EtherSound ES8out

8 channel EtherSound audio bridge
ES8out

Key Workflow: Conversion of eight EtherSound channels to eight analog signals

ES8out allows extracting and converting eight EtherSound channels to eight balanced analog signals at a single location.

At a glance

ES8out feature eight balanced analog outputs. All its parameters can be remotely controlled from the EScontrol software application, and can be saved to the unit so that they remain identical when the unit is switched OFF and ON.

ES8 are available with XLR connectivity, or terminal block connectivity
