AMS Neve (Burnley, UK) introduces the Modular I/O System 96 (MIOS96), which delivers definitive Neve-quality audio at 24-bit/96kHz or48kHz/44.1kHz resolution from a precision-engineered package.

Each compact, 4U MIOS rack houses up to six hot-pluggable modulesselected from a range, whicj supports a variety of analog and digitalI/O formats, and connects these to the console using MADI. Silent,natural cooling is used, and dual-redundant supplies are incorporated,removable from the front of the rack.

Features of the rack include:

  • choice of dual-fiber or dual-co-ax MADI connections

  • four built-in DAC converters in addition to any DAC modules that maybe fitted for talkback, foldback or studio speakers

  • a front panel headphone socket that can be switched to monitor anyof the rack inputs

  • AMS Neve's WorkFlow initiative, which provides bi-directional,intelligent integration to confirm which channel on the console eachinput is connected to

The first MIOS 96 module to be released is a Quad MicrophoneAmplifier. Based on the classic Neve mic input stage, the new designprovides for 24-bit, 96kHz conversion circuitry. Each mic amp canswitch between two microphone and one line-level input, and includes aremotely switchable analog limiter and a highpass filter.

Other modules due for release include line-level ADC and DACmodules, each with 16 channels of I/O, and an AES/EBU module with eightdual channels of sample rate converter input and eight of output.
