RDL AV INTERFACES - HALF-RACK Series

RDL's HR series are 'Half-Rack' Series products with an 'all-metal chassis' which may be used free-standing, using the feet supplied. Each unit may be labelled by removing an end cap and sliding out a clear plastic cover, which can be slid back in to cover user’s labelling, much in the manner of standard designation strips. Two units may be mounted side-by-side in an optional 1U 19-inch rack adapter.

A to D AND D to A CONVERTERS

These convert balanced and unbalanced analogue line-level inputs and outputs to and from standard digital audio signals operating at up to 24-bit resolution and 192kHz sampling.

HR-ADC1 - Analogue to Digital

This has a choice of balanced and unbalanced stereo audio line-level inputs which is then converted to either AES/EBU, coaxial S/PDIF or AES-3ID digital signals. Operating at up to 24-bits resolution and 192kHz sampling, either internally-generated or locked to an external source of sync, the HR-ADC1 offers 'superior analogue performance', 'very low distortion', 'exceedingly low noise' and 'remarkably flat frequency response'

The front panel has two rotary controls to set the audio input levels and an array of LEDs for monitoring level. Two rows of twelve LEDs indicate left and right peak or VU average audio levels. The 0dB reference level of the meters may be set to -14, -16, -18 or -20dBFS. Audio peaks between -10dBFS and 0dBFS clipping are displayed separately by two further rows of six LEDs to the right, which are also used as menu LEDs when programming the settings with two adjacent push buttons. The peak display may be set to either flash or store the peak values. Flash duration settings provide for instantaneous, 1/3 second hold or 2/3 second hold. If the peak display is set to 'store' then the highest peak recorded remains displayed until the 'peak reset' button is pushed. A column of six LEDs indicate the internal sample rate; three more the resolution in bits. These are set by two dedicated push buttons. Another button, with associated LED, enables external sync, with another LED indicating 'external sync lock'. A final button switches power, and is equipped with an LED indicator.

The rear offers three connectors each for left and right audio inputs. RCA (phono) sockets provide unbalanced connections whilst either 3-pole female XLR connectors or detachable terminal block connectors may be used for the balanced inputs, which may be wired unbalanced. The digital audio output has three connectors; a 3-pole male XLR provides the balanced AES/EBU output, RCA (phono) and BNC connectors provide the S/PDIF and AES3ID outputs respectively. A switch selects which is used. A similar array of three connectors provides the external sync input, with a female XLR used for the AES/EBU balanced input. The connector used is selected automatically. Both a co-axial connector and a detachable terminal block are provided for connecting power.
