Great value ADAT digital light interface for PC

The MARC A is a very affordable 8 Channel ADAT digital lightpipe PCI audio card giving a great solution for a wide variety of music and audio applications including: SONAR, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic Audio, Cool Edit Pro , Sound Forge, Wavelab, Samplitude, GigaStudio, Reason, Live and many more.

The MARC A has 8 channels of 24-bit/48kHz ADAT digital lightpipe I/O on optical connectors, which combines the sonic benefits of all-digital 24-bit I/O with the convenience and flexibility of industry-standard interface providing connectivity to a whole world of digital mixers and ADAT devices.

The MARC A optical digital ports operate with the common ADAT format. This way data can be transferred using eight channels at the same time with 24-bit and up to 48kHz into and from the PC. The MARC A can be operated as both, record slave and play master, enabling Marc A to work and record simultaneously as clock master.


All the MARC cards have multi-client drivers with extremely low latencies (down to 2 ms at 96kHz) with ASIO, GSIF and DirectSound, making them especially suitable for time critical applications, such as Soft synth and Samplers like GigaStudio, Reason, Halion etc.

MARC A hardware is ready for the next generation ASIO-IN-HARDWARE feature. This will enable direct access to the cards memory giving even better performance using any ASIO recording software including Cubase, Cubase SX, Wavelab 4, Nuendo, Ableton Live etc. This feature will be available fully functional with future driver updates.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
