Legendary Modular AD/DA Convertor
The Pinnacle of audio performance, the ADA-8XR has found itself home in some of the world’s most iconic recording facilities (Metropolis, British Grove etc) and utilised in high profile projects including Star Wars & Lord of the Rings.
The ADA-8XR offers accurate, ultra detailed A/D and D/A conversion providing complete focus of sound to ensure you’re not distracted by colouration while allowing every nuance of a performance to be heard.
Modular design allows for the flexibility of having either an 8 input/8 output, 16 input OR 16 output converter. With digital I/O cards for AES, Firewire and Pro Tools HDX also available.
Clocking and Synchronisation
The ADA-8XR works flawlessly as a master clock for your entire system providing rock solid stability and jitter rejection for crystal clear imaging. No external clock source can improve the performance of the ADA-8XR.
Multi-Sample Rate Compatibility
Independent paths allow for different sample rates being sent and received simultaneously.
The ADA-8XR is a modular system and this provides great flexibility when creating systems with larger numbers of channels. Whether you need just a few channels of high-quality conversion or large a multi-track setup, the ADA-8XR is the natural choice. Using combinations of the basic system options and the range of digital interfaces you can build the system that perfectly matches your requirements.
The ADA-8XR takes the philosophy of the widely-acclaimed Prism Sound converter range a stage further: Now, the goals of ultimate sound quality, unbeatable performance and un-matched versatility have been realised in a modular multi-channel, 24-bit 192kHz-capable format. The ADA-8XR provides A/D and D/A conversion and the essential digital interfaces with a stereo monitor mix output in digital and analogue formats.
Clocking & Synchronization
Unlike most other converter systems, the ADA-8XR is ideal as a master clock for your entire system, whether running from its precision internal reference or from an external source. No external clock source can improve the performance or influence the sound of the ADA-8XR. In addition, the ADA-8XR can run in Pro Tools Loop Sync mode, or lock to AES3, AES11 or Wordclock. The ADA-8XR delivers your recordings with perfect transparency, whatever the setup.
