German manufacturer Ferrofish has announced its A32 Dante interface, offering 368-channel capacity with support for AD/DA Dante, Madi and Adat formats.

Ferrofish A32 Dante interfaceWith its Dante networking capability and support for Madi and Adat formats, the Ferrofish A32 Dante is designed for use in complex A/V installations and live sound productions. Its design eliminates the masses of cable often associated with large sound installations through uncompressed, multichannel digital media networking with near-zero latency and synchronisation. Dante replaces heavy, expensive analogue or multicore cabling, with affordable Cat5e, Cat6 or fibre-optic cable for a clean and lightweight solution over a single, standard IP network

The A32 Dante supports 64 channels of Madi I/O, 32 channels of Adat optical I/O and 32 channels of analogue I/O, making it plug-and-play, format agnostic conversion system. Any Adat optical connector can be used alternatively as an S/PDIF or AES/EBU interface. With its AD/DA capacity, the A32 Dante is able to convert audio in groups of eight among any connected device. Further, the unit provides four TFT screens that permit complete control of levels and adjustments on the equipment – including extensive routing possibilities that enable intuitive operation and greater control.

The unit employs high-grade 192kHz, 24-bit high-quality converters, with analogue gain switches. The gain of each channel can be separately adjusted in 0.5dB steps, and the standard levels are switches in the analogue domain – ensuring the full analogue performance of the converter is preserved.

‘The A32 Dante is a game-changer when it comes the way interface devices interact,’ says Mathias von Heydekampf, Ferrofish distributor. ‘The A32 Dante is able to gracefully handle even the most complex conversion applications, while providing unrivalled sound quality, reliability and ease of integration.’

The Ferrofish A32 Dante is now shipping, and carries an MSRP of US$3,799.
