Overview
  • 1Description

The Digigram AQONDA8 Ethernet Audio Bridge would be commonly referred to as a "digital snake" with 8 analog inputs and outputs on 3-pin XLR connectors, capable of both microphone and line level signal. The AQONDA8 uses Ethernet connections to and from digital consoles, additional bridges and other gear, in order to create a loss-less digital signal path for live sound, broadcast and recording applications. The AQONDA8 is remotely programmable, capable of microphone and line level switching, phantom power, various routing configurations and more. Digigram's high quality converters are capable of 44.1 and 48kHz sampling rates.

Convert up to 8 analog signals into as many EtherSound channels
Extract up to 8 EtherSound channels to 8 analog outputs
2 models: AQONDA 8 (8-in/8-out) - AQONDA 16 (16-in/16-out)
ES-Giga 2x256 channel count
ES-Giga additional network / control capabilities
ES-Giga TCP/IP data tunneling: remote control components such as amp control devices, DMX lighting controllers, processors, etc.
Outside Broadcasting
AQONDA audio bridges offer an affordable "digital snake" solution with no compromise on audio quality. Redundant ring capability will bring you peace of mind by guaranteeing 100% on-air time.
Live Events
Build a large scale audio bus between the stage and front-of-house, providing audio quality from Digigram and remotely controllable preamps from popular digital consoles with EtherSound connectivity such as Yamaha or Innovason consoles
Versatile Digital Snake
Through the very same ES-Giga network link, transport up to 512 audio signals plus the control and monitoring data for the entire system. Don't be afraid of sharing your network with the lighting guys. The system is designed to give audio the top priority, whatever happens with the other encapsulated data
Compatibility with existing EtherSound Setups
While ES-Giga compatibility makes this EtherSound audio bridge future-proof, it is also perfectly compatible with existing ES-100 setups. A simple switch on the back panel will turn this ES-Giga workhorse into a regular ES-100 interface with no compatibility restrictions.

Uncompromised Quality in a Small Package

No compromise on audio quality: the inputs cover a linear gain range from microphone to line level
Extremely high end preamps
Preamps remotely controllable from popular digital consoles with EtherSound connectivity (e.g. Yamaha or Innovason consoles).
Made-to-last analog/network Neutrik connectivity.
Compact 2U 19-inch rack form factor, flawless build quality
