Both are 192 kHz-capable half-height PCI Express cards.�

The ASI5810 provides one stereo analog and digital input, one stereo analog and digital output, two record streams and four play streams. Audio formats include 8-, 16- and 32-bit PCM. The GPIO features consist of four opto-isolated inputs and two relay isolated outputs.�

The ASI5811 adds a low-noise microphone preamp with a software adjustable gain.�

Both analog and AES/EBU interfaces are standard on the ASI581x cards. AudioScience says that the analog interface is balanced and uses 24-bit oversampling converters to deliver more than 100 dB of dynamic range with THD+N better than 0.002% at sample rates from 32 kHz to 192 kHz. In addition, the AES/EBU input features a hardware-based sample rate converter with a range of 32 to 192 kHz.�

The ASI5811�s balanced microphone input is designed to work with professional studio microphones requiring 48 V phantom power. Gain is adjustable from 20 dB to 60 dB. Processing effects for the ASI5811�s 32-bit floating point DSP include a compressor/limiter/expander, and a three-band parametric equalizer.�

Each has SoundGuard technology to prevent damage from lightning strikes and voltage surges.�

The cards are Windows 7-, 10- and Server-compatible, as well as Linux-compatible. Both are compatible with AudioScience�s Multi-Rate Mixing technology for playback, recording and mixing. They will ship with XLR breakout cables.�
