This Digital Audio Router was initially developed by Jonathan Little while
working for A&M Studios & Mastering (the old A&M Chaplin lot,
which is new home of The Jim Henson Company). Other routers and distributors
designed for digital audio that were evaluated left a 'footprint' on the
sound. The design objective was for a router that sounded exactly like
two digitally-connected units, using a single "wide eye" style
110 ohm AES cable.
Ease of use was another issue that needed to be addressed. Some digital
audio routers available offered great flexibility by eliminating the physical
'tangle', at the expense of a mental tangle, the dreaded heirarchical
menu or multi sequence button pushing. What about the user who just wanted
to push one button?
Sound quality of the Little Labs Digital Audio Router was approved by
top-notch mastering engineers (Stephen Marcussen & Dave Collins),
and the user interface was designed for complete technophobes!
The Little Labs Digital Audio Router has been refined both cosmetically
and electronically from the original A&M model, though is still hand
made to the highest standards. It uses a 4 layer circuit board, and all
AES ins and outs are transformer coupled and internally ground liftable.
All AES outputs (if not selected) are properly terminated (nothing else
out there does that). You will experience no switching pops. You may use
high sample rates and 24 bit digital audio with no sacrifice in performance.
All digital flags & clocks remain intact while passing through this
router. You can use this router with absolute confidence that you are
not sacrificing a thing. The Little Labs AES Digital Audio Mastering Router
is a "How did I work without it" tool that will greatly benefit
any studio or mastering facility.
