The Apogee AD-16X combines Apogee's legendary conversion quality up to 192k sample rates. High-definition digital to provide unrivaled flexibility and quality.
C777 Clocking used by Big Ben
The AD-16X uses Apogee's C777 clocking technology. Famous for keeping Big Ben on time, the C777 utilizes an entirely digital process that Apogee has developed with the most advanced Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) technology and DSP-based digital filtering. With a stable, crystal based digital PLL handling the clocking, the AD-16X is able to intelligently manipulate incoming signals and adapt to them accordingly, resulting in unprecedented jitter attenuation and an astonishing and noticeable difference in sound quality.
Advanced Option Routing
With version 2 firmware, both digital inputs and analog outputs may be routed in conjunction with an installed X-Option card. Please see page 7 for details.
With it's wide array of standard and optional digital outputs, the AD-16X can be connected to virtually any digital system. The AD-16X includes AES and ADAT Optical digital outputs as standard, while either the X-HD or X-FireWire cards may be installed for connectivity to Pro Tools HD or any FireWire equipped computer.
Soft Limit is an analog peak limiter that instantaneously and gracefully controls transient peaks, thereby allowing an additional 4-6 dB of headroom. Short of purchasing a very expensive stand-alone compressor/limiter, there is currently no product on the market that handles this process better than
UV22HR is Apogee s industry standard technology for reducing the word-length of a high-resolution digital signal to 16 bits. UV22HR is also being employed to produce dramatically improved internet and computer audio content without increased file sizes or data rates. It is estimated that 8 out of 10 hit records are mastered using Apogee's UV22HR technology.
