M-Audio is now shipping the new FireWire Audiophile interface for Windows and Macintosh computers. The FireWire Audiophile unites new technology with features from the company's FireWire 410, Audiophile USB and Audiophile 2496 interfaces.

The FireWire Audiophile is a 4x6 24-bit/96kHz mobile audio/MIDI interface designed to take full advantage of the high bandwidth, ultralow latency and dependability of today’s FireWire (IEEE 1394) protocol. Compact design, rugged steel construction and powering via either a laptop’s 6-pin FireWire bus or the included DC power supply make it ideal for DJs, live performers, and desktop or laptop recording setups.

FireWire Audiophile features two analog RCA inputs and four analog RCA outputs. Coaxial digital S/PDIF I/O supports 2-channel PCM, as well as AC-3 and DTS passthrough of surround-encoded material. The integrated software mixer provides ultralow-latency ASIO direct monitoring and flexible routing options. The combination of virtual aux sends on all channels and aux output assign, for example, allows for dedicated headphone mixes and sends to external effects. High-powered stereo headphone output with front panel momentary A/B switching between two selectable sources for cueing make it ideal for club and stage work. In addition to independent headphone volume, the assignable level controller allows users to adjust levels for output, input, software return or aux send right from the front panel. The 1x1 MIDI I/O completes the unit’s functionality as a one-stop interface for computer-based musicians.

FireWire Audiophile is now shipping at an MSRP of $349.95. For more information, click here.
