NAMM06: Symetrix Introduces Lucid 88192 Audio Converter


Symetrix has announced the introduction of the Lucid 88192. This premium audio converter supports eight channels of analog-to-digital, and eight channels of digital-to-analog conversion at sampling frequencies up to 192kHz.
The multi-format unit offers simultaneous connectivity for analog, high-speed AES/EBU digital audio, and SMUX2 ADAT Optical digital audio. An option port is included for future adoption of additional formats.
Touting excellent audio performance and full connectivity, the 88192 also includes some fairly sophisticated routing capabilities. Through an intuitive front-panel menu scheme, inputs are easily routed to single or multiple outputs in both the digital and analog realms. Information, including active metering, is returned to the user in an easy to read vacuum fluorescent display. The deceptively simple front panel includes a push-button encoder and single button to provide all the tools for navigating menus and changing settings in the unit.
Symetrix tell us that superb audio performance is the real bottom line for the 88192. The unit has excellent dynamic range, distortion, and frequency response specifications. It includes the famous Lucid low jitter clock technology, and helps users achieve better recorded results by incorporating the Soft Clip feature on the analog inputs.
Supporting sampling rates up to 192kHz, the converter is expected to find its way into a number of critical production and recording situations such as studios, surround sound production, broadcast production, and mobile recording units.
A spokeperson for Symetrix had this to say, "The Lucid name has always been tied to quality audio, and this product will continue that tradition. We see a need in the market for a premium converter that is versatile enough to be used with a workstation, in a broadcast facility, or in a major studio environment. This one is ready for any situation."
