This is the Ark Console configuration & pricing page.

Please find pricing and some configuration examples below.
The
Ark is all about configurability.

But we listed some standard configurations below.
To configure the Ark yourself, or for configurations above 32 channels, please check our
Custom Configuration page.


The
Ark can be ordered directly from us

Or feel free to
contact us for a quote or for more information about custom configurations.

Side note on production / orders / lead time.

The
Ark is completely hand-built, with an incredible eye for detail.
All modules, parts and components are checked, double checked and triple checked.

Assembled parts/modules come from different small manufacturers in Belgium, Germany and the UK.

Each of these manufacturers takes great pride in their work, and will go out of their way to make sure the part/module they assemble is 100% perfect.

The downside of this is that supplies are limited so we can only build a limited amount of consoles (or channels) a month.

Striving for the highest quality, we have no intention to change this production method, and definitely will not “go east”.

Depending on the amount of consoles we are building when you place your order, it may take months between order and actual delivery.

To allow us to better plan production, we offer a Pre-Order discount. The longer you order in advance, the higher the discount, the less you pay. Please contact us for details.

Ark example configurations.

Any combination of input buckets is possible.
8 inline channels with Mic Pre and EQ + 8 inline channels with Line / Group input and slots for 500-series + 8 stereo channels ?
16 stereo channels ?
32 channels with EQ ?

You decide.

Input channel buckets can be positioned on either side of the master section, in any configuration you like.

The practical limit is 64 channels (so 8 blocks of 8 input channels), which we think is largely sufficient for most uses.
(we can actually build a console with more than 64 channels, but that would require modifications to the busses and the power supply, which we’ll happily do on request).

Note that it is possible to expand an existing (installed) Ark8 console.
You can start small, and expand later. Adding extra buckets of 8 channels to an existing Ark8 console is probably easier than putting an Ikea cabinet together.

Check our
Custom Configuration page if you prefer to configure the Ark8 yourself.
