Building on the successful launch of the Matrix X five- channel mixer and Matrix Y headphone amp, CME announces the newest members of their Matrix system - the Matrix K USB and Matrix K FW. Perfect for Podcasting or mobile recording, the ultra-compact Matrix K series sport a number of versatile features without a high price tag.
The Matrix K series feature two products with similar designs, but different digital connectivity giving customers the choice of USB or FireWire. The Matrix K FW is a FireWire audio interface and the Matrix K USB, while similar in design, is USB 2.0 based. The Matrix K USB can be expanded to FireWire with the KF400e FireWire expansion board giving customers the ultimate in creative choices.
Both Matrix K series units feature professional recording up to 24 bit, 192 kHz resolution and ship with a low-latency ASIO 2.0 driver compatible with PC and Mac. Similar to the Matrix X mixer, the Matrix K features a mic/line/guitar combo input with phantom power, an 1/8" stereo line in, a stereo line out, and two headphone outs. All inputs and outputs have independent controls for dialing in the desired levels.
The Matrix K will be available in August, 2006 for $179.99 (USB version) and $199.99 (FireWire version) US MSRP. The KF400E FireWire expansion is $99.99 US MSRP.
