Lynx Aurora 16

DA/AD Converters Comments Off

Lynx Aurora 16 photo da ad convertersThe Aurora 16 and Aurora 8 AD/DA converters provide world-class analog to digital and digital to analog conversion in a compact one-rack space format. With sample rates up to 192 kHz, Aurora offers wide, open, uncompressed and unequalized audio for studios, mastering facilities, remote recording, broadcast and production. Lynxs exclusive SynchroLock word clock offers extreme jitter reduction, providing clean digital audio signals for Aurora and other digital devices in the studio.

Aurora also avoids some of the limitations that other pro level converters have. Aurora does not have a noisy fan, does not lose channel count at higher sample rates and does not require costly analog and digital modules to achieve the units full channel count.

Aurora can be used with any audio content. Equalization and limiting functions, which can color or alter the sound, have not been added. Lynxs design provides accurate conversion, clear clean audio, wide imaging ? the sound you put into Aurora is the sound that you get out of Aurora.

Several interfaces allow Aurora to be used in a number of different configurations. LT-HD allows Aurora to be recognized by and controlled from a Digidesign ProTools|HD system. FireWire access is easy using the LT-FW. 16 channels of ADAT Lightpipe I/O is made available with the LT-ADAT. And Lynx AES16 and AES16e allow interface with a wide range of Windows and Macintosh computers.

Apogee Symphony I/O

DA/AD Converters Comments Off

Apogee Symphony I/O photo da ad convertersSymphony I/O builds upon the award-winning design approaches of Apogees X-Series and Rosetta Series converters, the Big Ben master clock and the Trak2 mic preamps. It also refines and updates these proven designs with fewer but more advanced components while optimizing their performance with efficient power distribution. These enhancements allow audio to travel through less circuitry, offering lower converter latency, more accurate clocking and even more transparency and clarity in your recordings.

Apogee’s engineers do not merely rely on specs and data sheets when selecting converter components, they listen. Each component is auditioned and carefully selected to best reflect the characteristics of the Apogee sound. Symphony I/Os audio path design is elegant and efficient, incorporating the most advanced opamps that offer better performance than multiple parts used in previous designs.

This design improvement minimizes the audio path circuitry and maximizes sound quality. And in the tradition of the X-Series and Rosetta series, the entire audio path is DC coupled, resulting in ultra flat frequency response and extremely low phase error.

Features
The culmination of 25 years of Apogee’s design excellence and experience
Next generation converter quality
Refined and updated circuitry with fewer, more advanced components:
Fewer components means a shorter audio path and more recording clarity and transparency
Lower converter latency
More efficient power distribution
Enhanced C777 clocking performance
“Sound Amazing” remixed and remastered
Optional mic preamp module
Front panel control of headphone and output levels, and mic preamp gain (mic preamps optional)

Lavry Engineering DA10

DA/AD Converters Comments Off

Lavry Engineering DA10 photo da ad convertersLavry Engineering introduces DA10, a new stand alone stereo digital to analog converter. The half rack unit can receive AES or SPDIF digital audio on XLR, RCA and optical link.

The DA provides three Clock modes. The preferred modes are Crystal Mode and Narrow Lock Mode, but the unit also offers a Wide Lock Mode based on an internal Sample rate conversion for listening at non standard sampling rates.

The level of the analog outputs (balanced or unbalanced) is controlled by an up?down switch and a 2 digit display. The potentiometer free discrete analog attenuator provides up to 56dB very high precision volume control in 1 dB steps.

A state of the art discrete headphone driver is capable of accommodating at ease even the lowest impedance headphones. The unit includes a polarity switch, and a Stereo-Mono switch, a feature aimed at mastering studios.

The optical input of the DA10 can be connected directly to most current model Macintosh computers, including PowerBook laptops, and requires no addition interface. The requirement for this connection is that the computer must have a Digital Audio Output. This is in the form of a 3.5mm combo jack that outputs either a wired analog signal or an optical digital signal. The connection can be made using either a Toslink to 3.5mm mini plug interconnect or a Toslink to Toslink interconnect with a Toslink to 3.5mm adapter on the end that plugs into the computer.

RME QuadMic photo da ad convertersRME’s Multiface is the world’s most popular mobile recording interface. Due to the large demand for microphone inputs, RME has now developed two high-quality professional microphone preamps, which make ideal companions to the Multiface in mobile recording situations, thanks to the option of battery-powered operation. Excellent signal/noise ratio, sophisticated discrete Class-A technology, and features like Low Cut and Phase switches make these units first choice even for studio use!

QuadMic offers 4 balanced microphone and line inputs via Neutrik XLR/TRS combo jacks. Each channel contains switches for 48V phantom power, a low cut filter, and phase reversal. Amplification can be set between 10 and 60 dB. LEDs for signal, clip, and activated phantom power complete the list of features.

The balanced line level output signals are available at the back of the unit via 4 stereo TRS jacks. The output reference level can be chosen between HiGain or +4 dBu, making the QuadMic fully compatible to RMEs ADI-8 series and all HDSPs with analog inputs. RMEs universal rackmount holder can be used to fit the QuadMic into any 19″ rack. The included professional switching power supply offers safe operation world wide, even when the power lines are weak or noisy.

The QuadMic offers a high-tech, state-of-the-art design – exactly what ‘Made in Germany’ is famous for.
