Apogee Electronics and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd have announced immediate availability of the new 2x6 Special Edition AD/DA module for the flagship Symphony I/O Mk II. They say that, designed specifically for mastering engineers, whose critical work demands ultimate sonic performance, Symphony I/O Mk II 2x6 SE offers the highest quality AD/DA conversion of any Apogee converter ever.
Symphony I/O Mk II 2x6 SE takes advantage of the latest advancements in digital and analogue audio technology offering two line level inputs with 124 dB (A) of dynamic range, THD+N of -116dB and six line level outputs with 131dB (A) dynamic range and an astonishingly low THD+N of -118dB.
Lucas Van Der Mee, Apogee’s Senior Hardware Engineer, told us, “These are real measurements, taken with our lab test equipment and not just ‘data sheet’ specs. The new 2x6 SE will outperform just about anything in the market ... at any price.”
The D/A stage incorporates the latest DAC technology, carefully optimised to offer mastering engineers the ultimate transparency to make critical adjustments with confidence. Apogee believes that, whether you’re working with analogue outboard gear or digitally in a DAW, the 2x6 SE retains every bit of warmth, punch and image in your recordings and signal processing chain.
Symphony I/O Mk II 2x6 SE is now available in Thunderbolt and Pro Tools HD configurations, or may be purchased separately to expand existing Symphony I/O MkII configurations.
