Endorsed, Direct Replacements for QSC/Biamp Units

NEWCASTLE, DE (June 06, 2008) AudioScience, Inc., a leader of professional audio peripherals for the broadcast and entertainment industries, has created four new modules for their ASI2416 line. Eight-channel input only and eight-channel output only modules will be shown at the 2008 InfoComm show in Las Vegas. Both modules are available with either balanced analog or AES/EBU digital inputs or outputs.

QSC, a leading manufacturer of power amplifiers, loudspeakers, signal processing, digital signal transport, and computer control systems for professional audio markets worldwide, formally endorsed the ASI2416 line as replacements for their discontinued RAVE series in February of this year. At that time, the ASI2416 had both input and output capabilities. With the addition of the four new modules, the following RAVE units will now have direct replacements in the AudioScience line: the 160S-24, the 161S-24, the 80S, and the 81S.

Biamp, a leading international provider of professional installed audio systems, also recently discontinued two CobraNet products: their EXPI-D and EXPO-D digital CobraNet expander boxes. Biamp recognizes AudioScience's ASI2416 AES/EBU digital units as drop-in replacements for their discontinued expander boxes.

AudioScience's ASI2416 allows Biamp and QSC to continue to provide basic CobraNet input and output for their customers.

Though the new modules allow for a more direct replacement for the RAVE and EXPI/O-D lines, the ASI2416 is scalable and network configurable. As Richard Gross, President of AudioScience, explains, "If you purchase an ASI2416 with an analog module in it and down the road realize you now need digital I/O, all you need to do is buy the module, not another 1RU rack mount unit. On top of that, you don't need to be in the same room as the ASI2416 to make trim level or line level adjustments. Just go to any PC on your CobraNet network and open our application, ASIControl, to make the adjustments."

AudioScience has an order form available on its website for ordering CobraNet devices. One can customize the ASI2416 with the specific modules required and choose specific connector ends for the modules; either pluggable terminal blocks, StudioHub+, or XLR on breakout cables.
