WHY CHOOSE AP? AP is the recognized standard in audio test.

1 Connectivity 2 Measurements 3 Performance

A few reasons why our audio analyzers are the first choice among demanding audio professionals.

 

CHIP-LEVEL CONNECTIVITY The PSIA supports more digital serial interfaces than any other interface in the world. The APx Digital Serial I/O supports 8 channels of simultaneous audio data on TDM or multiple data lines.

MULTICHANNEL OPTIONS The APx family has native 2, 4, 8, or 16 channel options for super fast test of multichannel power amps, etc. Supported by 2700 Series, ATS-2, and APx instruments.

AUTOMATION SUPPORT AP instruments are designed with automation in mind. Various models can be connected with LabVIEW, AP Basic, .NET, or GPIB.

HDMI CONNECTIVITY The APx HDMI Option provides comprehensive audio and metadata analysis, ideal for Dolby compliance testing.
