We always quote 'real world' performance figures (measured to the AES17 standard). Some companies choose to quote chipset performance, which is misleading.
Output formats (All channels)
• AES/EBU (5V / 110 ohms), S/PDIF (0.8V / 75 ohms)
• ADAT lightpipe (SMUX I/II/IV, channels 1-4 only in 176.4kHz, 192kHz mode)
• S/PDIF lightpipe (channels 1-4 only; mutually exclusive with ADAT lightpipe)
24 bits, internally configurable to 16 or 20 bits if necessary.
AES3 output jitter
All ranges: 20Hz–20kHz ± 0.3dB (100Hz–20kHz ± 0.1dB)
176.4kHz, 192kHz : 17Hz–90kHz ± 0.5dB
–121.5dB A-weighted, audio band-limited, 1kHz, -60dB FS input
Maximum 0.0033% at –1dB FS (1kHz)
Minimum 0.0008% at –15dB FS (1kHz)
Idle channel noise
117.5dB at 44.1kHz, CCIR-weighted, full bandwidth
–100dB at 12kHz
–95dB at 20kHz
