Clearly, the Prism Sound Dream ADA8 (PSDADA) is a complete machine, seriously built, well thought out ... Its features and functions offered are complete, clear, very accessible for yourself:

<ul>
Double AD + DA converter, two paths (path) clearly separated, able to work at 2 different frequencies, up to 96 K for the model ADA8 and 192 K for ADA8XR, dithering evolved (much more interesting than the traditional TPDF) Overkill madness and detachable, easy to read displays and other LED whose brightness is adjustable ...
However, for the price (terrible!) Would be expected to have the optional module processing (processing) that provides functions SRC (included in the AD2, almost as expensive as the model 8 votes AD + DA .. .). It's really a shame on the part of Prism Sound, whose chief comercial (Jody Thorne) is a commercial leader, nothing else, without his passion for ... When you think the Mytek Digital 8X192 ADDA is proposed a quarter of the price of the Prism, it boggles. </ul>

OVERALL OPINION

A super-friendly product
Get started fast, thanks to the many hot keys which are like the stones of spetits minnows on the signal path, mode AD and DA mode. A real plus, avoiding for hours to navigate the menus of the beast. A rear face provided (but only one output WCK against 6 on the Mytek) SubD25 port of digital I / O very tough, a wiring for balanced XLR analog I / O (other options are available, including a ProTools module - which some do not work well at all - and one FireWire module whose price is worthy of the tariff policy of the brand). I use it for more than two years and I am truly happy. Except ...
<ul> The internal clock works great but the external sync is not perfect, especially with ProTools HD interface. Monster Cable WCK plan of good quality
The comparison with Mytek blind test (I did not share at home, juror) is hard enough for Prism. It is not clear why this price difference is justified, unless you're an addict of 2U, LEDs with adjustable brightness, the LCD backlight adjustable opportunities for sophisticated monitoring but impossible to leave the creature in a format Professional exploitable (it is limited to two RCA ...), so dark. </ul>
