Vienna, Austria — 7 September 2015 — NOA (IBC booth 8.D91) will unveil a new compact 8/8-2ch AD/DA hardware audio interface at IBC 2015. The N7000c provides a single high-quality interface that accepts up to four concurrent connections to analog replayer devices and delivers outstanding dynamic range, classic preamp modelling, Bitproof support and many other advanced features for the audio archive professional.
The exceptionally wide feature set and convenient form factor set the N7000c apart as a versatile and cost-effective solution for high quality audio transfers. The N7000c is the first interface of its kind to offer the security of Bitproof control, a feature in conjunction with NOA Record which eliminates interstitial errors by creating checksums in the DSP of the N7000c and comparing them against the written soundfile, and it can connect simultaneously with up to four replay devices of different types, such as record decks, reel-to-reel tape decks, Archéophone, and other analog players. Connections to player devices can be via RS232, 9pin and CAT5 through the integrated DANTE interface, which allows users to connect the laptop to the network to get eight uncompressed 192kHz LINEAR streams without needing PCI cards.
With its outstanding 122dB dynamic range, the N7000c handles typical archival transfers without requiring gain readjustment, and leaves more than enough foot- and headroom.
Dynamic adjustments can be left to simple server side normalisations which can be done without raising the noise floor in the analogue domain, making transfer workflows much more efficient.
High fidelity transfers can be realised without external phono preamps for 78 & LP by choosing one of the N7000c’s selectable phono preamp curves (RIAA, Westrex, Decca, Blumlein, Columbia, HMV etc.). Historical phono presets can be applied and users can create their own filter coefficients.
“Until now, to achieve something like the equivalent capabilities, a buyer would have to assemble an 8-channel A/D converter, fit PCI audio cards to a computer, add external remote capabilities, and phono preamps – at a cost of at least €10,000,” said Christophe Kummer, NOA’s CEO. “Even then many of the advanced features of the N7000c would be lacking. Now, audio and archive professionals can have a one-box master of all trades with amazing quality and features at a category-redefining price. ”
Designed to be used as a standalone device, or with NOA Record or the new NOA Record Pico system, the N7000c can form the ingest hub of an audio archiving operation, and can also be used as a high-fidelity ADDA interface to any DAW.
