Most of these measurements have been made by the users of the Fastmusic Box. Typically, the measurements have an accuracy of about 300 µs. If you have reasons to think that the data is incorrect, please write us an email. We can only give a guaranty that a particular audio interface will indeed work the FMB if the audio interface has been purchased by us.
