System194 Configuration

Here you can put together all the components you want and place them in the shopping cart. Please select the option “Request a non-binding offer” at the end. We will then contact you immediately to fine-tune the final configuration.

System194 Mainframe


System19x Blockframe


up to 4 pieces per mainframe

System19x Standard Modules


up to four “standard” 2-channel modules per block frame,
i.e. max. eight “standard” channels:


Line-level AD converter with fixed sensitivity


Microphone and line level AD converter


smaller variant of the “arfi-DAC” topology, especially intended for larger configurations up to 32 channels

2-channel analog input

Analog input with input transformers; Alternatively switchable via analog source selection to the main monitoring outputs of a system19x-dac2reference

System19x Reference Modules


Up to two “reference” 2-channel modules per block frame,
i.e. max. four “reference” channels:


Top class microphone and line level AD converter


DA converter in “arfi-reference- DAC” topology

However, a block of eight channels should usually only be equipped with one type of module;
mixed configurations are thus only done block by block.

per mainframe up to two MADI-IOs or up to two DANTE-IOs or one MADI-IO plus one DANTE-IO:

24Bit/192kHz 16-Channel-MADI-IO

With a pure ADC configuration, the 16 return paths are output as AES / EBU on Sub-Ds according to Tascam assignment

24Bit/192kHz 16-Channel-DANTE-IO

With a pure ADC configuration, the 16 return paths are output as AES/EBU on Sub-Ds according to Tascam assignment

Including AES/EBU Multichannel-Digital-IO

In addition to the optional MADI and DANTE modules, each mainframe is automatically equipped with the AES/EBU interfaces that match the configuration ordered.

Up to 16 ADC channels get one Sub-D with the AES/EBU outputs; up to 32 ADC channels then two Sub-Ds. Likewise: Up to 16 DAC channels are supplied with the AES/EBU inputs by one Sub-D; up to 32 DAC channels then from two Sub-Ds.

These are included in the basic price of the mainframe. A surcharge only applies for additional 2-channel digital IOs (XLR or RJ45-Ethercon) or 8-channel IOs on RJ45-Ethercon. Anyway, please inquire about such special configurations from us.

When equipped with MADI or DANTE, the AES/EBU outputs from the ADCs are available in parallel to the MADI and/or DANTE outputs.

DACs are connected through one-to-one as standard if MADI or DANTE is available, i.e. MADI1-16 from module A to DAC1-16. MADI1-16 from module B to DAC17-32.

If no MADI or DANTE is fitted, the DACs are supplied via AES/EBU on Sub-D.

Including AES/EBU-2-channel-Inputs and Wordclock IO

Each mainframe is equipped with up to two AES/EBU inputs and word clock IO.

In pure ADC configurations, one AES/EBU input is equipped as a sync input.

< p> If a single system19x-dac2reference module is equipped as a monitoring DAC, the two AES/EBU inputs can be switched to the DAC.

The word clock input is always available. The word clock output is only available in connection with at least one ADC.

Including Operating Elements

The operating elements are located entirely on the front and are selected automatically to match the desired configuration:

One block for PSU and clock section control, thus, for the basic elements of the mainframe.

One to four blocks of eight for GAIN, mic-line switching, pad and P48 per block of eight with system193adc2mic-line

One to four blocks of eight for GAIN, mic-line switching, pad, P48, passive and ratio, each block of eight with system193adc2mic-line-reference

Up to twice the configuration of the multi-channel interface in the lower level of the system194
