The black Eclipse 384 from Antelope is a 384 kHz capable analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converter clocked by the company's renowned 64-bit technology. It features a flexible monitoring system and provides mastering and mixing engineers higher levels of productivity, sound quality and ease of use.

Clocked by two independent 64-bit DSP Trinity-level clocks, the fully integrated monitor controller employs 0.05 dB-accurate gold-plated relay attenuators and provides speaker switching, bass management and cue mix functions with integrated talkback.

The Eclipse also includes two dedicated headphone amplifiers and a custom USB interface, as well as two large peak meters on the front panel. The advanced software control panel compatible with both Mac- and Windows-based computers, allows for creating five custom presets for easy recall of favorite setups.

For the live sound engineer using digital consoles, the unit provides a sync reference for up to four different devices, and allows for the use of the main D/A for backing material, the A/D with multiple digital outs feeding redundant recording systems, and the monitor DAC to check the recording post A/D conversion.

The integrated patching and routing capabilities make monitoring of either analog or digital sources extremely simple, avoiding jitter, distortion, and cabling noise. By eliminating the many input and output stages and their various power supplies that would be present in separate devices, the noise floor can be substantially reduced and the audio quality significantly improved.
