Focusrite ISA 828 8 Channel Pre-amp (with free digi card worth £599)

£1,795.00

  • Eight ISA series transformer-based pre amps
    In a single robust 2U chassis, offering the classic Focusrite pre at its lowest cost-per-channel to date.
  • New Optional Eight Channel 192kHz ADC
    Embodies cutting-edge conversion technology, incorporating Focusrite analogue circuitry to deliver the best A/D performance on the market, bar none
  • Convenient 25 pin D-Type connectors 
    The ISA828 integrates quickly and seamlessly with ProTools HD, as well as other popular hard disk recorders and mixing desks.
  • Switchable Impedance
    Selectable per channel; choose one of four carefully selected input impedances, including the original ISA110 setting, to suit any microphone.
  • Direct Instrument inputs 
    Each instrument input features high and low impedance options to provide a comprehensive and accessible DI solution.
  • Inserting available on every channel
    Allows external devices to be inserted between the pre amp and the ADC, using the 25-pin D-type cable.
  • High pass filter, Phase reverse and Phantom power 
    Each has a dedicated switch, independent on each channel.
  • Six LED input meter
    Complete with precise meter trim - Designed to utilise the same reference points as Digidesign’s HD™
