The StringPort very carefully processes, converts and conveys to the computer the polyphonic audio from industry-standard hexaphonic pickups (like the GK, Graph Tek, Zeta and RMC models) through high speed USB2.

High resolution (24bit) converters and impeccable design provide greater than 92 dB SNR from analog in to analog out.
