Profusion Named As European Distribution Partner For Arda Technologies

Outstanding converters set new standards

ARDA logo

By now you have probably heard about Arda Technologies' breakthrough analog-to-digital converters. Offering unprecedented performance and sonic quality, the Arda ADC's raise the bar on 24-bit ADC performance, and we at Profusion are now Arda's distributor for Central, Northern, and Eastern Europe.

AT1201 spectrum

We invite you to sample and evaluate the sonic purity of these extraordinary devices, starting with the flagship AT1201. Boasting the industry’s highest dynamic range of up to 124dB, lowest THD+N of -112dB,  and a sampling rate up to 384kHz, the AT1201 is ideal for the most demanding professional and high-end audio and test & measurement applications. Providing nearly as good performance, the Arda AT12612 is a 192kHz version with lower power requirements. Both converters offer very low latency, too, at 13µs and 26µs, respectively, so they are ideal for live sound and other time-critical environments.

Superior in more than just datasheet numbers, though, Arda's best-in-class ADCs overcome the sonic limitations inherent in currently available solutions. The noise floor characteristics of both the AT1201 and AT12612, for example, are uniformly smooth and neutral sounding, while low out-of-band noise levels maintain performance at high sample rates, with no fear of aliasing or problems downstream.

The Arda ADCs exhibit very low intermodulation distortion (IM), too, a common source of audible degradation with other converters. Time domain response was a design priority and the results are converters with essentially no pre- or post-ringing, especially at higher sample rates.

For samples, pricing, and more information about the AT1201 and AT12612, please contact your nearest Profusion sales office. And stay tuned for more from Arda Technologies. These guys are very serious...and very smart.


High Performance Digital Mic Pre Now Shipping!


THAT Corp's 2-chip set offers outstanding analogue preamp with digital gain control

This is the product you've been waiting for! THAT Corporation's no-compromise solution of THAT1570 Low Noise Audio Preamplifier and THAT5171 Digital Preamp Controller is now available and ready for your next-generation products. The chip set's analogue specifications and sonic qualities are superb (like 1nV/rtHz noise at 60dB gain, 4.2MHz bandwidth, THD+N of 0.0008% at 40dB gain, and slew rate of 53V/µs). Digital gain control is via an addressable serial-peripheral interface (SPI), with gain programmable at 5.6dB, and from 13.6 to 68.6dB in 1dB steps.

The THAT1570/5171combination spec out at 1nV/rtHz noise at 60dB gain, with a bandwidth of 4.2MHz and THD+N of 0.0008% (40dB gain), and a 53V/us slew rate. Digital control is via an addressable serial-peripheral interface (SPI) and gain is programmable at 5.6dB, and from 13.6 to 68.6dB in 1dB steps.

THAT's engineers pulled out all the stops to ensure the THAT1570/5171combination will be suitable for even the most demanding applications. They've provided a differential servo which reduces output offsets to less than 1mV, and patent-pending techniques to minimize zipper noise. The differential audio signal output, 4 general purpose digital outputs, and versatile SPI bus combine to simplify design without limiting flexibility and creativity.

Now there's a digitally controlled mic pre you can trust to deliver the goods, don't wait to get your hands on this outstanding chip set. Samples, demo boards, and production quantities are available now by contacting any Profusion sales office.


Reverbs Sound Off

Effects Solutions Ease Design Without Compromising Quality

Musicians are picky about reverbs. That's why we offer reverb and effects solutions that are both sonically superior and cost-effective. Whether you're looking for a drop-in module or the flexibility of an IC, whether you want masterfully crafted presets or plan to roll your own sound effects, Profusion is going to have the solution.

Take our Resolute Audio modules, for example. Designed by David Simpao, one of the most knowledgable effects engineers on the planet, these small boards provide exquisitely tailored patches for most popular applications. Want additional flexibility? You'll get that from the advanced chips offered by Wavefront and SPIN. Or take a look at our entire reverb line-up. You're sure to find the right device for your next design.
