The FW-02 uses a USB2 interface bus and real-time, glitch free drivers optimized for Windows XP through Windows 10. The FW-02 includes a 12VDC power adapter with a 5.5mm OD / 2.5mm ID center positive connector. 100V - 240V voltage input capability makes it convenient for both desktop and laptop use anywhere in the world. The FW-02 consumes a maximum of 0.55A in normal use, so if you were to use one of the many 12VDC rechargeable battery packs available for cameras, etc., you simply divide the amp-hour rating by 0.55 to estimate how long it will power the audio interface. For example, a 6000mA rated battery pack will power the FW-02 for about 11 hours continuously.
CLIO 12 deserves a high quality computer intended for professional use, but the USB2 interface allows you to choose just about any PC currently available. For those partial to Apple’s products, running Windows 7 or later in a Boot Camp partition works perfectly.
When looking for a proper computer to host the USB2 based CLIO Pocket, just about anything will do but again, junk should be avoided. As always, quality proves to be the least expensive solution in the long run while being a pleasure to use in the short run.
