ULN8 is the result of Metric Halo's ultimate mission to design an integrated product to literally provide the best performance in each of its component sections while still providing all of the benefits of tight integration in a single field-capable package.

Metric Halo's new and improved 3D version of the ULN8 combines a number of existing MH technologies including 192k sample rate support for both analogue and AES inputs and outputs, DC-coupled, zero phase distortion, servo balanced line inputs and outputs and ULNR next generation remote controlled preamp technology, with their new 3D USB-C powered interface board.

The ULN8's preamps build upon the audio performance pioneered by the ULN2 preamp design with the additional benefit and technological innovation of full clickless remote control of the ULN pre. This is accomplished with a sophisticated gain switching mechanism which incorporates Metric Halo "zero-cross" technology. Fully clickless remote controlled Monitor outputs. All ULN8 analogue outputs incorporate Metric Halo clickless remote technology allowing for flexible monitoring applications from stereo to 7.1 surround. 

By implementing all the functions of a complete audio front end in a single package, the ULN8 is able to provide unprecedented power and quality in a lightweight, low-power consumption, single RU hardware unit. This integration provides significant benefits to the owner in the form of reduced cabling (lower cost, weight and less opportunity for failure), weight, power consumption, and cost, while at the same time providing unprecedented performance. 

What does integration mean to you? Rather than pay for duplicate case work, duplicate power supplies and redundant interconnects, you get a product where all the components are engineered to work together and everything you pay for is dedicated to providing functionality towards the execution of your task. But the benefits don’t stop there. By tuning all the functional blocks of the system and removing external interconnects, the ULN8 provides enhanced performance and reduced chance of failure from external influences. Connectors and cables are all potential sources of failure and interference. By eliminating preamp to converter and converter to interface cabling, these sources of cost and potential failure and interference are also eliminated. Internal operating levels within the box are tuned for optimal performance.

The ULN8’s integrated design provides maximal performance with a minimum use of material and power.
