Specifications

 We always quote 'real world' performance figures (measured to the AES17 standard). Some companies choose to quote chipset performance, which is misleading, and here's why.

Microphone Inputs 1-2

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz +/- 0.2 dB
  • Gain Range: +13dB to +60dB
  • THD+N: 0.001% (measured at 1kHz with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Noise EIN:  124dB analogue to digital  (measured at 60dB of gain with 150Ω termination (20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Input Impedance: 2kΩ

 

DIGITAL PERFORMANCE

  • A/D Dynamic Range > 110dB (A-weighted), all analogue inputs

  • Clock Sources:
    • Internal Clock
    • Sync to Word Clock on SPDIF Input (RCA)

Line Inputs (Inputs 1-2)

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz +/- 0.2dB

  • Input Impedance: >10kΩ

 

Instrument Inputs (Inputs 1 and 2)

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz +/- 0.1dB
