Featuring dual channel capability with 24-bit conversion and up to 96KHz sample rates, the CDA 5320 is a compact and cost effective way to convert 2 stereo analog pairs into digital AES/EBU audio signals. Designed for professional and broadcast applications demanding the highest levels of quality.

Selectable sample rates (32,44.1,48 and 96KHz) with adjustable gain and an integrated tone generator provides maximum flexibility for interfacing between analog and digital audio equipment. Two connection panel configurations provides choices for system connectivity.

Microprocessor control and on board flash ram enable configurations and settings to be stored within the module (through power cycles and module removal). Local control capability is provided via the integrated matrix display and multifunction switch. Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the APPolo control system.
