m-audio FLYING CALFThe Flying-Calf units !!..... Midiman's budget version of the Flying-Cow.... these 'Calf' units offer quality conversion from s/pdif to analog or analog-s/pdif....and fill a product gap just right.....
Ideal to gain extra analog outputs from soundcards with an un-used s/pdif output, or to add cost effective monitoring to an s/pdif eqipt edting workstation where you don't want to use the DAT machine in standby mode to get a decent monitor source..... brilliant products anyways.... simply cut down from the Cow model, with no clock......anyways... here's the blurb from the Midiman pages........
