PreSonus DigiMax DP88PreSonus DigiMax DP88 8-channel microphone preamplifier and ADA converter combines eight remote-controllable, high-headroom mic preamps with advanced remote control features and connectivity, and integration with the company’s Studio 192 audio interface.

The newest member of the PreSonus DigiMax series, the 96kHz, 24-bit DP88 uses Burr-Brown converters with 118dB of dynamic range. Eight digitally controlled XMax class-A preamps provide an analogue signal path with a separate digital volume control circuit. Phantom power is individually switchable for each preamp. Each channel is equipped with an eight-segment LED input meter and a phantom power indicator.

In addition to offering front-panel control, the DP88’s preamps use simple Midi CC messages to control level, phantom power, and direct ADC input. When connected via Adat optical to a PreSonus Studio 192 audio interface, the DigiMax DP88’s preamp controls also are accessible from PreSonus’ Studio One DAW and UC Surface control software for Mac OS-X and Windows. No additional setup is required; the DigiMax DP88 becomes an extension of the Studio 192 inputs and outputs.

All inputs and outputs are on the rear panel. The DP88 provides eight channels of Adat Optical I/O at up to 96kHz (using dual SMUX). Mic inputs are on XLR and DB25 connectors. Eight direct, analogue-to-digital, line-level inputs are available on DB25 and can be accessed per channel with a front-panel button, allowing you to keep all of your gear connected at the same time

Eight balanced direct outputs are provided on a DB25 connector, as are eight balanced DAC outputs for monitor mixes or speaker switching. Midi I/O is available on a multi-pin connector, and breakout cable and word clock I/O on BNC connectors. The DP88 can serve as the master clock or synchronised externally via Adat or word clock.

The DigiMax DP88 is expected to be available in Q3 2015 with a street price of US$699.
