Missed Deliveries

If you are not in to receive the order at the time delivery is attempted, a card will normally be left to notify you of the missed delivery attempt. This will allow you to either telephone the courier company to arrange a re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it from your local courier depot or Royal Mail sorting office. For security reasons, all items require a signature.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, multiple failed delivery attempts), then we will inform you immediately by email as soon as we receive the item. From this point forth, you will be given a choice whether you wish us to re-dispatch the item or cancel the order. Please refer to our Cancellations & 14 Day Returns Procedure for more details. For items where delivery failed through no fault of Synthax Audio (UK), you will be liable for the original shipping charge, any courier surcharges and any subsequent delivery charges.

Late Deliveries or Dispatch

We are able to ship almost every order in the specified timescale. However, in very rare circumstances there can be an unforeseen delay. If this does happen, we will make it our priority to get your order dispatched from our warehouse as soon as reasonably possible.

There are also rare cases, beyond our control, when the delivery company itself has a problem which causes a delay in transit. In these situations we will do our utmost to liaise with the relevant delivery company to ensure delivery is completed as swiftly as possible.

Consequential Loss for Late Deliveries

If a delivery is late, then we will provide a refund of any delivery fee that we charged you. We do not provide financial compensation to cover consequential losses, e.g. for time taken off work to receive a delivery, or if the item is intended as a gift and you have to purchase the same item from a more expensive retailer.

Description

Ferrofish A32 - READY FOR DANTE

The Ferrofish A32 Dante Version is the latest AD/DA converter from Ferrofish. Builiding on the success of the Ferrofish A32, the Ferrofish A32 Dante has an additional interface with 64 digital inputs and 64 digital outputs, which can be easily integrated into existing Dante networks.

Alternatively, with an interconnection of two A32 Dantes, a live recording on the computer of up to 64 channels is possible at any time. In this case, a separate sound card (such as, for example, when using the ADAT or MADI ports) is not necessary.

With its intuitive operating concept and redundancy options, plus multiple submix and routing possibilities, the Ferrofish A32 Dante is the perfect addition to any Dante interconnected system.

EXTENSIVE ROUTING POSSIBILITIES

The A32 Dante also features MADI I/O. Up to 64 channels can be transferred using a simple pair of glass fiber cables (or coaxial cable) spanning a distance of up to 2 kilometers (1.2 miles). Besides MADI, the A32 Dante also offers full ADAT integration.

Four fully-fledged ADAT I/O ports allow use of all 64 analogue channels, even without MADI. Thanks to the MIDI over MADI feature, the A32 Dante can also be remote controlled using MIDI data embedded in the same MADI cable. The audio transfer between the MADI input and MADI output is done with zero latency!


STABILITY FIRST

We know you need a reliable system. Thats why we have two power inputs. If one power supply fails, you see a warning on the TFT screens, and you can search for the failure while the A32 Dante still works with the other supply.

MADI is also laid out redundant: If you connect both optical and coax, the input automatically switches to the other source if sync is lost.


ADVANCED CONVERTER CHIP

High quality converter chips with excellent audio performance are supported by a sophisticated analogue amplifier circuit.

The high quality analogue circuit is partnered on the digital side with a Sharc DSP. This processor takes great care of the digital audio with it's floating point arithmetic and 80 bit wide accumulator, so that on the digital side, no bits are lost!

GIVING CONTROL BACK TO YOU

The new visual control concept of the A32 Dante embarks on a new path: Besides the precise level meters of all 64 analogue channels, the four TFT displays offer a very new, self explanatory method of operation – it's unlikely you will ever need the manual!

You don't need to install a program to have the ability to see the levels and adjust everything. Just take a look on the A32 Dante, and you can see what's happening at any time, with all channels clearly visible on the high resolution level meters.



DIRECT MONITORING ANALOGUE OR DIGITAL SIGNALS

If you've ever wanted to know exactly what's happening on your analogue or digital channels, you'll find the A32 Dante's headphone connection extremely useful. With one touch of the encoder, you can access the A32 Dante's headphone screen and giving you control over direct monitoring.

From there you can set the headphone volume and select the source for the headphone output, allowing you to monitor all incoming and outgoing audio signals on the A32 Dante. You can also store up to seven mixes which are selectable via the device's user interface.
