ADC16 A/D Converter, 16-Channel description:

The Benchmark Media ADC16 A/D Converter, 16-Channel 24-bit 192kHz A/D Audio Converter that preserves the clarity of the signal source so that you can simply focus on the music.

The ADC16 from Benchmark Media features 16-channels of transformer-less balanced analogue inputs. The analogue front-end continues Benchmark’s tradition of exceptionally pristine, award-winning analogue circuitry.

Each channel of analogue input has a gain control (via a trim-pot) that has a 20 dB range. At 0 dB of gain, it can accept 28 dBu at the input without clipping. At max-gain, an 8 dB input-signal will drive the converters to full-scale.

The ADC16 features very flexible I/O routing solutions. The control panel allows the user to dictate the source (A/D or DAW) for each of the AES, coaxial, and optical digital outputs. This is very useful when the ADC16 is used in a studio with an analogue console. The digital audio from the A/D chips can be sent directly to the digital outputs to a multichannel D/A to feed the console – completely bypassing the DAW. This reduces latency and DAW artefacts in real-time monitoring.

The Benchmark Media ADC16 Main Features Include:

  • Two DB25 connectors for transformerless balanced analog input
  • 16 channels of analog-to-digital conversion
  • Input gain trimpots for each channel provide high-performance over 20 dB range
  • +8 dBu to +28 dBu input sensitivity range (at 0 dBFS)
  • Benchmark’s 9-segment dual-range digital LED meters with ‘peak-hold’
  • Conversion at standard sample-rates (44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, and 192 kHz) and will also lock to non-standard rates (anything between 28 kHz and 200 kHz)
  • Multifunction clock input with autorecognition of AES, SPDIF, Word Clock, or Super Clock
  • Word Clock output
  • Total jitter-immunity with Benchmark’s, phase-accurate UltraLockDDS™ technology
  • Three sets of digital outputs (Balanced AES, coax, optical)
  • Independently controlled sourcing (A/D or DAW) for each set of digital outputs
  • AES/EBU, ADAT, and ADAT S/MUX2, and ADAT S/MUX4 optical output formats
  • THD+N = -104 dB, 0.00063% @ -3 dBFS input, SNR 121 dB A-weighted
  • Reliable and consistent performance under all operating conditions
  • Internal 90-264 VAC, 47-63 Hz international power supply with very wide operating range
  • Meets FCC Class B and CE emissions requirements
