Aphex has introduced three digital audio conversion/interface products: the 141A, 142A, and 144A. These devices are SMUX-capable, allowing them to be used at 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz sample rates. The company’s original 140 Series will remain in the Aphex line to provide a lower-cost alternative for customers who don’t require the new flexible, high sample-rate 140A Series.
The 141A (pictured) is an 8-channel ADAT-to-analog converter, the 142A is an 8-channel analog-to-ADAT converter, and the 144A is an AES-to-ADAT and ADAT-to-AES bidirectional interface. All models in the 140A Series are housed in the same half-rack chassis as the original 140 Series, which can be mounted in racks or to use as tabletop devices.
