    SSL Alpha Link - This box rocks!

    After a ton of research and almost deciding to go with RME, I ran across the Alpha Link. I read nothing but positive reviews on the sound quality of the unit. I decided to take a chance and ordered the box and the MADIXtreme 64 card.

    This box delivers! Now I have 24 In and 24 out of analog! My snare jumped out of the speakers and punched me in the face. All the sonic characters showed up in my mix - punch, depth, clarity, shimmer, glue and more glue!

    For the price point, sound quality, and the 24 stellar a/d and d/a converters - this box rocks!

    Amazing product, great price!

    Works rock solid, and sounds on par if not better than converters well beyond this price point. All in a 2U rack space. I love it!

    Great Converters

    I bought Alpha Link AX a little over month ago. I always been fan of SSL and I was aiming for this purchase for 2 years. 1st thing i noticed after hooking everything up... Nice warm and clean sound. Open and big. 24 channels for that price... can't go wrong with it. I use it with D.M. D-Box and love it. Comparing both D/A conversion of SSL and DBOX, SSL is a bit warmer sounding while Dbox is a bit brighter but not necessarily harsher. One thing that I took out .5 star for is lack of SPDIF (SX version has AES/EBU) but other than that great unit.

    Great piece of gear

    This piece of gear sounds great and is a welcome addition to my studio. The converters work great and the routing is fantastic. There are many options for you. The only drawback of the Alpha-Link only goes up to 96k. If it would samplt at 192, it would have received 5 stars.

    Bang for buck

    I bought an Alpha Link AX (without MADI) in 2007 and found it to be fantastic. At that time I also purchased the Mixpander 5. In my opinion the Alpha Link offers unparalleled 'bang for buck' with 24 in/out and ranks among the best sounding AD/DA converters on the market.

    The first year I had my Mixpander/Alpha link, however, I had to replace the Alpha Link (on warranty) and now again in year four I am faced with repairing, or replacing my Alpha Link. I still rate this converter 3.5/5 stars because of its remarkable sound quality and ease of use, but the reliability has certainly been an issue in my hands.

    Solid but flawed

    I usually works great and sounds fine.

    Often when switching sample rates I have to restart the entire rig for it to work.

    It breaks every couple years and now they don't service them anymore, so I definitely would not pick one up unless you really like wasting money.
