The DirectOut Technologies ANDIAMO 2.XT SC/SC provides two MADI inputs and outputs, 16 AES inputs and outputs and 32 channels analog inputs and out-puts.
ANDIAMO 2.XT is an AES/MADI AD/DA converter with superior sound quality. Based on the unique ANDIAMO 2 a higher level of integration and flexibility is achieved by adding digital AES inputs and outputs (AES3).
The SRC version ANDIAMO 2.XT SRC is equipped additionally with sample rate converters at the AES inputs. The SRCs are switchable in groups of eight channels and may help in situations where asynchronous signals demand for flexibility.
The front panel provides status LEDs for all channels for a quick check of signal status (signal present, over, sync state) of all input and output channels.
A routing matrix enables audio conversion from any input port to any output port (e.g. analog MADI and MADI AES) at the same time.
Two units may be cascaded, extending the number of channels for conversion up to 128. Via Bank Selection the desired part of the MADI stream (ch 01-32 or ch 33-64) can be selected.
Individual Routing & Remote Operation
A Matrix Mode offers free signal routing on a per channel basis. The routing matrix is accessed via the ANDIAMO remote software. There are different methods available for remote connection:
- Serial control via USB
- Serial over MADI (embedded RS-232 data)
- MIDI over MADI (embedded MIDI data)
ANDIAMO 2.XT can be clocked by word clock, MADI input, AES input or internally. The system clock is provided at the word clock output at any time.
ANDIAMO 2.XT offers highest reliability through two phase redundant power supplies with inlets and switches on the rear panel.
ANDIAMO 2.XT is equiped with two MADI ports and provides port redundancy and increased flexibility.
The sensitivity of the converter may be switched between two levels (hi / lo) - discrete for A/D and D/A. Select one of three different versions when ordering ("configure to order"):
- Version "A": +06 dBu / +15 dBu
- Version "B": +09 dBu / +18 dBu
- Version "C": +15 dBu / +24 dBu
ANDIAMO 2.XT (SRC) can be used for conversion, monitoring, recording and routing of analog and digital signals.
Typical applications include:
monitoring digital audio
recording line signals
redundant recording using both MADI I/Os
signal routing / distribution (128 x 128 cross points)
conversion from / to AES to / from MADI
integration of asynchronous AES signals [SRC Version]
mixed conversion of AES and analog signals to MADI
format conversion of MADI signals
