Arista, a recognized manufacturer of professional AV solutions, announced its Stealth Silent Audio Workstation, featuring 8th Gen Intel i7 processors, combined with fanless silent operation and SSD storage. The solution is ideal for application environments that require an absolutely quiet computer to perform audio recording, editing, and related music/audio creation tasks. With a rich feature set and stellar performance, the Stealth Silent Audio Workstation is ideal for a wide range of projects, including any audio test bench and R&D activities.

The Stealth Silent Audio Workstation is equipped with an Intel i7-8700 six-core processor to provide plenty of CPU power to record musicians, compose film music, work with sound effects for TV or film, and play virtual instruments. Additionally, the system is populated with 64GB DDR4 memory that enables one to load large sample libraries. The system also has the option of two 1TB HDD (Hard Disk Drive) or SSD (Solid State Disk) that provides enough storage space to record live instruments or save a library of sample-based plug-ins. It supports a 4K display or up to three HD displays, which can be useful when running music software such as Ableton, Cubase, Pro Tools, or Sonar.

Likewise, the Arista Stealth Silent Audio Workstation offers performance optimized for demanding applications, like running audio test and measurement applications or the latest simulation software. With the Intel 8th Generation i7-8700 CPU processor powered by Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, the system delivers superior power and responsiveness to help one’s productivity soar. 

The workstation is also completely fanless for silent operation — making this an ideal tool for recording. The system is populated with an incredible 64GB of DDR4 memory that enables the loading of large sample libraries for complex projects. With support for 7.1 channel surround sound HD audio via a Realtek ALC892 Audio Codec, the Stealth Silent Audio Workstation is ideal for sound effects and multichannel audio composition projects. 

The Stealth Silent Audio Workstation is equipped with a 512GB Samsung 970 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD for lightning fast responsiveness during intensive workloads on workstations. The latest V-NAND technology and a new Phoenix controller in a compact M.2 (2280) form factor meet the requirements of the most demanding audio tasks. The 970 PRO combines the next generation PCIe Gen 3×4 NVMe interface with the latest V-NAND technology and a newly enhanced Phoenix controller to achieve read/write speeds up to 3,500/2,700 MB/s. Booting the Operating System happens in a blink of the eye. The Stealth Silent Audio Workstation also has one open M.2 slot for an additional high capacity / high performance NVMe storage capacity requirement.

The system’s storage capabilities don’t end there. The Stealth Silent Audio Workstation has an option for two additional removable 2.5-inch SSD drives that can be configured as RAID-1 for redundancy or RAID-0 for combining two drives into one large logical drive. Additionally, the system provides one Type-C and one Type-A USB 3.1 port, as well as four USB 3.0 connectors supporting the various speeds of USB audio devices.

“Our new audio workstation is the ideal solution for the most demanding audio tasks. With state-of-the-art processing power and storage, combined with whisper quiet, fanless operation, the Stealth Audio Workstation is the ideal tool for multitrack recording and editing, sound effects work, and numerous other audio projects. With support for multiple displays and Intel Gigabit LAN for network operation, this system makes a great choice for any audio production or post production work,” says Paul Shu, President of Arista Corporation.

The Arista Stealth Silent Audio Workstation ranges in price depending upon the desired configuration. Arista will demonstrate this workstation during the 2019 InfoComm Show in Orlando, FL – Booth #1161.
