From Our Research Team:
So Much in a Single Box!As the product name implies, the z-8.8 is a good way to "detangle" the rat's nest of cables plaguing most digital audio facilities. The z-8.8 functions as a digital audio patch bay, a distribution amplifier, a router, a format converter, and a channel switcher, all in one box.
The z-8.8 can distribute single sources to multiple destinations simultaneously and it can channel-switch between multiple sources to a single destination. Or, it can distribute and channel-switch at the same time. If the unit is equipped with different formats, it will make the electrical format conversion as necessary between ports. Also, the unit is fully asynchronous which allows it to handle multiple sample rates at the same time.
This version features 4 AES/EBU, 2 S/PDIF (BNC-type connectors), and 2 optical ports total.

Essential for any digital studio is the digital patchbay. Glen Z and the people at Z-Systems really know this stuff and make the products correctly so I can concentrate on recording and mixing. Also, they will make any custom-configured digital patchbay for any digital needs. Awesome, I couldn't do without it!
