DAD AX32  Format Converter and Audio Interface

 Analog – Digital – AES – MADI – ProTools HDX – Dante I/O

Pristine AD and DA Audio converter with superb sonic quality mic pres, versatile digital I/O structure with a choice of connection via DANTE, ProTools HDX, MADI and AES/EBU. The DAD AX32 follows the path of the legendary DAD AX24 with enhanced performance in terms the sonic quality of the AD and DA conversion, up-to 48 analogue audio channels and a flexible DD signal routing distribution structure.

DAD AX32 is the ultimate choice for an A/D or D/A converter front-end or digital format converter for broadcast, recording or mastering applications where 8 to 48 channels of analogue inputs or outputs are needed for your DAW. Further more DAD AX32 provides a versatile digital interface structure, and audio interfacing via IP for DANTE networks.

Designed for flexibility, reliability, easy operation and maximum sound quality.

Flexible AD/DA configuration, with mic-pre option.

AX32 allows you to configure the number of AD Line and Mic channels and DA channels that you need. Analogue input and output channels can be configured in groups of eight for a total of 48 combined input and output channels. All input channels can be installed with mic-pres in pairs of two. The AX32 can be configured as only DA or AD or a combination here of. The AX32 mic-pre has an outstanding performance with an equivalent input noise below -133 dB, and gain steps circuitry with relays ensuring that no un-linearly distortion is added to the sensitive microphone signal when amplified. The AX32 DA converter provides high-performance output level and gain control. With level stepped circuitry using relays, the outputs can connect directly to your  monitoring system, ensuring high dynamic range and no disturbing clicks when changing formats or powering down.

Versatile digital interface structure.

AX32 has a fixed configuration of digital interfaces for connecting via AES-EBU, S/PDIF, MADI, Pro Tools HDX and IP Ethernet audio compliant to Dante. One additional card slot is available for other interfaces which can be optionally installed. Currently this slot can hold an optical MADI or S/PDIF TosLink interface .

Sync interfaces via word clock, AES11, Video, and all digital signal inputs. Sample rate can be set to internal or external, The sample rate can be set via all external devices.
