Henry Engineering has released its new AES Digital DA 2X4, a zero-delay distribution system for digital audio signals. The AES DA accepts either an AES or S/PDIF digital audio signal and creates
four identical AES output “clones.”
Henry says the AES DA is 100-percent bit-accurate and transparent to the source, adding absolutely no delay or latency to the signal. All AES I/O is transformer-isolated to prevent ground loops and noise. S/PDIF inputs are converted to the AES standard; a blue “Signal” LED confirms the presence of an AES output signal.
The AES DA is powered with a built-in linear power supply; no wall-warts are needed. The unit is 1/3 rack wide, and can be rackmounted using the optional Henry Engineering Rack Shelf.
