16 channels of creamy 24bit/96kHz 10/10/01Creamware's new PowerPulsar (see recent news item)has been complemented by the new A16 Ultra, a new generation of the successful
A16 AD/DA converter unit. The A16 Ultra combines state-of-the-art technical
specs with the features which made its predecessor so popular.
High-quality 24-bit / 96 kHz AD/DA converters
16 inputs and 16 outputs, balanced analog TRS
2 ADAT interfaces
S/Mux for ADAT conversion at 96 kHz (8-channels)
2 Z-Link interfaces (16 channels at 24-bit / 96 kHz)
16 VU meters for exact signal levelling
Very compact: single rack space 19" unit
In addition, various expansion options for the A16 Ultra are planned: An
add-in board extends S-Mux functionality to 16 channels. With the USB2
option, the converter serves as an I/O solution for any computer system
with a USB2-compliant interface.
Its generous channel count and professional audio quality make the A16
Ultra ideal for use with all I/O cards, digital mixers and instruments
which have an ADAT interface. When used in combination with a CreamWare DSP
system with Z-Link I/O, the A16 Ultra can simultaneously transfer all 16
channels at 24-bits / 96 kHz.
The A16 Ultra is scheduled for November availability at a retail price of
1250 Euro net.
