The ASI6620 provides six stereo play streams mixed to two balanced stereo outputs and four stereo streams of record from two balanced stereo inputs.

Building on the ASI6620, the ASI6622 adds two AES/EBU inputs and outputs with a dedicated AES/EBU sync input and word clock input.

Rounding out the ASI6600 line, the ASI6640 provides twelve play streams mixed to four balanced stereo analog outputs and eight stereo record streams from four balanced stereo analog inputs
