Ultra Stereo Labs introduces
the new DAX-16N, a digital to analog audio convertor with a BLU link interface.
The BLU link interface is now approved by Harman International Industries and
is compatible with Dolby Atmos®. The DAX- 16N will be on display, along with
many other USL cinema products, at the ShowEast convention, October 27-30, at
the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida.
The DAX-16 converts digital audio to analog for standard
cinema amplifiers and is ideal for a cinema auditorium with behind-the-screen
amps, often used in boothless cinemas.
Features include remote monitoring of the outputs and amplifier returns
with streaming audio on a web browser. Remote
bar graphs display the output levels and amplifier returns for all channels. The
GUI configuration can route any input to any output and the levels are fully
adjustable. The outputs are on DE-15F (HD-15) connectors and drive the
amplifiers directly. Configuration data can be saved to an SD card for
portability and back-up. The front panel also has “signal present” LEDs on all
The DAX-16 is available in two versions. The DAX-16N accepts
digital audio from a BLU link source such as the Dolby® CP850. The DAX-16S
accepts AES/EBU digital audio (16 channels on two RJ45 connectors).
“The new DAX-16 fills out our D to A convertor product line.
The series includes the DAX-202, DAX-602 and the DAX-802. Along with these
three D to A convertors, all three of the JSD series audio processors have full
D to A functionality,” stated Tom Atkison, USL’s Production Manager. “The
inclusion of the new DAX-16 brings our D to A product line up to six different
versions, giving our cinema customers a wide selection to choose from.”
