Excellent quality with huge number of in/outs
George Simatos, 20.05.2020
While looking for a way to interconnect our Radar system to the RME HDSPfx card via MADI to ADAT, I discovered this unit. I was a little hesitant in the beginning since Ferrofish was not an established brand in the pro-audio circles but since it was at a very good price and also had 32 A/D and D/A converters besides its 32 MADI to ADAT and ADAT to MADI channels, I decided to overcome my hesitations and so I finally bought it.
After almost 3 years I can definitely say that this is one of my best purchases.
It's a very sturdy but elegant at the same time unit and easy enough, compared in particular with its sheer number of ins/outs, to setup from the just two front panel controls.
There is also a small free app available for PC and Mac on the Ferrofish site, which supposedly makes setting up and controlling the unit even easier but the Mac version I tried at first wasn't functioning properly, so I had to use a spare laptop PC in order to do that. I don't find the app necessary by any means though, since as I previously wrote the front panel buttons do a great job anyway.
As far as I remember, it took me less than half an hour to set the unit up when i first got it and since then it is there, doing the job it has been asked to do, day in - day out, flawlessly and without a single hiccup!
Sound wise the A to D and D to A converters are very good indeed and even though we use them as ancillaries to the Radar's converters, I wouldn't hesitate to use them in any but the most critical or demanding situations.
All in all, the A32 is a very versatile, good sounding and superbly designed and constructed unit, that will do the job in any situation where a vast amount of MADI, ADAT and analog inputs and outputs is needed.

Absolutely a stellar product!
EvilDragon, 22.05.2018
I bought A32 in order to expand my I/O since I use a lot of 19" rack synths (my main audio interface is UFX+). I am connecting it to UFX+ via MADI, and it all just works. A bit of time to set up all the input gains, and I'm in game!

Build quality is really good, the 4 displays are sharp, have good contrast and visibility. Getting around the unit is slightly confusing at first but after a few uses it is fine. Basically this is a set-and-forget kind of unit, unless you're shuffling your devices around an awful lot.

Price/performance ratio is through the roof on this unit! Absolutely get one if you need a lot of additional I/O via digital connections, Sound-wise I cannot fault it - the converters sound pretty neutral to me. What you put in is what you'll get out.

That's all. Very happy with this unit!

Solid performer with good routing and metering
06.10.2016
A lot of channels of conversion in a small space. The metering is great (all channels in view at once) and the routing allows me to route any of the inputs to any of the outputs, with optional gain adjustment (useful for interfacing with pro and consumer I/O). Easy to set up, and great redundancy facilities, both for MADI and power connections. Sounds fine -- no concerns there after a couple of high-expectation sessions. Can't fault it really, unless you complain about the external power supply -- but at this price?
