HXDA D/A Converter
16-channel Analogue-output Board with 24-bit D/A Converters
- 16 channels
- Dynamic range: 120 dB(A) @ 15 dBu (typ.)
- THD&N: <0.001% @ 4 dBu (typ.)
- Outputs galvanically isolated in pairs
- Decreased power consumption
This output board features eight 2-channel 24-bit D/A converters producing a maximum output level of 15 dBu with a dynamic range of 120 dB(A). Exceptional balancing specifications, transformer isolation, low output impedance, and optimal dynamic range provide versatile connectivity for power amplifiers or analogue tape machines. The two channels of each output pair are balanced but share a common potential. Each output pair is floating with respect to the other pairs.
Thanks to the circuit design and the manufacturing quality, no calibration is required; therefore manually adjustable electronic components are not incorporated.
This board was specifically designed to meet the requirements of radio applications (15 dBu maximum output level) or static installations featuring a large number of channels (for example, feeding power amplifiers in a sound-reinforcement environment).
Stage Tec D/A-Converter Technology
› Negligible converter inaccuraciesStage Tec D/A converters produce a stable and almost perfect conversion curve, showing virtually no errors over the entire conversion range.
› Ultra-Low THD Stage Tec D/A converters offer ultra-low THD over a wide level range, making them ideally suited to applications such as monitoring, large sound-reinforcement systems, and high-quality analogue recording.
› Homogenous Noise Spectrum Stage Tec D/A converters have a homogenous noise spectrum over the entire conversion range. The intrinsic noise is practically imperceptible even at very low input levels.
› Low Latencies Thanks to the ultra-low latency, the HXDA board is ideally suited to live-sound applications.
Transformer-Insulated Output Stage
Thanks to an innovative and sophisticated design, all channels feature transformer-insulated output circuits. This provides the following benefits when compared with traditional switch-based solutions:
- Insusceptibility to magnetic fields
- Low THD&N at both low and high levels and even at low frequencies
- Low output impedance
- Transformer-Insulated Output Stage
- Precision balancing
- Compact dimensions and low weight
