(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Synchronisation Options

SDI-MADI takes up to 16 audio channels from each of the unit's four SDI inputs to provide a total of up to 64 audio channels in both MADI and AES3 formats. All of the SDI inputs independently auto-sense between 3G, HD and SD standards and are given with loop-through connectivity for downstream equipment. With an advanced range of synchronising options and switchable sample rate converters, the SDI-MADI is built to reliably and seamlessly integrate into any broadcast environment where SDI-embedded audio channels need format conversion.

Support for Switchable Sample Rate Converters

The SDI-MADI supports several options for syncing, including Wordclock, Black & Burst, AES and SDI 1 - 4. The device also supports switchable sample rate converters. The SDI-MADI has Full Dolby E/Dolby transparency for the loop-through process. For extra convenience, the device is loaded with front panel LED status indicators for PSU, SYNC, SRC and SDI Lock. The SDI-MADI has multiple syncing options and switchable converters, making it a must-have for broadcast studios where SDI-embedded audio channels need format conversion. It also supports an optional 19" AES Signal Breakout panel and is rack mountable in a 19" 1U rack space.
