Product Description



 8 Channel Preamp 



PreSonus' DigiMax D8 is an 8-channel preamplifier featuring 8 award-winning, class-A XMAX mic preamps with 24-bit ADAT digital output.  All eight preamps include variable trim control, 48V phantom power, ultra-fast acting LED metering and 20 dB pad.  In addition, 2 instrument inputs are located on the front panel for direct Hi-Z instrument input.  Balanced TRS direct analog outputs are located on the rear panel for routing and flexibility.  The DigiMax D8 also includes word clock sync input for ultra-low jitter and robust synchronization.


The DigiMax D8 is the perfect solution to add eight professional microphone preamplifiers to any digital recording system with ADAT optical lightpipe expansion capability including Digidesign’s HD and 003 systems, RME, YAMAHA, Alesis, Mackie, and many others.


The Lightpipe Kid

With its eight XLR mic inputs and eight ¼” balanced, direct channel outputs, you can route each channel’s signal independently. This makes the DigiMax D8 a premium front end for virtually any system.


And thanks to its eight-channel, 24-bit ADAT Lightpipe output (which operates at 44.1 or 48 kHz), the DigiMax D8 provides an excellent front end for Lightpipe-equipped digital-audio devices, such as Avid's Digi 003. You’ll immediately hear the improvement.


Better yet, add a DigiMax D8 to a Lightpipe-equipped PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL. This combination provides a two-rackspace rig with 16 XMAX-equipped recording channels—enough to record an entire live band. To keep your digital audio in sync with ultra-low jitter, the D8 receives word clock at its BNC connection and sends word clock via Lightpipe.
