Builds on the massive success of U1 Mini

All-new processing hardware and software offer enhanced features and greater resampling flexibility, while retaining all of the musicality seen in so many outstanding U1 Mini reviews.

Key hardware features carried over from the U1 Mini include the quad clock system and 5 different digital outputs with USB now capable of up to DSD512.
