Designed to streamline system cabling in both live and installed sound applications, the A32 Dante supports a wide range of audio formats, incorporates leading edge technology, and can also serve as a hi-end audio format converter. To ensure the finest audio quality, the new A32 Dante employs 24-bit 192 kHz high quality converters with analog gain switches. The gains of each channel can be separately adjusted in 0.5 dB steps, and the standard levels (+4 dBu, +13 dBu und +20 dBu) are switched in the analog domain, ensuring the full analog performance of the converter is preserved.
With its Dante audio networking capability, the new Ferrofish A32 Dante makes a terrific choice for studio, live, and installed applications. By utilizing uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology with near-zero latency and synchronization, the A32 Dante is designed to eliminate the unsightly and often trouble prone mass of cables utilized in large scale productions or AV installations. Dante does away with heavy, expensive analog or multicore cabling, replacing it with low-cost, easily-available CAT5e, CAT6, or fiber optic cable for a clean, lightweight, and economical solution over a single, standard IP network.
The new A32 Dante ensures the finest audio quality in both the analog and digital domains. The A32 Dante's high-end analog circuit is complemented on the digital side by a 400 MHz Sharc DSP that facilitates extremely precise audio calculations to ensure that, on the digital side, not a single bit is lost. The result is stunning audio performance throughout.
