ADC-1 Installation and Operation Manual

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The ADC-1 provides professional quality 24-bit A/D conversion. The A/D converter may be configured for sample rates of 44.1 or 48kHz (32kHz may be special ordered) or an external word clock from 32 to 96kHz. Additional features include; balanced stereo analog input and AES output via plug-in euroblock connectors. The front panel is equipped with a sample rate switch and led indicators, left and right analog input trimmers, dual 10-LED input meters and power LED indicator. The ADC-1 is powered by a surge protected internal bi-polar 15-vdc power supply affording superior headroom and high definition audio. The ADC-1 may be set on a desktop, mounted on a wall or up to three units may be mounted on the optional RA-1, Rack-Able mounting shelf.

ADC-1 Installation and Operation Manual

INSTALLATION

Please examine your ADC-1 carefully for any damage that may have been sustained during shipping. If any is noted, please notify the shipper immediately and retain the packaging for inspection by the shipper. The package contains the ADC-

1, 16 VAC @ 600 ma wall power transformer and this manual.

Installation of the ADC-1 in high RF environments should be performed with care. Shielded cable is suggested for all audio connections. All shields should be tied to the “G” Ground terminals. The station ground should be connected to the chassis ground screw located on the far right side of the ADC-1 as viewed from the rear. It is recommended that all cables connected to the ADC-1 be looped through ferrite cores to suppress RF. Surge protection with RF filtering such as the Tripp-

Lite “ISOBAR 4 or 6” is also suggested for the wall transformer.

To gain access to the ADC-1 components, remove power and the top cover allen screw. When the configuration is completed, reinstall the cover, screw and power.

L/R Analog Inputs

AES Output

Word clock input

Hi Z, active balanced. Connect your source equipment to the left/right input - and + terminals on the plug-in euroblock connector. For monaural sources, tie the left and right inputs together, be sure to observe correct phasing. NOTE: If the source feeding the

ADC-1is unbalanced, install a jumper between Lt- or

Rt- terminal and GND.

Connect this plug-in euroblock connector to the AES input on your equipment.

Balanced word clock input. Accepts all standard digital audio sample rates from 32 to 96kHz. Must be configured to activate this input.

Front panel switch IN: 44.1 kHz sample rate.

OUT: 48 kHz sample rate.

“Setup” jumper settings JP-1 ON: Internal (factory default).

OFF: External Clock

JP-2 ON: External clock, 59 to 96kHz

(factory default).

OFF: External clock, 30 to 59kHz.
