z-link Mini SRC
The z-link mini sample rate converter is based on the same sample rate conversion technology as the z-2src.

Product Description
The z-link is a palm-sized, real-time sample rate converter. It provides an affordable, high-quality solution to a great number of digital audio interfacing problems. For example, you can use the z-link to sample-rate convert the 48 kHz output from a Yamaha ProMix 01 to a 44.1 kHz signal which can be fed to the input of a CD-R machine digitally. Or, you can use the z-link to convert the 44.1kHz output of a CD transport to 48 kHz for use in digital audio-for-video applications.
The z-link also features a professional/consumer output switch, which allows you to set the output channel status as desired. This is important when used with most consumer and some professional DAT machines (such as the Panasonic SV3700), which demand to see the appropriate channel status bits when recording digital inputs. Because the z-link is based on the AD1890 asynchronous sample rate converter chip, it also performs spectacularly as a jitter attenuator.
An externally synchronizable version of the z-link, the z-link+ is also available.

z-link+ Mini Sample Rate Converter
The z-link+ mini sample rate converter is an enhanced version of the z-link and is based on the same sample rate conversion technology as the z-2src. The z-link+ has the same core features as the z-link but adds an external synchronization loop, which allows the z-link+ to have its output sample rate locked to an external AES/EBU or S/PDIF digital audio signal.

Product Description
The z-link+ is a palm-sized, real-time sample rate converter. It provides an affordable, high-quality solution to a great number of digital audio interfacing problems. For example, you can use the z-link+ to sample-rate convert the 48 kHz output from a Yamaha ProMix 01 to a 44.1 kHz signal which can be fed to the input of a CD-R machine digitally. Or, you can use the z-link+ to convert the 44.1kHz output of a CD transport to 48 kHz for use in digital audio-for-video applications.
The z-link+ also features a professional/consumer output switch which allows you to set the output channel status as desired. This is important when used with most consumer and some professional DAT machines (such as the Panasonic SV3700), which demand to see the appropriate channel status bits when recording digital inputs. Because the z-link+ is based on the AD1890 asynchronous sample rate converter chip, it also performs spectacularly as a jitter attenuator. The z-link+ is quite useful in application where digital audio signals need to be sample rate converted and/or synchronized. For example, D2 digital composite video has a digital audio sample rate of 48 kHz. However, the 48 kHz input digital audio signal must be locked exactly to the D2 video machine's sample rate reference. For example, the D2 machine would not be able to record on its digital audio input the output of a 48 kHz DAT machine that was free-running on its own internal sample rate reference. The z link+ is useful in this situation; the D2's digital audio output can be sent to the z-link+'s external sync input and the z-link+ will, in turn, use this reference to generate a digital audio output which is in sync with the D2 machine.

z-link96 mini sample rate converter
The z-link96 mini sample rate converter is based on the same sample rate conversion technology as the z-3src.
Product Description
The z-link96 is a 24-bit 96 kHz version of the z-link. An externally-synchronizable version of the z-link96, the z-link96+ is also available.
z-link96+ mini sample rate converter
The z-link96+ mini sample rate converter is based on the same sample rate conversion technology as the z-3src.
Product Description:
The z-link96+ is a 24-bit 96 kHz version of the z-link+.


Quotes From Satisfied Users

"I know I can always go to Z-Systems when I have a difficult digital audio interfacing or signal processing problem. Their equipment, particularly the z-link, has helped me out of many emergencies and has become an integral part of my digital recording set-up."
Hans Zimmer, Academy Award-winning composer

"The Z-Systems z-2src and the z-link+ are extremely transparent and reliable sample rate converters. They are indispensable to me for reclocking the outputs of digital devices which lack provisions for external sync. (most DAT machines, CD players, small digital mixers, etc.) , so that these devices can be used with a digital console."
Mick Guzauski
