  • The DA824 can operate in conjunction with other digital audio equipment or as a stand-alone converter. A Mini-YGDAI card slot allows it to connect to digital mixing engines, digital mixing consoles, or digital MTRs, providing a high quality back end for analog audio output. A connection can be made between the DA824 and another device by using any digital MY series card (AES/EBU, TASCAM, ADAT) in the DA824 to the same format on the sending device. For example, to connect the DA824 to the DME32, use an MY8-AE in the DA824 and another MY8-AE in the DME32 unit. The two units connect via an AES/EBU cable.

    Using a combination of remote AD824s and DA824s, one can place inputs and outputs throughout a facility as needed. By remoting the I/O, the signal can be kept in the digital realm where long transmission lines (up to 200 meters with an AES/EBU interface) are required. This keeps the sound quality pristine by preventing possible interference from RF or other factors that degrade analog signals.
