Alesis XT20 Digital Recorder Used Recently Serviced

The ADAT-XT20 provides an amazing new standard in audio quality for professional multi-track recording while remaining completely compatible with the huge foundation of over 110,000 ADATs in use worldwide. Using ADAT Type II, the only modular digital multitrack recording format that writes 20 bits to tape, the XT20 raises the measure of sonic excellence that ADAT recorders have established since their introduction in 1991.

The XT20 improves upon the capabilities of earlier models of ADAT and other digital recording formats by recording 8 tracks of true, linear 20-bit digital audio onto tape, without using external converters or multiplexers. No other modular digital multitrack recording format currently manufactured offers this capability. Rather than just a 25 increase, the jump from 16-bit to 20-bit recording provides audio quality that's 16 times more detailed than the 16-bit sound of compact discs, resulting in a wider dynamic range, lower quantization distortion, higher headroom, and lower noise.

To complement its 20-bits-to-tape capabilities, the XT20 uses the latest ultra-high fidelity 20-bit oversampling digital converters. The XT20 uses the same Optical Digital Interface and Synchronization Interface as other ADATs, so it may easily be implemented into an existing system. For more advanced production work, the XT20 provides built-in digital editing features (Track Copy, Tape Offset and Track Delay) and a 10-point autolocator/numerical input system. Plus, its solid die-cast aluminum chassis is designed to isolate the power supply and keep the transport aligned for heavy-duty applications. To get audio to and from tape, the XT20 provides both a servo-balanced 56-pin connector and unbalanced -10dBV inputs and outputs on phono (RCA) connectors.

For direct digital connection, the ADAT Optical Digital Interface carries up to 8 tracks at once completely in the digital domain. As a serious improvement to the world standard in modular digital multitracks, the XT2
