Prism audio AD/DAs are considered by many to be the cream of the crop, the top of the pile, the king of the hill etc, when it comes to audio conversion. Their new Orpheus Firewire interface brings that sound into a more affordable package.
    Features

  • Dedicated FireWire interface
  • ASIO and WDM drivers provided for Windows XP and VISTA
  • Directly compatible with CORE AUDIO on Mac OS X 10.4+ (Intel & PPC)

  • Four high-end integrated mic preamps (typ.-130dBu EIN), switchable phantom
  • MS Matrix processing on mic inputs

  • Prism Sound "Overkillers" on every analogue channel to control transient overloads

  • Low-latency "console-quality" digital mixer for foldback monitoring
  • Fader, pan, cut, solo on every mixer channel
  • Dual headphone outputs each with its own front-panel volume control
