The Symphony I/O 8x8
is an 8 x 8 analog and AES/Optical input/output digital audio converter. Consisting of the Symphony I/O Chassis and the A8x8 input/output module, the unit provides any combination of 8 x 8 analog input and output, and 8 x 8 AES/EBU or optical digital input and output. The I/O module features enhanced C777 clocking performance and lower converter latency.
The Symphony I/O Chassis provides two module slots for a variety of digital audio conversion options with one already being filled with the included module. The front panel of chassis presents the visual feedback needed to monitor levels, sample rate and clock status, along with the controls required to adjust gain and output levels.
The converter has multiple connectivity options that include direct connection to a Symphony 64 PCIe card, a USB equipped Intel Mac, or to Avid's Pro Tools HD and HD-X systems. With the addition of the optional
Symphony 64/Thunderbridge interface, the system acquires direct connectivity to any Thunderbolt equipped Mac computer. Additionally, the unit can function standalone.
The analog and AES I/O require optional
breakout cables, available in various configurations to suit individual requirements.
