project Series makes it even easier to transfer any analog or digital audio source, including a turntable, into a computer with the addition of SoundSaver Express Software from BIAS.

The USB Phono Plus Project Series is of course fully compliant with the USB 2.0 specification and uses USB adaptive mode for playback and USB asynchronous mode for audio recording applications. Optical TOSLINK inputs and outputs as well as S/PDIF inputs allow the USB Phono Plus Project Sereis to act as a convenient digital audio to USB interface as well standard line level analog audio / USB conversion tool. Designed to work with the USB audio device drivers in PC Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista, and all versions of Windows7, and Mac OS9.1 or greater (with native USB support) or any OS-X based system, the USB Phono Plus Project Series requires no additional drivers. Housed in an all aluminum black anodized case, USB Phono Plus Project Series can be powered by either an external power supply or directly from a PC based USB host port for added convenience.

The ART USB Phono Plus Project Series is packaged in an attractive and informative 4-color retail box, and includes a USB cable and SoundSaver Express recording software that features sound restoration capabilities.

Other products in ART’s Project-Series include the two channel computer audio interfaces: USBDualPre and USBDualTube as well as the SyncGen, an affordable accurate wordclock generator.

US retail pricing for the USBPhono Plus Project Series is $99.00, which includes a three-year warranty.
