ATI is debuting its Model ADAC-2, an A/D-D/A sample rate converter in its new ATI Digital Audio line.
It supports two channels at up to 24-bit word length and 192 kHz sampling rate.
Three audio paths allow users to convert one stereo program from analog to digital, a second stereo program from digital to analog and a third digital audio program from one sample rate to another, simultaneously and without interaction, the manufacturer said.
The ADAC Mode button switches the front-panel controls and displays between A/D, D/A and SRC modes, so users can set up each function. The setup is saved when switching to the next mode.
The ADAC-2 includes selectable balanced and unbalanced analog inputs, transformer-isolated AES3 inputs and outputs, S/PDIF digital audio inputs and outputs, optical inputs and outputs and Word Clock outputs for DAC and SRC sync. The low-jitter internal clock can be configured to use Word, Bit, Master or Double-Master clock references.
Full displays show the condition of each signal path and settings. Analog level is metered and adjustable from the front, and an audiophile Class-A biased headphone output circuit with level control is included for monitoring. A control lockout feature disables front-panel controls to protect settings from inadvertent changes.
