API A2D - 2 312 Mic Preamps with API Digital Out

The API A2D is a 2-channel mic preamp with a high-quality A/D converter and both analogue and digital outputs. 

The A2D features two API 312 Mic Preamplifiers - the same pres found in the API 3124+. Each 312 preamp has a level control, 20 segment led meter, phase flip, 48v Phantom Power, pad, mic/line selector and 2:1 transformer routing which selects a lower gain contribution from output transformer.

The A2D has balanced analogue outputs as well as integrated digital output. The digital section includes two discrete API 2510 amplifiers with level pots feeding the A/D converters. Each channel features 20 segment LED meters. A choice of six sample rates are offered from 44.1kHz through to 192kHz.

Digital output connections include AES on XLR, and S/PDIF on single-ended RCA. Coaxial BNC accepts external Super Clock.

A balanced TRS insert point goes direct to the A/D converter allows for external analogue processing.
