Digital Audio Denmark Launch Axion. A state-of-the-art Multi-channel PCM/DSD/DXD Converter
Digital Audio Denmark (DAD) has launched the new audio converter Axion, thereby expanding the current product range of high-end AD/DA/DD PCM converters. Axion provides capability for sampling in the new high definition formats DSD and DXD for compliance with the Super Audio CD (SACD) format.
Axion is a combined PCM/DSD/DXD Multi-channel Converter having an 8 channel integrated AD-DA interface offering the latest in chip- and digital signal processing technology. "We would describe Axion as the most advanced and sonically pure converter ever developed when aiming for higher sample-rates than 96 kHz", says Peter Scheelke, Product and sales manager at DAD.
The sample rate capability of this unit allows for 44.1kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz, 192 kHz, DSD 1-bit 64fs, DSD 1-bit 128fs and even supports the new Philips DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) 24 bit, 352.8 kHz format for SACD production.
Axion is controlled via the DADman remote control program for PC via a simple RS-422 link. By the use of conventional adapters, the interface can also be USB or RS-232.
The clever modular design of the Axion offers 8 channels of A to D with the option of inserting up to two 4 channel D to A card resulting in the most cost-effective means of achieving 8 channels of AD-DA in 1-bit DSD. A range of audio interfaces for external equipment are available including the current DADIO modules as well as MADI and SDIF3.
Users of Merging Technologies DAW Pyramix using DSD, will benefit from the additional MADI interface capabilities, offering 8 channels of DSD/DXD in a single MADI link and allowing two units to be synchronised using a second MADI link for the Pyramix 16 channel DSD system.
