Combine multiple digital sources with this versatile format converter! The Behringer Ultramatch Pro provides automatic conversion between S/PDIF and AES/BU files, and unifies sample rates from 30 kHz to 100 kHz to preset rate or wordclock sync.

The Behringer Ultramatch PRO SRC2496 is the successor of the renowned Behringer SRC2000, and enables you to transfer digital audio signals between devices with different sample rates, formats or interfaces and remove dropouts or jitter from digital media. Simultaneously operable XLR, RCA, and optical outputs offer splitter functionality.

The 24-bit/96 kHz compatible SRC2496 offers high-quality 24-bit/96 kHz A/D and D/A conversion. The Behringer Ultramatch PRO SRC2496 is as such perfectly suitable for studio work. Format conversion between AES/EBU and S/PDIF (coaxial or optical) is provided for, with high-quality signal output with 16-, 20- or 24-bit resolution. Universal sample rate synchronization is done via wordclock or digital input.

XLR, RCA and optical outputs are simultaneously operational with separately selectable inputs, turning this unit into a digital patch bay.

Features

- High-end 24-bit/96 kHz A/D and D/A converters for ultimate signal purity
- Converts any sample rate between 31 and 100 kHz into 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96 kHz sample rates
- Flexible format conversion between AES/EBU and S/PDIF (coaxial or optical)
- High-quality signal output with 16-, 20- or 24-bit resolution
- Universal sample rate synchronization via wordclock or digital input
- Allows parallel A/D and D/A conversion at identical sample rate
- Precise metering for input/output signal as well as powerful headphone monitoring
- Dithering automatically adapted for word length conversion
- Allows direct manipulation of emphasis bits and other significant, digitally transmitted information in order to record virtually any audio signal
- High-precision quartz clock generator removes jitter and corrects off-tune, incorrect sample rates
- Extremely fast tracking supports varispeed applications
- Self-adjusting anti-aliasing filter with exceptionally steep edge
- Consumer devices (e. g. DAT recorders) can be synchronized with the studio clock
- All 3 outputs (XLR, RCA, Optical) simultaneously operational (splitter)
- Inputs separately selectable (patchbay functionality)
- All digital inputs/outputs balanced and galvanically isolated
- All analog inputs/outputs servo-balanced
- High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (36 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "You cannot go wrong with this!"
Sound: The sound quality for this unit is awesome considering its price tag. It has much better sound quality (a much lower noise floor) than I have ever been able to get with a high quality computer sound card. Feature: The entire unit as a whole is a 'swiss-army' knife. Have not used the emphasis though. The SCMS removal is nice - it allows old consumer DAT-tapes to be redubbed. Analog RCA Inputs and outputs would be nice to add though. Ease of Use: Use two of them back-to-back to send 2-channel stereo SPDIF audio through a building's CAT5 Ethernet cabling without picking up any AC hum or distortion. Very easy to use - no learning curve needed. Plug it in and your done. Quality: Ask me that a year from now. The unit seems to be well made - has solid extruded aluminum rack mounts that will hold the unit securely in a rack. The buttons and switches seem like they will hold up. Value: It's a great price thats affordable for starting musicians, which I believe that it's perfectly priced for this group of people who are most likely to buy this kind of equipment. The Wow Factor: Easy to understand and use. Did not buy it for looks, but it's LED layouts and controls are easy to see and use. Overall: I can't see A/D - D/A conversion ever growing obsolete, especially with it's low noise floor. I wish I knew about this unit earlier.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Clean sound, good features, at a good price"
Sound: The ADC section is quite clean and flat sounding, with a low noise floor. Feature: It might occassionally be nice to have standard unbalanced inputs like RCA or TS. Otherwise its got all the features I can imagine needing. Quality: Although I have heard others claim that Behringer's products are not reliable in their first release, I have never had anything go wrong with this or the other Behringer product that I own. Value: This is a good value. The clean sound and the extensive features are pretty impressive given the price tag. Manufacturer Support: Don't know how their support is because I never needed it. The Wow Factor: This is a practical unit that solves problems with different sampling rates, and converts to and from digital. It's not the kind of thing that has sex appeal. You buy it for its features. Overall: For a lot more money you can probably get a slight increase in dynamic range, a tiny bit less jitter, etc. But for anything less than a perfectionist, this is a great product at a great price, and I've been happily using it to make recordings.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
