The PULSE16 DX is much more than a 16 x 16 channel AD / DA converter. In addition to studio-grade analog inputs and outputs up to 192kHz, the PULSE16 DX offers an impressive number of digital interfaces, ready for any task. All equipment, whether analog, ADAT, or MADI is brought together into the device, and can be distributed over a sophisticated routing matrix in groups of 8 channels. And that’s not all: The Dante interface with 64 x 64 channels (also integrated into the routing matrix), redundantly implemented via two RJ45 sockets, connects the PULSE16 DX to the network: Dante opens up a new dimension of flexibility. No matter which analog or digital signals are to be connected: the PULSE16 DX does the job.
Packed in a just 1HU, this highly integrated converter has 16 x 16 balanced analog TRS sockets using studio levels up to +20dBu – individually adjustable in 1dB steps. The Low Latency Cirrus Logic converters, accompanied with a a temperature-compensated clock and jitter reduction PLL guarantee best crystal clear sound.
Besides Dante, the 4 x 4 ADAT ports deliver enough bandwidth to convert all 16 x 16 analog signals at 96kHz, or even 32 x 32 channels at 48kHz. MADI adds another 64 x 64 channels, and is implemented using a modular SFP connection to offer different MADI standards (like Singlemode). Just replace the MADI module by a different model.
Configuring the device is a breeze thanks to the two TFT screens. No need to consult the manual, every information is displayed clearly on the screens. Remote control via MIDI and MADI is also possible. The headphone can be connected to any analog or digital input or output: ideal for control or monitoring. The fanless, compact 1HU device is the ultimate problem solver for studio, live sound, broadcast and recording – wherever high-end, multi-format conversion is needed in the Dante network.
