Reference audio interface in MINT condition. Made in Switzerland.

Description from Weiss Engineering:
inputs to the AFI1 consist of four XLR sockets for the AES/EBU signals
and two TOSLINK sockets for eight channels each of ADAT format signals.
The number of ADAT channels scale with the sampling frequency, i.e. the
sixteen channels are there at 44.1 or 48 kHz, while at 88.2 or 96 kHz
there are eight ADAT channels available and at 176.4 or 192 kHz there
are four ADAT channels available. The number of AES/EBU channels stays
constant for all sampling frequencies though.
outputs from the AFI1 follow the same connector scheme and restrictions
as the inputs. There are two Firewire 400 sockets for connecting the
computer and for daisy chaining more Firewire devices. Inthat manner the
number of channels can be multiplied by adding more AFI1 interfaces to
Synchronization The AFI1 is synchronized via
an internal sampling frequency generatoror via any of the input
connectors. There also are BNC connectors available for feeding an
external word-sync signal and for taking out the word-sync signal from
the AFI1 to synchronize other equipment.
Configuration switches Configuration
switches at the back of the unit allow for setting the dual wire mode
for the AES/EBU inputs/outputs (active at 176.4 or 192 kHz), for
switching the ADAT interfaces off in case they are not used, which saves
on Firewire bus bandwidth and for setting the synchronization frequency
in the case of the dual wire mode.
Front panel controls The
front panel shows a power switch and three LEDs for power on
indication, Firewire connection indication and synchronization lock
