Great quality SRC at a good price

Kit W., 03.08.2015
Noise floor is nice and low. UI isn't the sexiest, I'd badly like a frontpanel power switch, and it'd be good to have two WC inputs considering there's bidirectional SRC and also to be able to turn off the frontpanel lights, but these are very small gripes. Unit is solidly built and compact. It gets warm but not hot and uses a proper IEC not a wall-wart. Very nearly matches its RME competition at a much lower price, and from where I stand the quality is on a par too. Recommended.

Very good audio converter for ADAT, AES3 and S / P-DIF digital audio formats

Georg8904, 11.06.2014
I feed the signals from 4 CDJ2000 (pioneer) via s / p-dif over the MC-4 and a MOTU 828x via optical ADAT further via Thunderbold to Ableton Live and back into the mixer DJM2000. This will record the DJ mix digitally and record all effects settings as automation in Ableton Live.

With the MC-4, s / p-dif signals can be converted to AES3 (sub-D) to ADAT.
Also ADAT-in is converted and output to AES3 (sub-D). It is also possible to convert s / p-dif signals at the AES3 (sub-D) input to ADAT, AES3 (sub-D) and s / p-dif (RCA). A wordclock signal for synchronizing the data lines is also provided.

The audio converter MC-4 is easy to operate, once wired and set up, it performs its task reliably and very good sound.
