APHEX 228 8 CHANNEL AUDIO INTERFACE UNIDIRECTION
Today's multichannel sound of 5, 6, 7 or more channels makes using two channel interfaces cumbersome and expensive. Furthermore, the greatest need by far is to translate consumer level outputs to professional level inputs. Bidirectionality is seldom needed. That's why Aphex created the Model 228 Unidirectional Level Interface. It is perfectly suited to the vast majority of multichannel uses in the studio and the theater.
The 228 combines outstanding audio performance with utility features that will make your installation and operation much easier. The front panel extended range VU meter lets you calibrate and monitor each channel individually. Eight 2-color signal presence/clip indicators let you know instantly if sound is present on each channel and if overload occurs.
Front panel gain trims for all eight channels allow you to balance the match gain. Fully clockwise, gain is calibrated to the reference 11.78dB. Counterclockwise, the trimmer attenuates by 12dB, giving you unity gain. For theater installations, a provision is made to dim all the lights on the front panel.
A test CD with commonly used reference levels is included for easily matching up your specific equipment.Features:
