    Redesigned with renowned ESS Sabre32 DAC technology and new dual full-color LCDs, the 828es connects to a Mac or PC over ThunderboltT or USB 2.0 with ultra-low latency and renowned, proven Drivers to deliver 28 inputs, 32 outputs, 48-channel mixing and 32-bit floating point DSP effects processing, including Classic Reverb, modeled analog EQ, and vintage compression modeled after the legendary LA-2A.

    Two mic/guitar "combo" style inputs provide transparent preamps with remote control for individual gain/pad/48V phantom power and amp-like hi-Z guitar input.

    Control room features include a built-in talkback mic with front-panel "talk" button and"A/B" speaker select buttons. Timecode is also available via dedicated in and out sockets.
