The two sections of the SFC2 have the same feature set. They sport AES/EBU inputs and outputs on XLR connectors and work at the four standard sampling frequencies of 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz. The word-length at the output can be set to 24, 20 or 16 Bits. For proper word-length reduction, dithering must be switched on. Dithering in the SFC2 uses a second order noise-shaping process. The dither noise can be set to be automatically muted in music pauses.
Because the two sections of the SFC2 can be used completely independent from each other, the applications are manyfold. The sections can be used as a pair of up- and down-samplers (or vice versa), as a simple four channel sampling frequency converter or even just for dithered word-length reduction to 16 or 20 Bits without any sampling frequency conversion.
