Sonnet’s Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 Dock
Connect to Your Peripherals with a Single Cable
Sonnet’s Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 Dock enables you to connect any Mac® with a Thunderbolt port to your peripherals through a single Thunderbolt cable (sold separately). Simply plug in your printer, keyboard, mouse, cable modem, external hard drive, display, headphones, speakers, microphone, and iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod®, and other devices to the Echo dock with their supplied cables, and connect your computer to the dock with a Thunderbolt cable. When it’s time to disconnect your computer, just unplug the Thunderbolt cable!
Sonnet also designed the Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 Dock with extra space, mounting hardware, and connectors for you to install one 3.5″ SATA hard drive, or two 2.5″ drives, either SSDs (solid state drives) or hard drives. Dual independent 6Gb/s SATA interfaces deliver maximum performance to support a pair of SSDs at up to 750 MB/s, or an HDD at its maximum speeds.
Add a high-capacity drive to use as your Mac’s Time Machine drive, to back up your computer’s data, or to store your ever-growing media library. Optionally, you can install a pair of high-performance SSDs for blazing-fast access to applications and files, or a pair of 2.5″ hard drives mirrored for redundancy.
4K Workflow Support, and thunderbolt connection at a distance
The Echo 15+ is the perfect docking station for connecting all of your peripherals, including the latest ultra HD 4K displays.
The rugged aluminum case is engineered to effectively dissipate heat and is more than sturdy enough to support the latest Mac Pro, a 27″ all-in-one computer, or a large format display up to 34″.
There are situations where placing a computer somewhere other than the workspace is called for, such as securing equipment inside a centralized machine room. Mount a Mac® mini in a Sonnet xMac™ mini Server Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion system or RackMac™ mini rackmount enclosure, or a Mac Pro® in an xMac Pro Server Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion system or RackMac Pro rackmount enclosure, and then install it into an equipment rack. Set up a monitor, keyboard, and mouse at the user’s desktop or workstation, plug in the gear to the Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 dock, and then add an Optical Thunderbolt cable to work at a distance with no worries.
The Echo 15+ gives you plenty of interfaces to choose from:
External Connectors: 2 x eSATA, 1 x FireWire 800, 1 x RJ-45 (Gigabit Ethernet), 2 x Thunderbolt 2, 4 x USB 3.0, 2 x 3.5 mm audio input, 2 x 3.5 mm audio output(front also optical), Power
