Millennia AD-596 500-Series HV-3 A/D Converter Module

Millennia AD-596 500-Series HV-3 A/D Converter Module

Millennia AD-596 500-Series HV-3 A/D Converter Module Details

The Millennia AD-596 500-Series HV-3 A/D Converter Module is a 500-Series powered 8-channel AD converter offering what Millennia refers to as "Authentic Transparency for Unrestricted Creativity". Indeed.

Designed as an external AD conversion expansion for the Millennia Media HV-3D and HV-3R 8-channel preamps, the AD-596 is an alternative for the Millennia Media AD-D96 internal AD converter card option for the 8-channel HV-3 preamps. The AD-596 is the perfect choice when using an HV-3 unit that already has an HDOE or HROE Output Expansion card installed.

Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge

"" Static electricity can harm delicate components on the AD-596 board. To prevent static damage, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any jumpers or switches with the cover removed. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal surface on the API rack"?s chassis.

Compatible Racks

"" The AD-596 is designed to work in an API 500VPR or Lunch box rack. If you are using another brand, be sure it meets or exceeds the API spec.

The AD-596 power consumption is: +130mA,""40mA

Clocks

"" The AD-596 should have only one clock source. If running with the internal clock, make sure SW2 is in the INT (default) position and no external clock is connected.

Sync Signals on the BNC connectors should conform to the AES-3id specification. AES-3, through an XLR-to-BNC transformer (Neutrik NADITBNC-F or equivalent) will work fine. S/PDIF may work, but is not specified.

Sync signals can be either AES or Word Clock (jumper selectable). AES sync should conform to the above specs. Output sample rate will match the sample rate of the applied external reference sync. The range is:

32KHz ± 1%

44.1KHz -1% to 48KHz +1%

88.2KHz -1% to 96KHz +1%

Millennia Media AD-596 REVIEWS - What People Are Saying:

"Frankly, the whole experience was pretty boring: The AD-596 was easy to hook up, worked without having to do anything other than make connections, sounded wonderful, and yes, it fits in a standard 500-series frame. The only real excitement comes from watching the peak indicator LEDs for the eight channels to see if they indicate clipping, and the fact that you can set the LEDs for peak hold as well as clear them""good for on-location recordings if you want to know whether there was an over when you weren"?t looking. Another cool feature is what Millennia calls True-Lock-Clock, which basically means if the external clock goes away, the AD-596 switches over to its internal clock."

"I"?m pretty sure this is the only digital 500-series device, but it demonstrates the depth of the spec. Think about it: when used in conjunction with a frame like the Workhorse, you could have seven mic pres, send their outs through a DB-25 cable into the AD-596, then patch the AD-596 output into your recording device of choice . . compact, portable, and comparatively speaking, inexpensive."

Craig Anderton, Electronic Musician

"I have been using the Millennia AD-D96 analog to digital converter in our HV-3D and really love the sound.

"When it came time to expand our in-house recording facility, I was looking for high quality A to Ds in a compact, modular package. When I heard about the 500 series AD-596 project, it was clear that we finally had a solution.

"The AD-596 not only duplicates the excellent performance of the AD-D96, it also allows us to simultaneously have an easily reconfigurable, mobile system with far greater flexibility than one box, rack secured options.

"Additionally, the per channel cost of this new high quality conversion is unmatched!!!"

Jack Vad, award winning producer/engineer for the San Francisco Symphony recently upgraded his recording/broadcast chain at Davies Symphony Hall.
