"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music"
2 channel AD / DAMADA-2
The Forssell Technologies MADA-2 is an extremely high quality, bear-bones, two channel Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) and Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) housed in a 1U rack mount enclosure. The MADA-2 is designed for the most demanding applications, where capturing musical performances with accuracy and honesty is required.
MDAC-2a is an extremely high quality two channel digital to analog converter housed in a 1U rack mount enclosure. The most revealing details, depth and natural sound with perfectly balanced frequency spectrum bring a new dimension into monitoring, analogue processing or "audiophile" listening. Suitable for the most demanding applications. Sample rates from 44.1k to 192k.
A single front panel switch selects either the AES3 or SPDIF input and has LED indicators showing which input is selected. There are LEDs for digital Input error, and digital input lock status. The analog Outputs are a balanced, floating configuration allowing either balanced or single-ended loads using high quality XLR connectors. The digital inputs are single wire AES3 (XLR), and SPDIF (RCA) with sampling rates up to 192k.
