Digital Audio Labs Announces CDX-D8 AES/EBU Interface
June 7, 2004
Digital Audio Labs has announced their first new hardware product since the asset acquisition by LR Sound, Inc. Designed by the same engineering team responsible for the CardDeluxe, the CDX-D8 marks DALs return to professional computer interface technology.
"Our design goal was to create the most accurate, transparent path between external equipment and the computer system," said Mr. Klein, president and development director for DAL. "Early indications from our beta testers, including home studio users and world class mastering facilities, are that we succeeded. Also, several sites have made special note of the exceptional PLL clock stability."
Comprised of a single 3/4-length PCI card and included breakout cable, the CDX-D8 provides eight discreet channels of AES/EBU format audio on four XLR stereo pairs. Also included are word clock I/O (RCA) and two analog outputs (1/4 TRS) for convenient monitoring. The CDX-D8 employs high quality AES/EBU transformers and a low-jitter, custom PLL for clock stability.
