32 in / 32 out AD/DA converter with Dante, coaxial and multi mode MADI and ADAT

BSW PART: A32-DANTE

The A32 Dante brings our flagship into the Dante network: All interfaces, whether analog, MADI or ADAT, are brought using the integrated routing matrix in the Dante network. Of course, all features of the A32 are still available.

The A32 Dante is not just a converter – it’s also the ultimate problem solver thanks to its incredible flexibility. Overall, the A32 Dante processes 384 channels, all highly integrated into a 1HU rack unit. Enumerating all the configurations of the A32 Dante is almost impossible: in addition to the 32 x 32 studio-grade balanced analog inputs and outputs up to 192kHz, there are four ADAT I/O, two MADI I/O ports, and of course Dante, brought out redundant on two RJ45 jacks. Everything freely freely routable in groups of 8 channels each.

Clarity and operational reliability has first priority: Both Dante and MADI are laid out redundant, an essential feature for live operation! Of course, a second power supply can be connected, and thanks to the four TFT screens, the user always has full control.
