The SPL Madison offers the pure SPL analog sound for every MADI equipped digital console, audio router and PC MADI card.
With 16 input and 16 output channels in a single rack space, the Madison combines state of the art signal conversion with highly reliable clock and MADI processing. And as a true SPL unit it is simple to operate, easy to expand and, of course, an awesome sounding conversion system.
Broadcast and live professionals rely on the still-unsurpassed MADI since about 20 years now - with jitter-free, rock-solid transmission of many audio channels per single wire and low-cost cabling with lengths far above one mile, MADI simply offers unique advantages.
As a company with a rich heritage in analog audio engineering, it has always been our idea to put all our knowledge into the analog sections of a converter. Excellent converter technology requires an appropriate analog environment, and that is where a true difference can be made - a difference against existing solutions, and a difference in sound of course.
We have designed an analog audio section on 36V audio rails, reaching output levels of 24dBu. The result is simply amazing. With its straight-forward operation, flexible expansion, and pristine sound, the price per channel ratio of the Madison may set a new benchmark.
And for the first time, SPL's analog sound is coming to digital environments.
A good fit everywhere
Thanks to its rich I/O equipment, the Madison makes it a breeze to integrate professional analog gear into larger multichannel infrastructures. With four popular reference levels, operational sample rates between 44.1 and 192kHz, multicore analog I/O, fibre MADI I/O and word clock I/O, the Madison simply fits everywhere.
Up to four units can be connected to a single MADI port on a digital console, a MADI PC card, or any professional audio routing infrastructure. The MADI port offers excellent and near-zero-latency digital transmission of up to 64 I/Os with galvanic insulation. And since MADI is the emerging new studio I/O standard, the Madison is the perfect interface for home and project studios, commercial recording studios and scoring stages.
So whereever you may have a need for reliable and pure conversion of multiple analog audio channels, the Madison meets your demand brilliantly.
