At a glance

  • Provides PCIe Card Expansion — Use high-performance PCIe cards with Thunderbolt-equipped computers
  • Thunderbolt 3 Interface — Maximum performance with computers with Thunderbolt 3 technology, backward compatible with host computers and other devices equipped with 10Gbps Thunderbolt technology (with Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter)
  • Three PCIe Slots — Supports three full-length, full-height, single-width cards, or one double-width card plus one single-width card
  • Remarkably Quiet — Large, temperature-controlled, variable-speed fans that automatically cool the cards, plus computer-modeled design that reduces airflow turbulence and velocity, combine to provide quieter cooling for all cards
  • Integrated Universal Power Supply — Built-in 300W power supply with 75W auxiliary power connector
  • Rugged Steel Housing — Provides robust and secure protection for any environment
  • Every Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Supported — Works with every Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe card, regardless of length or height

The Sonnet Echo III Desktop is a professional desktop 3-slot Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe expansion chassis allowing the user to add up to 3 PCIe cards.

The Sonnet Echo III Desktop uses the high performance of Thunderbolt 3 to connect up to additional PCIe peripherals such as graphics card, DSP cards, SSD, Networking and more. Every type of Thunderbolt 3-compatible cards including non-GPU PCIe 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 as well as audio DSP, 6Gb/12Gb SAS and SATA host, SSD storage and more.

Avid Pro Tools Qualified

HDX users will also benefit from the HDX mode which instantly optimises the system to accommodate up to three Pro Tools HDX PCIe cards. Furthermore, the chassis has been tested and qualified by Avid for use with Pro Tools HD 2020 and Pro Tools HDX and HD Native systems.

Powerful and Flexible Solution

The Echo III Desktop has one x16 and two x8 PCIe slots ensuring support for a wide range of cards used simultaneously. Power-hungry cards are also easily managed thanks to the integrated 400W power supply and 75W auxiliary power connector for non-GPU cards. 

The unit powers on or off automatically with your computer and as a result does not include a power switch.

Ultra-Quiet Operation

Dual Nocta fans, ensure ultra-quiet operation rated at 17.1dBA and below the 20dBa ceiling recommended for use in recording and broadcast studios. Furthermore, these fans spread the spectrum of the noise it emits to avoid build-up at single frequencies. These fans are temperature-controlled to ensure efficient cooling of the system.

Thunderbolt 3 for faster operations

Using a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface ensures speed of up to 2750MB/s of PCIe bandwidth, enough to support 4K video capture at high frame rates as well as multiple audio DSPs, 25GbE and dual-port 10GBE network cards at full performance.

The Thunderbolt 3 protocol also lets you daisy chain five additional peripherals such as Audio interfaces, DSP cards, including one 5K display or two 4K displays. 

Thunderbolt 3 protocol also provides 15W of power for bus-powered devices and is backwards-compatible with previous generations of Thunderbolt.
