Avid Hd I/O Digital & Analogue???

Hi,

Sorry for my ignorance here but i never got my head around the avid Digital and Analogue interfaces. What is the difference hence the digital interface is much cheaper. The digital interace still have AES and adat. Would really appreciate anyone to clarify this.

Thanks in advance / CHristian

The digital interface has no AD or DA conversion - it just provides a way to connect other converters to PT. Yes the digital interfaces still have adat/AES. they DON'T have the analogue part!

Look on the avid site, the spec is pretty clear...

They actually have three...the digital model has 16 channels of digital I/O in a variety of formats (ADAT, AES and TDIF), the analog model has 16 channels of analog I/O and no digital (aside from two channels of AES or S/PDIF, which all of the interfaces have...but that takes away two channels of analog) and the "regular" model has eight channels of each.

And you can mix and match 8 ADDA analogue and 8 digital together.
