    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    Warehouse Resealed

    A warehouse resealed product is usually a customer return. These products are not in absolutely new condition, but will ship with everything the brand new product would ship with including manuals* and the full factory warranty*. These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 

    Blemished

    This is typically a customer return with minor cosmetic imperfections, such as superficial scratches or scuffs on the finish. This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly. It may be less attractive than Warehouse Resealed inventory, but it's priced even lower!

    Factory Resealed

    A factory resealed product is purchased directly from its manufacturer, who may have refurbished the product or used it for training and demonstration purposes.

    Product Description


    The Audient ASP880 is an 8-channel microphone preamplifier & ADC that will transform your sessions into world class recordings, the perfect addition to your set-up. ASP880 provides eight of Audient's renowned console mic pres, pristine converter technology and a versatile feature set that includes Variable Impedance and Variable High Pass Filters. All in a 1RU rack!

    Upgrade Your Sound. The first step to audio excellence.

    Transform your sessions into world class recordings with ASP880, the perfect addition to your set-up. Bypass the mic pres and converters in your current interface and achieve the same audio excellence as the top studios.

    World Class Mic Pres. The professional sound you deserve.

    Audient's renowned Class-A, console mic pre outshines the competition and gives you the same sonic quality of products costing three or four times the price. Capture the detail and excitement of your audio sources, all with a hint of analogue coloration that will sound stunning on any project!Developed by design legend David Dearden, our mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and accurate translation, the ASP880 will quickly become your 'go to' mic pre.

    Pristine Converter Technology. Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside.

    ASP880 provides you with the highest grade converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. The integral ADC guarantees you will have the best conversion possible. This isn't just the best converter in a mic pre either, it stands up against dedicated converters too. You can focus on the music and let ASP880 take care of the rest.

    Plug and Play. Plug straight in and be inspired.

    As well as offering you 8 channels of mic pre and line inputs, ASP880 has two sonically accurate discrete JFET DI inputs, so you can plug your guitar or bass straight in.Take Control. Enhance your audio with ASP880's versatile feature set.

    Bring your outboard in from the cold

    Ever wanted to add compression or EQ to your signal before going to the computer? Well with ASP880 you can. Simply insert any analogue processor before the converters
    - it's as easy as that!The A-D button allows ASP880 to function as an 8 channel mic pre while you use the converters separately in stand-alone mode.

    Say Goodbye to Pesky Low frequencies

    Lose those unwanted low frequencies with a simple to use variable high-pass filter. The result is a clean, ready to record signal.

    Wrap it up with a ribbon

    If you're partial to the character of ribbon mics, then ASP880 is made for you. Variable impedance allows you to match the pre to your favorite ribbon mic. Retain the punch and frequency response the mic was born with. It also works on your other mics, just more subtly.

    Built to Last. Quality deserves protection.

    ASP880 has been designed to last, its all-metal construction and hand milled aluminum knobs will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.All this in 1RU!
