Merging Technologies NADAC converters
Merging Technologies announces the release of NADAC, their very first digital-to-analog analog that supports Ravenna network.
The new NADAC completes the range of Merging Technologies Ravenna networked interfaces, which already comprises Horus and Hapi. The manufacturer explains that they chose the Ravenna network standard over the Gigabit Ethernet because it is open, AES67 compatible, it offers better performance and allows for transporting DXD and DSD signal with a high number of channels as well as audio data.
The NADAC is designed for use with any server or audio player via a single Cat5e or Cat6 cable ; it supports ASIO on Windows and CoreAudio/DoP on Mac OS X. You can even daisy-chain multiple NADAC and control them together, Merging Technologies developed a web-based management interface that can be used on any computer, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection.
The NADAC is available in two editions, one stereo and another offering 8 channels.
