Today we’re going to find out if the Douk U2 USB to Toslink optical and coaxial converter knows how to Linux. This was a bit of an adventure since the first unit never reliably powered on and the second was incorrectly assembled.
TL;DW Douk Audio has some serious issues in their QA department, if they have one at all.
Jackbox: Testing setup
|CPU||AMD Ryzen 7 1700|
|RAM||Corsair LPX 16GB|
|Motherboard||MSI B350 Tomahawk|
|GPU||Nvidia Quadro 4000|
|PSU:||EVGA 600 B1|
Verdict: I’m unfamiliar with the Douk product line and the Douk U2 has convinced me to keep it that way. Poor build quality and unreliable hardware are not things I look for in audio devices.
Sounds decent, if it works.
First unit did not reliably power on.
Second unit was not correctly assembled.
USB micro connector.
