Apogee Electronics Corporation unveiled its new X Series converters, the AD-16X (pictured) and DA-16X, which offer standard sampling rates up to 192 kHz, premium Apogee conversion, option cards that connect both units directly to Pro Tools|HD and FireWire devices and the C777 clocking technology found in the Big Ben master clock.

The AD-16X and DA-16X offer Apogee's SoftLimit and UV22HR, in addition to the C777 clocking technology, which uses an al-digital process to stable clock signals that results in undetectable jitter and an enhancement to the sound quality. Also new to the X Series units is Apogee's redesigned power supply scheme. The new power system of the AD-16X and DA-16X incorporates a specially design Synchronous Switching power supply that works in conjunction with the C777 clock and Apogee's filtering technology to provide superior transient response, low heat and noise performance.

Features of the AD-16X include16 channels of 24-bit A/D conversion; AES, ADAT/SMUX Output; word clock I/O; compatibility with the X-FireWire and X-HD Expansion cards; and an optional Pro Tools|HD expansion card. The DA-16X offers these features, but adds an optional S800 FireWire expansion card.

Both products are expected to be available in March 2004.
