Mic pre with analog gain in 3 dB steps and digital gain with 0.25 dB accuracy is available for AX24 providing a sonically very transparent integrated Mic pre and ADC design.  The Dynamic range is between 118 & 121 dB and the Mic pre equivalent noise floor is at -130 dB. AX24 offers an impressive dynamic range , making it the quietest and most transparent converter on the market.

Full remote controllable via USB or Ethernet
AX24 is ideally suited for stage box applications or machine room environment, due to the powerful remote control.  The remote control interface is RS-422 and can be adapted to USB, Ethernet or other data formats providing a very flexible control structure.

The DADman control utilities, provides various control interfaces for MAC and PC
This enables the Mic pre controls can be represented on the channel strip of major consoles, and various DAW including ProTools HD

Modular Interface structure
All DAD-I/O modules are available for AX24 providing interfacing for the most used PCM formats up-to 96 kHz.  Additionally the 8 channel AES3 module can interface 192 kHz and 384 kHz on a multiple wire interface.

The MADI interface
Supports all the sampling formats of the AX24, and is an extremely powerful and capable interface MADI which input and output all the PCM rates up-to 192 kHz as well as DSD and DXD.  The interface can be configured to operate in a daisy chain for connecting more converters to the same MADI link.  The MADI interface and the converter can be set to access any of the up-to 64 MADI channels in any configuration in blocks of 8 consecutive channels.  All "unused" channels are linked trough the interface with very low latency of only a few samples.

External synchronization to AES 11, Word Clock, Super clock or video (PAL, NTSC, SECAM)
The built-in PLL circuit is able to correct for minor variations in the external sync clock signal, giving a very stable adaptation to the external synchronization signal.

Sync alarm
If a digital output is chosen with the DA source button, and the digital input for some reason is out of synchronization, the red Sync alarm LED will blink. This function is available to secure that the whole recording system is synchronized.  The function can be turned off in the system menu.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
