  • 1Description

The FERROFISH A16 - AD/DA Converter with ADAT is designed for professional digital audio recording applications. The 1RU unit features 16 balanced TRS I/O with 24-bit 192 kHz conversion and utilizes a 32-bit high performance ARM processor. It also features BNC Word Clock in and out, MIDI In/Out/Thru, as well as 2x ADAT for an additional 16 channels of digital I/O.

The input and output gain of each channel can be individually adjusted and two TFT displays provide high resolution metering on all inputs and outputs. Presets can be managed using the built in user interface and the keys can be locked to prevent accidental or unauthorized adjustments to the unit's settings. Channel assignments can be controlled using the included graphical routing software. The unit features SNMP multiplexing (SMUX) network remote control via MIDI. The unit can be upgraded to the A16 MKII version with MADI after purchase.

    Ferrofish A 16 AE reviews

    A16 - AD/DA Converter with ADAT is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the Price, put it in your rack now! I use this to expand my Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt to have an additional 16 in/outs Via ADAT. I use the outs on the converter to feed a 16 channel analog summing box(SPL MixDream XP). I use the inputs on the converter to bring the signal back in from the MixDream and other Outboard gear(Compressors and Other PreAmps) to the Apogee so I don't have to use It's Inputs and have to switch cabling between recording and mixing. I find the FerroFish to be very open and clear from left to right. I have it running off of the Apogee clock Via BNC cable on 44.1. I have no complaints. Sounds just as good as the Apogee Converters in the Ensemble to me. The user interface takes a few to figure out but once you do its nothing to complaint about. The display is nice and clear, easy to see. I only give it a 4.0 because there are obviously better converters on the market but for the price and quality I think it's a steal! I'm very picky about not putting bad gear in my rack and this definitely is not that!
