The ATI DM500 Portable Audio D/A Monitor provides professional headphone monitoring and D/A (digital-to-analog) audio conversion for in-studio or remote recording applications.
The rear panel features AES/EBU, S/PDIF and BNC digital audio connectors; each with loop through output connections that allow the DM500 to be inserted into the audio chain. The professional grade converters are capable of providing pristine audio results from sources that provide up to 24-bit / 96kHz resolution.
The analog line output is a 2 piece, Phoenix connector and the 1/4" TRS headphone amplifier delivers a strong output signal with a very low noise floor. The DM500's LED indicators tell everything you need to know about the incoming audio signal. The LEDs display input signal, sample rate, errors and more.
With its rugged design it is built to withstand the rigors of the road and with AC (optional power supply) or battery powering (4x 9V batteries not included), field audio engineers, recording studio engineers and professional film crews will appreciate the DM500's flexibility.
Note: AC power supplies are optional. The DM500 is supplied with a battery pack but the required 4x 9V batteries are not included.
Battery or AC Powered
The DM500 is a versatile solution in studios or on remote locations. The unit may be powered with an optional AC power supply or 4x 9V batteries (not included).
Flexible D/A Conversion
AES/EBU, S/PDIF and BNC inputs feed an analog line and 1/4" TRS headphone output. The DM500 is capable of 24-bit/96kHz resolution.
Each digital input features a loop-thru connection (with termination) for inserting the DM500 within an audio chain. This is ideal for video and professional audio monitoring applications.
Versatile LED Indicators
The DM500's LED indicators tell everything you need to know about the incoming audio signal. The LEDs display input signal, sample rate, errors and more.
