Analog to Digital Audio Format Converter
The 6402N from Kramer is a high-performance format converter for balanced audio signals. This unit works by converting two channels of balanced audio signalts to AES/EBU, AES-3id, S/PDIF and TOSLINK optical digital outputs simultaneously. Primarily you will find the type of digital audio format converter in audio broadcast & production studios or non-linear editing studios, but is also a great addition to any multimedia & presentation format conversion situation or in diagnostics of audio equipment during field operation.
The main features of the 6402N format converter are: selectable sampling frequencies of 32k, 44.1k, 48k, or 96k, and selectable gain ratio (A/D) settings -12dB, -16dB, -20dB, or -24dB to 0dBG's. With its analog balanced stereo audio input signal, it splits to four digital audio output signals (thus functioning as a 1x4 Distribution Amp), available in all the possible digital audio interfaces. It also has the ability for selectable digital audio system bits (professional or consumer), and has AES/EBU and AES-ID3 transformer coupled outputs.
This format converter comes with its own 12V DC power adapter, and mounting brackets and is backed by a 7 year warranty from Kramer. With its compact DigiTOOLS size 3 units can be rack mounted side-by-side in a 1U rack space using the optional Kramer RK-3T rack adapter.
