Ft. Lauderdale, FL (December 20, 2016)—Synthax—the Americas distributor for Ferrofish—has introduced the Ferrofish A32 AD/DA converter with support for Dante audio networking.
Designed to streamline system cabling in both live and installed sound applications, the Ferrofish A32 Dante supports a wide range of audio formats and can serve as a high-end audio format converter.
The Ferrofish A32 AD/DA employs 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with analog gain switches; the gains of each channel can be separately adjusted in 0.5 dB steps, and the standard levels of +4 dBu, +13 dBu and +20 dBu are switched in the analog domain.
Notably, the Ferrofish A32 Dante supports 64 channels of MADI I/O, 32 channels of ADAT optical I/O, and 32 channels of analog I/O. Additionally, any ADAT optical connector can be used alternatively as an S/PDIF or AES/EBU interface.
Audio can be freely routed (in groups of 8) between all interfaces; it is possible to use the first 32 Dante channels for converting to analog while using the remaining 32 Dante channels to connect the A32 Dante with ADAT equipment.
