Prism Audio Dream Series ADA-8XR with 16 channels of AD Conversion and PTHDX Digital I/O Card

The Pinnacle of audio performance, the ADA-8XR has found itself home in some of the world's most iconic recording facilities (Metropolis, British Grove etc) and utilised in high profile projects including Star Wars & Lord of the Rings.

With a lifespan of over 20 years in the industry, this British designed and engineered convertor embodies Prism Sound's no compromise approach to audio.

APPLICATIONS
The ADA-8XR is the audio industries converter of choice in the most exacting applications in music and sound recording, mastering, broadcast and post-production. Offering the cleanest and most transparent conversion available, the ADA-8XR has found a home in some of the most iconic recording facilities worldwide. Ideal for producers, engineers and songwriters wanting to produce the very best results when recording, tracking & overdubbing, mixing to stereo or surround, mastering and monitoring. The ADA-8XR is perfect for recording vocal, single instruments, drums or orchestra and is just as much at home providing multiple outputs for external analogue summing. It is in use in the top studios around the world as well as being used in numerous film soundtracks.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
The ADA-8XR takes the philosophy of the widely-acclaimed Prism Sound converter range a stage further: Now, the goals of ultimate sound quality, unbeatable performance and un-matched versatility have been realised in a modular multi-channel, 24-bit 192kHz-capable format. The ADA-8XR provides A/D and D/A conversion and the essential digital interfaces with a stereo monitor mix output in digital and analogue formats.

CLOCKING & SYNCHRONIZATION
Unlike most other converter systems, the ADA-8XR is ideal as a master clock for your entire system, whether running from its precision internal reference or from an external source. No external clock source can improve the performance or influence the sound of the ADA-8XR. In addition, the ADA-8XR can run in Pro Tools Loop Sync mode, or lock to AES3, AES11 or Wordclock. The ADA-8XR delivers your recordings with perfect transparency, whatever the setup.

Features

  • CONVERSION
    The ADA-8XR offers accurate, ultra detailed A/D and D/A conversion providing complete focus of sound to ensure you're not distracted by colouration while allowing every nuance of a performance to be heard.
  • MODULAR DESIGN

  • CLOCKING AND SYNCHRONISATION
    The ADA-8XR works flawlessly as a master clock for your entire system providing rock solid stability and jitter rejection for crystal clear imaging. No external clock source can improve the performance of the ADA-8XR.
