At the recent NSCA Expo 2004, Yamaha debuted the AD8HR AD Converter. The 8-channel AD8HR provides head amplifier circuitry inherited from the acclaimed Yamaha PM5000 analog mixing console and supports sampling rates of up to 96kHz for smooth integration with digital mixers.

The 1RU AD8HR contains a full range of analog and digital interfaces, plus all the functions required for effective and flexible live mixing. The front panel provides quick operation and instant recognition in live situations, while each channel contains integrated highpass filters and phantom power supplies.

With the Head Amp Remote Control function, channel phantom power and highpass filter cut-off frequencies may be switched on and off by remote control, making it possible for the AD8HR to be used as a stage box. This function also allows the unit’s mic preamp to be remotely controlled in 1dB steps from digital mixing consoles (such as the Yamaha DM2000 and DM1000, with software upgrades to Version 2). Up to 255 AD8HRs can be daisy-chained together using a standard 9-pin RS422 and a digital connection via AES/EBU.

Rear panel connections include eight XLR inputs, BNC-type input/output connectors for Word Clock and two D-SUB25 pin AES/EBU digital output terminals. Remote control can be accessed by using a switchable PC/RS422 9-pin terminal. MSRP: $2,200.
