Description

The Prism Sound ADA-8XR Audio Interface with 16-Channel D/A & FireWire is a 24-bit / 192 kHz modular audio interface offering flexible inputs and outputs, versatile clocking, and configurable routing for demanding music and film production scenarios. It includes two I/O modules, a FireWire interface card, a utility module for 16 balanced analog line-level outputs via XLR 3-pin jacks, eight channels of digital I/O via two FireWire 400 ports, a 1/4″ stereo headphone output, and more. With wide dynamic range, adjustable levels, and low distortion and noise, it delivers high-quality audio performance that is easily customized using the onboard display and comprehensive controls.

Prism Sound ADA-8XR Frame Audio Interface Chassis (No I/O Modules)

The Prism Sound ADA-8XR Frame is a rack-mountable 2 RU audio interface chassis designed to deliver versatile clocking and configurability for producers, musicians, and audio engineers in home, project, and commercial studios. Its modular design yields flexible I/O arrangements thanks to four I/O module slots—two analog and two digital. A variety of modules (available separately) can be installed for access to multichannel analog/digital inputs and outputs as well as Pro Tools or FireWire workstation connectivity.

The ADA-8XR Frame supports resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and can clock internally or to external AES3, AES11, word clock, or Pro Tools Loop Sync. The built-in Utility Module provides stereo analog RCA and digital BNC audio outputs, BNC word clock and XLR AES11 sync I/O, and a DB9 serial communications port. Additionally, the front panel has a 1/4″ stereo headphone output along with assignable 8-channel bargraph meters. An onboard display and comprehensive controls enable efficient adjustment of parameters, which can be quickly stored and recalled via factory and user presets. The ADA-8XR Frame comes with no I/O modules, ready for custom configurations.

  • Modular architecture accommodates special configurations and provides future-proofing with individually upgradeable A/D conversion, D/A conversion, DSP, digital interfacing, and utility hardware
  • Supports sample rates up to 192 kHz
  • 2-channel monitor section follows channel pairs or a mix of all channels
  • 8-channel assignable bargraph meter array with over-detection
  • Renowned Prism Sound jitter-rejecting PLL technology and low-jitter master clock
  • Flexible synchronization options including sync to AES11, word clock, or video sync
  • Flexible routing allows creation of digital-to-digital processing paths for processing or format conversion
  • SNS noise-shapers preserves dynamic quality during 16-/20-bit transfers
  • MR-X bit-splitting allows extended bit depths and sample rates on 16-bit media
  • DRE (Dynamic Range Enhancement) enables 24-bit performance on 16-bit stereo media without sacrificing tracks
  • Optional DSP expansion facility for extended processing features including synchronous sample-rate conversion
  • Comprehensive store system for fast-access factory and user presets
  • Unique “Access button” layout combines the flexibility of menus with the speed of dedicated controls
  • Internet-upgradeable software loads from your computer into flash memory inside the ADA-8XR
  • Rack-mountable enclosure occupies 2 RU of rack space

Prism Sound 8C-DA 8-Channel D/A Module for ADA-8XR Interface

The Prism Sound 8C-DA is an 8-channel D/A module offering uncompromising digital-to-analog conversion for producers, musicians, and audio engineers using a Prism Sound Dream ADA-8XR audio interface in a variety of studio environments. Exhibiting low noise, minimal distortion, and high dynamic range, it features 24-bit/192 kHz D/A converters, which feed analog line level to eight balanced XLR 3-pin male outputs.

For precise calibration and gain optimization, each channel offers output level adjustments in 0.5 dBu increments and output trim tweaks in 0.05 dBu steps. The 8C-DA easily installs into an analog I/O slot of a Dream ADA-8XR (available separately).

  • Adds eight analog line-level outputs to your Prism Sound Dream ADA-8XR audio interface
  • Supports resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz
  • Output level (0.5 dBu increments) and trim (0.05 dBu increments) are adjustable via the host ADA-8XR’s menu system
  • Eight balanced XLR 3-pin male input jacks

Prism Sound 8C-FW 8-Channel FireWire I/O Module for ADA-8XR Interface

The Prism Sound 8C-FW is an 8-channel FireWire I/O module offering flexible digital input and output configurations for producers, musicians, and audio engineers using a Prism Sound Dream ADA-8XR audio interface in a variety of studio environments. With selectable configurations, it supports up to eight channels of I/O at up to 96 kHz or up to four channels of I/O at 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz. Two 6-pin FireWire 400 (1394a) ports enable proper connectivity with computers equipped with 4- or 6-pin FireWire 400. The 8C-FW easily installs into the upper or lower digital I/O slot of a Dream ADA-8XR (available separately) and is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows systems.

  • Eight channels of digital audio I/O at sample rates up to 96 kHz
  • Four channels of digital audio I/O at 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz
