SPL launches MADI interface and USB controller/interface

At Musikmesse /Prolight + Sound 2013 in Frankfurt SPL launched its Madison 16+16 Channel Studio I/O System and Crimson USB Audio Interface and Controller. Both interfaces feature SPL's sought-after analogue sound and offer cost effective solutions for a range of recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement applications. Shipping should start in June or July 2013..
SPL CrimsonDesigned to provide a professional recording setup when connected to a DAW, Crimson combines a USB interface with high-quality pre-amps and a separate, fully-featured monitor controller in a portable package. Play, playback, record, convert, control, and listen with a single device.
SPL redesigned its tried-and-tested circuitries, creating a new, fully-integrated design. The 24-bit/192kHz-capable Crimson provides 30 I/O channels (10 recording and 20 playback); professional levels up to +24dB; two discrete Class A microphone pre-amplifiers; two Hi-Z instrument pre-amps; two individually controllable headphone amps; dual stereo speaker set connections and control; monitor signal mix function from playback and recording paths; MIDI input and output; USB 2.0, S/PDIF input and output.
Broadcast and sound reinforcement professionals have relied on the Multichannel Audio Digital Interface (MADI) for over 20 years, thanks to its jitter-free and reliable transmission of multiple audio channels per single wire. With MADI emerging as the new studio I/O standard, the Madison 16+16 Channel Studio I/O System is suitable to integrate into any home, project, or commercial studio or scoring stage by combining conversion, reliable clock, and MADI processing with a simple-to-operate, easy-to-expand system housed in a compact 1U rack-mountable unit offering 16 input and 16 output channels.
Madison makes integrating professional analogue equipment into larger multichannel infrastructures a breeze, bringing the analogue SPL sound to MADI-equipped digital consoles, audio routers, or PC MADI cards for the first time. Its MADI port offers pristine and near-zero-latency digital transmission of up to 64 inputs and outputs with galvanic insulation (via four units connected on a single MADI port) making Madison the ideal front end for anyone serious about pure conversion of multiple audio channels.
Special features found in Madison include 16 high-quality AD and DA convertors with an 18V analogue section (36V audio rail for +24dBu professional level); 44.1 to 192kHz operation (with ±10% varispeed); SPL clock-shop for jitter-free operation; compatible, always-operational MADI I/O; four directly-selectable reference levels (15/18/22/24); simple operation and setup directly from front panel controls; ergonomic, distance-readable meters for clear level status indication of any I/O channel; fan-less, silent lower-power design (30W max); redundant power supply (optional); and four industry-standard (TASCAM) D-Sub analogue eight-channel multicores.
