Champlain, NY (December 8, 2005)–Violet Audio has announced the U.S. launch of the new “ADP61” 24bit 192kHz Studio AV Preamp Decoder and will be showcasing it at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, January 19-22.
According to Violet, the new ADP61 Studio AV Preamp/Decoder is the perfect “digital control hub” for professional and project studios, home theatres, and permanent installations. With a multitude of analog, digital, and S-Video inputs, the ADP61 allows remote control selection of both visual and audio signals for a wide range of source material.
“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.”
ADP61 can be used as the main control hub bridging all audio and video connections together while offering a simple yet powerful monitoring control solution. It is also suitable for the mixer-less DAW (digital audio workstation) studio.
The ADP61 allows monitoring and decoding for all signals from stereo to 6.1 surround audio. 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)
The ADP61 is available at an MSRP of $1,495. NAMM attendees are welcome to visit the company’s U.S. distributor, Kaysound, in Hall A, booth 6809.
