With a device as powerful as the ADI-8 DD,
it is for sure sometimes difficult to find out what's going on, or can be
done with it. The device is capable of 34 different format conversions -
which nobody can remember. And how are they set up? What can the user do
The three inputs AES, ADAT and TDIF are shown
on the left side. Using one source switch each, both the left and the right
part can access the inputs independently. The output of the left part is
connected to TDIF, and basically also to the ADAT output. The output of
the right part is connected to the AES output. This is the obvious design
and functionality of the device, as can be learned from the front panel
and the rear (connectors.) The two converter units of the ADI-8 DD operate
independently from each other, no matter which of the three inputs they
use, sending a signal to their hard-wired outputs.
*The AES output 1/2 is sent to the second ADAT output AUX.
