Exceptional Audio Quality and Conversion

The Eclipse 384 provides you with superb audio quality and conversion settings resulting in a natural-sounding analog-based conversion. The innovative dual-domain clock system facilitates the sample rate conversion with integral patching and routing capabilities, resulting in transparent monitoring of both analog and digital sources. The Eclipse 384 with dramatically lower your noise floor and enable you to minimise any distortion, jitter and eliminate cable noise resulting in exceptional sonic qualities and performance.

Live And Studio Applications

Primarily designed for studio use, the Eclipse 384 is also ideal for live applications with the master clock allowing you to use the converter with other digital consoles and external devices. This innovative design means you can generate sync references for up to four separate devices for maximum versatility over your connected devices. The D/A can be use for backing material such as instrumental tracks while the A/D feeds redundant recording system and monitor DAC checks the recording post A/D conversion. This is ideal for live use, perfect for use at concerts and live events.

64-Bit DSP Trinity-Level Clocks

One of the most unique features of this AD/DA converter is the 64-bit DSP trinity-level clocks. The 384kHz A/D & D/A converters both feature two independent 64-bit DSP trinity-level clocks which helps to deliver a more natural sounding sample rate conversion. The integrated monitor controllers delivers 0.05dB gold-plated relay attenuators, providing speaker switching, bass management and cue mix controls with an integrated talkback function. Additionally there is two dedicated headphone amplifier with a custom USB interface, plus two large peak meters on the front panel for monitoring purposes. The software control panel that comes included allows you to set up to five nameable presets, giving you the option to recall your favourite setups and settings.
