Prism Sound 8C AES I/O module for Dream ADA8XR



12-Month Special Financing**

SKU: PRI8CAES Categories: , Tag Brand:



The 8C-AES AES3 I/O Module (type PREV039/6/1) provides eight channels of digital audio input and output for the ADA-8XR on four AES3 carriers in each direction. The input and output sections of the module are completely independent – that is, they can be assigned to different paths with different sample rates, Sync Sources, and other options. The AES3 I/O module can be thought of as two modules in one – one input module and one output module.

The module can accommodate extended sample rates (up to 192kHz) in Split96 (two-wire) or high-speed (one-wire) modes and can output consumer or professional Channel Status. Inputs and outputs may be jumpered to comply with either AES3 or S/PDIF carrier voltage levels and impedances.
