It allows up to 32 channels of 192 kHz audio to stream in and out via its USB 2.0 interface, and can be connected to a PC, Mac, or an iPad running USB-enabled audio applications. The Orion 32 also features fiber-optic MADI inputs and outputs, for passing up to 32 channels of 96 kHz audio to external MADI gear. Two ADAT input ports and two ADAT output ports supply up to 16 channels of 48 kHz audio, and 32 channels of analog audio inputs and outputs are supplied on Tascam-compatible D-SUB connectors, all in a single rack space design.

A standard word clock input is provided on a BNC connector, in order to utilize an external clock
A 10 MHz clock input is also provided on BNC, to utilize an external Atomic Clock, such as the separately available Antelope Isochrone 10M
The custom-built USB chip allows low-latency operation on both PC and Mac platforms
The abundance of inputs and outputs on the Orion 32 provide versatile routing options, which can be managed with a supplied software interface

          Comments about Antelope Orion 32 Multi-Channel AD/DA Converter:

          I've purchased two of these units and returned them for another solution. The Orion has lots of inputs which is great and it's an amazing deal considering you also get an Antelope clock. However, the mids were very compressed and I found the sound a bit blurry. It's nowhere near the best sounding interface borderline pro I think - but certainly adequate for semi-pro applications and home studios that have high track count needs

            Comments about Antelope Orion 32 Multi-Channel AD/DA Converter:

            I use this product as my link between the analog/digital world for my studio. I have a Toft console that feeds the Orion and the conversions are perfect. I replaced two MOTU units for this and am super pleased!
