Battery Power: It is possible to power the UD-10 with battery power for the
best possible sound quality. Using the supplied battery box install four
recharges AA batteries, 2000mAh or larger capacity recommended this will
give you approximately 16hrs of playing time. Small capacity batteries are
suitable but will need recharging more frequently.

irreparable damage.

power, this will be an advantage when you are already using many USB
peripherals. It is recommended that you use a 5V power supply with Centre

There are a lot of good quality audio DAC’s on the market. But a good
inexpensive audio source is still difficult to find. Trends Audio developed the
UD-10 USB Audio Converter as an external sound card. It has four digital
outputs and a headphone socket. It effectively isolates the interference from
within the PC/Mac case, caused by high frequency data signals, the switchingmode power supply and the fan motors.
The UD-10 upgrades your PC/Mac to be a hi-end audio source. Thanks to the
high quality components and engineering the UD-10 makes your PC/Mac into
a high-end CD Player. The UD-10 and PC /Mac combination provides better
sound quality, larger storage capacity and a more user-friendly interface than
most standard CD players. The computer hard disk is far superior to a CD
transport, no matter the speed, stability, error correction or jitter reduction.
1.1 Hints & Tips
Always power the UD-10 before starting your media player.
It’s impossible to advise on the suitability of every media player, operating
system, file type combinations, so for best results experiment.
Use battery power for a more open and spacious sound.
