Ferrofish A32 Multimode AD/DA Converter

32-in/32-out AD/DA multi-mode converter with coaxial and single mode MADI and ADAT
MFR# A 32

Product Description

The Ferrofish A32 is a quality, feature rich 32 channel AD/DA converter that is designed to offer any professional robust and uncompromising performance in the studio or live.

Analog taken Seriously

Ferrofish uses converters from Cirrus Logic with great analog performance. Every analog input and output has analog switches for selecting between +4dBu, +13 dBu and +20 dBu, and every channel you can set separately. The levels which lie in between are set by an Analog Devices Sharc DSP. So, whether you connect professional or consumer equipment, you will always have the best analog performance.

giving control back to you

There are four TFT screens in the A32! Why? Because you need to have control over what happens. No need to install a program on the PC to have the ability to see the levels and adjust everything. Just take a look on the A32, and you see what's happening, all 64 analog channels clearly visible on high resolution level meters. But thats not all, press the MENU key, and enjoy the extensive user interface. By the way, no need to study the manual, the A32 explains on the help screens what happens, so you never get lost...and the A32 speaks five languages!

The clock and digital PLL system

For the master clock Ferrofish has used a temperature compensated high quality oscillator. But also when you use MADI or ADAT as clock source, the digital PLL produces a virtually jitterless sampleclock for the converters. Just listen to the A32, you will hear the difference!

stability first

Ensuring a reliable system the A32 includes two power inputs. If one power supply fails, you see a warning on the TFT screens, and you can search for the failure while the A32 still works with the other supply. MADI is also laid out redundant: If you connect both, optical and coax, the input automatically switches to the other source, if sync is lost. So next time your cat bites the optical cable, the A32 still uses the coax connection as backup.

Headphones

If you ever wondered what happens on a analog or digital channel you will find the headphone connector very useful. With one touch of the encoder you see the headphone screen. There you can set the volume, and select the source for the headphone output. You can also store up to seven mixes, and just select one to hear it on the headphones.

Analog Devices Sharc DSP

One of the most exciting new features is the fourth generation Sharc DSP put inside. This DSP is connected to all 258 analog and digital channels, and is able to freely route and mix all these signals. Besides of that, it can do audio processing, so the features of the A32 can be expanded easily.

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!

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.

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.
Michael D.
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.
