JCF Audio DA8T

Please note: The PEP option is an additional cost


About this item



The JCF Audio DA8-T is an High-Resolution 8 channel Digital to Analog converter that can, as an option, use PEP.

The unit receives the industry standard AES/EBU protocol on four XLR connectors. The AES/EBU inputs operate in single-wire mode exclusively at all sampling frequencies. The DA8-T can derive its sync source from an incoming bi-phase stream on XLR, a Word clock, or an incoming
Optical input.

The DA8-T has eight analog outputs that are floating and <50 ohms. Pin 1 of all of the XLR’s on the unit are internally tied to circuit common. This should be kept in mind wiring systems together. The transformer coupled outputs can easily be interfaced with virtually any studio interconnection scheme while providing isolation and superb common-mode rejection figures essential for studio environments. The device is pin 2 positive for the analog outputs. The XLR inputs are 110 ohm floating inputs and do not have preferred polarity.
