Audio-gd license Tenor TE8802, launch new products

  • After several months of testing, Audio-gd has this week announced that it is the first company in mainland China to license use of the Tenor TE8802 chip in its production facility. The TE8802 is a USB audio class 2 chip than can handle up to 24/192 without the need for drivers on Mac OS X.  (Third party drivers are required for Windows, Linux not supported – boo).  And yes, the TE8802 is fully asynchronous.

    With this Tenor hardware coup tucked firmly under his belt, Audio-gd’s main man Kingwa has announced four new products that will sport the new USB chip (and one that won’t):

    Each of the above begin shipping on 15th April 2012.

    The TE8802 chip can also be added to the NFB-2.1, NFB-3.1, NFB-5, NFB-9 and NFB-10SE at time of ordering.
