Thunderbolt For Prism Sound Interfaces


The recent addition of the new Thunderbolt I/O connection to Apple Mac computers means data can be transferred faster than ever – 10Gbps of bidirectional throughput plus a separate display bus.
Lightning fast speed and huge bandwidth has meant Thunderbolt can accommodate nearly any existing connection to a variety of external devices with the necessary adapter, including Prism Sound FireWire audio interfaces Orpheus and ADA-8XR.
Prism Sound say that, after extensive testing on the latest Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 operating system, the Sonnet Thunderbolt Adapter passed with flying colours and will allow Prism Sound FireWire interface users to maintain the same software control and functionality they are currently benefiting from through the FireWire 800 and 400 connection.
The company tells us that any Apple Mac sporting the new Thunderbolt connection (currently the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Mini) will be able to connect to their Orpheus and FireWire ADA-8XR including the latest Mac Book Airs, which was previously lacking any connection above USB 2.0 speed.
MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Mini users will benefit from an extra bus through the Thunderbolt connection meaning external Hard Drives and other FireWire devices can be used simultaneously with the Prism Sound Orpheus and ADA-8XR FireWire interfaces.
