Solid State Logic Alpha Link MX AD/DA Converter Details

The Solid State Logic Alpha-Link MX is the first of a new generation of SSL A-D/D-A converters that deliver superb audio quality and outstanding value. Building on the reputation of the Alpha-Link SX and AX models the new MX range consists of two 1 U units that can be used individually or combined to create larger systems. Each unit features Fibre Optic MADI In/Out connections which can be used to connect to SSL's own MadiXtreme, MX4 or Delta-Link computer interfaces or to cascade multiple MX units. The Alpha-Link MX 16-4 has 16 analogue inputs and 4 analogue outputs, making it an ideal 16 channel capture device with 4 outputs for artist and studio monitoring. The Alpha-Link MX 4-16 has 4 analogue inputs and 16 analogue outputs, making it an ideal solution for 16 channel analogue summing with 4 channels of audio capture. Up to four MX units can be cascaded in any combination in a daisy chain. In this way systems with up to 80 analogue connections can be created. MX units have a switchable reference level to enable matching with the rest of your studio system, with front panel selection of a range of settings between +24dB and +14dB.

What We Think - Solid State Logic Alpha-Link MX 16-4 Review

"The new pair of Solid State Logic XLogic Alpha Link MX AD/DA Converters offers a new flexibility to accommodate those who either only need (or want) 16 channels of AD and 4 channels of DA (the 16-4 unit is great for tracking full bands and offering the ability to mix in the box and have a spare pair of outputs for separate monitor mixes), or exactly the opposite setup (the 4-16 is ideal for desktop musicians who are primarily only tracking 1 to 4 channels at a time, but who want to incorporate a mixing desk or summing amps to their mix suite). But finally, you can marry one of each MX together with a MadiXtreme 64, MadiXtreme 128, MX4, or even an RME MADIFace for 24-24 AD/DA; effectively building a AlphaLink MADI AX or MADI SX basically their equivalent of one half at a time. Front End Audio knows SSL and we have installed both the Solid State Logic AlphaLink MADI AX and MadiXtreme 64 cards as the heart of our studio. Give us a call if you're looking for a great way to get going with a low latency, high-channel-count, hi-resolution system. Our experience and in house custom computer shop, Audeum, can help get you going, headache-free."
