moosers's review (Apogee - DA-16X)

By moosers, 17/03/2009
The Apogee Electronics DA-16X is a digital to analog converter. It has 16 outputs in both AES and ADAT optical form as well as a world clock input and output. The digital to analog converters are clean and this unit is overall a great complement to the Apogee Electronics AD-16X analog to digital converter. In the studio that I use this in, this and the AD-16X are synced up with the Apogee Big Ben. All three of the Apogees are linked to a Digidesign 192 I/O audio interface to run Pro Tools HD. The Apogee DA-16X and its counterparts are a great complete to a Pro Tools system, or on their own as they are great converters.


I've been using the Apogee Electronics DA-16X digital to audio converter for about a year and I've been very pleased with the results I get. Having this linked up with the AD-16X and the Big Ben make for a high number of channels that will come in crystal clear. These converters are much cleaner than Digidesigns, which make them a great complement to the Pro Tools HD system. While there are a bunch of great high quality converters out there, Apogee has a great reputation for making some of the best on the market. Since I'm not a huge fan of the Digidesign converters, having the Apogee DA-16X has become a must have as I love having this set of high quality converters. While this might not be a be must have for home studio owners, for professionals who want the best possible recording chain they can get, this is a great option. The main reason it isn't all that suitable for home studio owners, is that it is quite expensive, and if you get the DA-16X, you almost need to have the DA-16X and the Big Ben. However, this being said the Apogee Electronics DA-16X is a great digital to analog converter.

Built Like a Tank (Aviom - AN-16/i)

By stompboxjon, 04/11/2012
The Aviom AN-16/I Input Module is a 16 channel digital module that cost 1100 dollars online. It has 16 balanced ¼ TRS inputs and 16 balanced thru connectors. It can be racked and only takes up one rack space. We have not been using this unit long but in our time with it so far we have been very satisfied. It is easy to set up and understand. It comes with a manual that will explain everything to you if you need it and you can even go on the website and check out some of the beginners’ personal mixing system videos and tutorials/help videos. I have used many Aviom modules and mixers in the past and the quality of them is what inspired use to get the Aviom AN-16/I Input Module.


The value for the price is respectable; though I do wish it was a little cheaper it still is worth every penny of what it cost. It is well made and built like a tank. It will last you a long time and I am looking forward to using it a lot of over the years to come because I know it will last well over that time. Knowing what I know now I should have got the Aviom AN-16/I Input Module when it first came out because I could have got rid of another module that I was using at the time that was not working to well for us. If you are in need of a module that can convert your analog audio signals and channels in to a uncompressed digital signal then you have come to the right place. Let the Aviom AN-16/I Input Module hand le it all for it. It is affordable and works like a charm. This unit should last use a long time and save us money in the future from having to upgrade because it has enough channels for us.
