DAD AX24 8 Line A/D & 2 D/A - DSD – No Longer Available

Includes one AES, MADI, TDIF, PTMIX24, SDIF3 or Pro Tools HD interface of your choice
MFR# AX24-L8 + IOM-DA2

Product Description

AX24 allows you to config the number of line and Mic channels that you need at the sample rate currently used.  Analog in and output channels can be expanded in pairs of two.  Especially configurations like two or four analog input channels and six analog output channels are very suitable for mastering or multi-track productions where only few analog input channels are used simultaneously but monitoring in 5.1. is essential. 

Features:

  • Fully Modular - 224 different configurations
  • Sample rates and I/O structure can be upgraded
  • From two to eight analog Line or Mic input channels
  • From two to eight analog output channels
  • 24 bit PCM sample rates up to 384 kHz
  • DXD sample-rate: 352.8 kHz
  • DSD sample rates: 64fs & 128 fs
  • Digital I/O: MADI, AES3, TDIF, and ProTools
  • Digital DSD formats compatible with MADI and SDIF-3
  • Integrated Mic pre with analog gain
  • Full remote controllable via RS-422, USB or Ethernet
  • Mic pre controls can be represented on the channel strip of major consoles and work stations

24 bit PCM sample rates up to 384 kHzDXD and DSD
AX24 is based on the Digital Audio Denmark high quality multi bit converter and modulator design, using a 5 bit delta sigma modulator.  AX24 offers A/D and D/A conversion in PCM up-tp 384 kHz, DSD at 64fs or 128fs and DXD at a sample-rate of 352.8 kHz.  AX24 covers applications for music recording as well as mastering and monitoring in DSD. 

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 eight-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.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.
