Violet Audio, who make high-end audio gear switching and routing gear, have just announced the US launch of their new "ADP61" 24bit 192kHz Studio AV Preamp Decoder. The ADP61 preamp is designed to be the heart of the monitoring system in the studio, handling the routing of multiple analog and digital inputs. Not just for stereo, the ADP61 handles stereo and surround monitoring up to 6.1 systems with 7 discrete XLR outputs. "With active monitors being used more and more there was a great need for a simple all in one control unit that didn't have a power amp built in," said John Fuller, Product Manager for Violet Audio. "The ADP61 fills that need". With balanced XLR outputs and an infra-red remote control it's simple to monitor any connected devices such as CD, Video, DVD, TV, with ease and listen through active monitors. Decoding is provided for digitally connected devices compatible with Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Surround EX, DTS, DTS ES, DTS ES Matrix, DTS 96/24, DTS Neo, and more!
    The ADP61 connections:
  • 1 x Balanced XLR stereo input
  • 5 x Balanced (25pin multi-channel 5.1 input)
  • 1 x 5.1 unbalanced input
  • 1 x AES EBU digital input
  • 1 x Coaxial digital input
  • 1 x Optical digital input
  • 6 x stereo unbalanced inputs
  • 4 x S-Video inputs
  • 7 x XLR Balanced outputs (6.1)
MSRP $1495 USD. More information about Violet Audio can be found at
