Product Highlights
  • 8 x 8 Channels Analog Input/Output
  • 8 x 8 Channels AES/EBU Input/Output
  • Analog and AES Available Simultaneously
  • Ultra Low Latency AD/DA Conversion

The A8X8 from Apogee is a 16-channel module for the Symphony I/O that allows for any combination of 8 x 8 analog input and output, and 8 x 8 AES/EBU or optical digital input and output. The module occupies one of the two slots available on the chassis and represents 25 years of Apogee research and design excellence.

Refined and updated circuitry with fewer, more advanced components allows for a shorter audio path, resulting in more clarity and transparency and a more efficient power distribution. The module features enhanced C777 clocking performance and lower converter latency.

The analog and AES I/O require optional breakout cables, available in various configurations to suit individual requirements.
