The ARC-8 board has an amazing price of $799, but what is even more amazing is the features that come standard. It has both Unbalanced & Balanced inputs. It has 10 inputs, with 8 channels. Channel 8 is the USB channel that connects to a PC for playback and record. Channel 7 connects to a phone hybrid. The ARC 8 console is ideal for internet and small radio applications. The only thing it doesn't do is make you coffee in the morning. . . .
