The Sonnet Echo I Desktop Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Card Expansion Enclosure enables Mac, Windows, and Linux computers to leverage their high-performance Thunderbolt ports to support a wide range of graphics and utility cards. Enhance storage expansion, add video or audio inputs, transcode data, or connect to high-speed shared storage and networks. This professional Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion system enables you to connect one full-length single- or double-width PCIe card up to 12.2-inches in length to your computer via a single cable.

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 17.1dBA – below the 20dBA 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.
