[NAMM] Zoom launches a Thunderbolt audio interface
Zoom introduces at NAMM 2014 the TAC-2 ultra-compact audio interface equipped with Thunderbolt connection for Mac computers.
The Zoom TAC-2 design and format competes with many portable interfaces such as the Apogee or RME interfaces, but the difference with these models is the Thunderbolt connection, which restrains its use (for the moment) to Apple devices.
The TAC-2 offers two XLR/TRS combo mic/line inputs with Burr Brown mic preamps (+60dB of gain), a front panel 1/4” hi-Z input, as well as two TRS balanced outputs and a 1/4” stereo headphone output. The maximum resolution is 24-bit / 192kHz and a phantom power is included for condenser microphones.
The front panel of the interface features a large knob for adjusting the volume for each input, output and headphones, as well as LED meters for all the inputs and outputs.
The Zoom TAC-2 Thunderbolt audio interface is announced at around 380€. More information available at www.zoom-na.com.
