The Networked Audio range of audio interfaces (Horus & Hapi to the uninitiated) can easily be considered some of the best audio DACs (Digital to Analog Converters) on the planet today.
Using nothing more than a GbE port on your PC, The Networked Audio family will push the boundaries of what you thought possible for level of quality from your Microsoft Products.
For whatever your Windows audio application might be, the Networked Audio family provides the most astonishing sounding audio interface you could ever imagine.
What is The Networked Audio Family?
In very small boxes (2U and 1U respectively), the members of this family of products provide some of the most sonically pristine audio I/O, professional-grade synchronisation I/O and a flexible and intuitive routing matrix and digital format converter all wrapped together in an interface which can be accessed from any web-enabled device.
All of these boxes also come standard with RAVENNA / AES67 connectivity. In the most basic of terms, what this means for the end user is that once you plug a Horus or Hapi into your studio network, you can then pick up any input and output from the unit on any other DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) on that same network.
The best DAC you can find... just try it and see!
After hundreds of tests made by some of the world’s most “golden eared” engineers, we can say this with a strong sense of confidence, as the Networked Audio range’s DA8P line output cards keep coming out on top.
Remote Management over LAN
When changing sample rates, or managing the Horus or Hapi in any way, you can do this from any connection on your network using nothing more than a web browser.
From the elegant brushed aluminium finish, to the hand soldering of every single analog component, the Swiss-eye for precision and quality exists throughout.
AC or DC Power supplies (Hapi)
When power supply becomes a concern for you, then using the DC power option for Hapi allows you to regulate how current arrives at your DAC. The discerning ear can tell the difference and for our DAC users this was a must have option.
Some ideas on what RAVENNA and AES67 could mean for your setup:
