TUSTIN, CA - Hall Research, www.hallresearch.com, announces the release of the AD-340 Universal Audio Delay Processor. This compact device can add delay to stereo as well as multi-channel bitstream Audio signals. Audio delay has traditionally played an important role in large venue sound reinforcement systems, however the increasing prevalence of high definition video has created a new niche due to the time required to process HD video causing lip-sync issues. The AD-340 provides both analog (L/R) and digital (SPDIF) inputs and outputs, enabling conversion between analog stereo to LPCM or vice versa.
For advanced control, the AD-340 connects to a PC via USB port. No special drivers are needed and Hall Research provides a free software utility that allows advanced features such as: selection of sample rate for analog inputs, temperature compensation of delay calculation for a given distance, and gain level control of analog inputs and outputs. The AD-340 is designed and manufactured in Southern California and is available at a suggested retail price of $295.
