The SR-1000 with a built-in 5.1/7.1 cinema audio processor can either be used directly with digital amplifiers or analogue amplifiers with an Audio IO (Input-Output) Box AIB-2000.

 

GDC’s AIB-2000 is a built-in 8-channel premium quality digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) used to interface with external audio equipment such as analog amplifiers, booth monitor, microphone, blu-ray player, and MP4 players. At the same time, AIB-2000 is a networked product, which allows the switching of input sources via Ethernet.

SR-1000 can work directly with digital amplifiers with AES3 inputs. The solution offers simple wiring and the purest digital sound not “contaminated” by compression.
