German converter manufacturer Ferrofish has announced a Dante-compatible version of its Pulse 16 line of AD/DA, Madi and Adat converter – the Pulse 16 DX.

Ferrofish Pulse 16 DXLike the Pulse 16 MX Madi/Adat converter, the Pulse 16 DX features 16 fully balanced analogue inputs and outputs. Additionally, it offers two RJ45 ports for integration into a Dante audio network. This means that not only all 16 analogue inputs and outputs can be integrated into a Dante network, but that the Pulse 16 DX can also be used as a format converter between various digital interfaces.

The Pulse 16 DX features single- or multimode-operation via a SFP module. The BNC connections provide Word Clock I/O and two TFT screens allow for complete control of all levels and settings on the device. The 1U-high rack unit also boasts input and output gain of all analogue channels switchable in 1dB steps.

The Pulse 16 family – which includes the new Pulse 16 DX, Pulse 16 MX and the original Pulse 16 – uses Cirrus Logic converter chips with an active digital jitter elimination, which compensates shifts or jitters in the audio signal.

‘Ferrofish is staying on the forefront of audio connectivity with the new Pulse 16 DX,’ says Derek Badala US Ferrofish distributor, Synthax . ‘Featuring the same high-quality features and pristine audio quality users have come to expect from Ferrofish, the Pulse series equips audio engineers with everything they need to establish Dante compatibility.’

Pulse 16 DX is available now and priced at US$1,999 MAP.
