Music, for thousands of years, has been at the center of social and cultural aspects to convey emotions and stories to a vast audience. In the modern world, the usage of digital audio has been the main method of consuming music; however, the method in which the translation of a digital audio signal to the analog realm is taken for granted. In this paper, a audio receiver was designed to accept a USB audio signal from any digital source and output an audio signal for headphones or speakers. The receiver was designed to output a maximum of 350W into speakers and 7W into headphones.
