It can support up to 16 channels of analog and digital input and output, including various channels of high definition quality analog I/O and other channel enhancements.

The applicable subheading for the 192 I/O multi-channel audio interface will be 8543.89.9695, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrical machines and apparatus, , not specified or included elsewhere in Chapter 85, HTS. The rate of duty will be 2.6 percent ad valorem.
