Enhance productivity and streamline your workstation with the robust Sonnet Echo I Desktop Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Card Expansion Enclosure. Mac, Windows, and Linux users can leverage their Thunderbolt 3 and 4 ports to support a wide range of graphics and utility cards.

An integrated Thunderbolt 3 interface enables up to 40 Gb/s data transfer speeds and includes a cable that connects to your device's Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 port to ensure proper operation and enhanced throughput. A single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot enables you to install a wide range of single- or double-width cards up to 12.2" long, equipping your system with graphics, storage, networking, or audio capabilities. An integrated 400W power supply includes an additional 150W of auxiliary power as well as energy-saving technology which powers on and off automatically with the computer. Dual ultra-quiet Noctua fans are rated at 17 dBA, keeping your connected devices cool while reducing distracting noise.

Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Enclosure

Echo I Desktop supports every type of Thunderbolt compatible PCIe 4.0, 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1 card available including video capture and transcoding; audio DSP; 6Gb or 12Gb SAS or SATA host bus adapter; 10Gb or 25Gb Ethernet; SSD storage; and other specialty types to your system.

Space and Power

The Echo I Desktop features one x16 PCIe 3.0 slot, enabling it to support a huge variety of cards, whether single- or double-width, low-profile or full-height. To support power-hungry cards, it integrates a universal 400W power supply and includes a 150W 8-pin (6+2 pin) auxiliary power connector for cards that require extra power (including the Avid Pro Tools | HDX). The Echo I powers on and off automatically with the connected computer, saving energy in the long run. With no power switch, you can't forget to turn off the system!

Dual Fans

Featuring dual Noctua fans, the Echo I Desktop is designed to deliver ultra-quiet operation so that it can be comfortably used in noise-sensitive environments. Rated at 17.1 dBA - below the 20 dBA ceiling prescribed for use in recording and broadcast studios - the fans spread the spectrum of their noise to minimize the impact at any single frequency. To further ensure negligible noise levels, the fans are temperature-controlled, automatically speeding up and slowing down smoothly as needed, and the enclosure is engineered to optimize airflow over the installed card to cool the system effectively and efficiently.
