Use a PCIe Card with Any Thunderbolt 3-equipped Computer

Fewer and fewer new computers are being loaded with PCIe card slots. If that's what's keeping you from upgrading, you're in luck. The Echo Express SE I from Sonnet Technologies allows you to connect a single PCIe card to nearly any Thunderbolt 3-equipped Mac or PC. Use your UAD-2 card with a laptop. Or your Pro Tools | HDX card with a Mac mini. With speeds up to 2,750 MB/s, high-resolution multichannel audio is no problem for this expansion chassis. It even supports 4K video capture! The Echo Express SE I provides up to 15 watts of power to your peripherals and features a rugged aluminum housing.

Nearly every Thunderbolt 3-compatible PCIe card is supported

The Echo Express SE I supports cards from Apogee, Avid, Focusrite, Lynx, RME, SSL, Universal Audio, and more. It features an x8 PCIe slot and supports half-length+, full-height, single-width PCIe cards. And if you've got a double-width card like an RME HDSPe MADI FX, this chassis also includes space for a daughter card.

Expand your system with Thunderbolt 3

The Sonnet Technologies Echo Express SE I features two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The first connects to your computer. The second is reserved for daisy-chaining up to five additional Thunderbolt devices to your computer. 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 support allows you to connect a USB device. You can also connect a pair of 4K displays or a single 5K display. The Echo Express SE I also provides up to 15 watts of power to your bus-powered peripherals.

Well-thought-out design that's built to last

The Echo Express SE I boasts a well-thought-out design. Your PCIe card is well protected by a lightweight yet rugged aluminum shell, and a temperature-controlled fan keeps your card from overheating. Its variable-speed motor speeds up when things get hot and slows down when things get cool. The Echo Express SE I also saves energy by powering on and off with your computer.
