OVERVIEW

High-quality, 5.1 Surround D/A converter with pristine signal path and uninterrupted monitor switching.

The Dangerous Music DAC-SR is a 6 channel D/A converter that allows the engineer to monitor from and switch between any one of the four digital 5.1 sources without interruption. The source is selected from the Dangerous Monitor ST Remote and simultaneously routed to the balanced Analog Outputs. Only instantaneous switching between sources allows truly accurate comparisons. (“Am I A/B-ing the mix to the DVD, or to the DVD Player’s Converters?”) The DAC-SR solves this conundrum elegantly, while delivering the mastering-quality conversion that you’ve come to expect from Dangerous Music.

The Dangerous Music Legacy:
“Audio Integrity: non-negotiable.” This is the credo upon which Dangerous Music is founded. Conceived and designed by end users—not by engineers in lab coats--the results are products that resurrect dynamic range, punch, intelligibility and emotion. These high-fidelity, uncompromised signal paths are achieved by harnessing over 20 years of Chris Muth’s design wizardry; creator of infamous custom black boxes for world class facilities like Hit Factory, Masterdisk, Absolute Audio and Sterling Sound Mastering. Then the critical listening skills of golden-eared luminaries are applied, with the result being musical tools that fulfill the actual needs of today’s flexible computer based studio.

Why DAC-SR?
Instantly expand your Monitor ST-SR with zero audio sacrifice. (Additional Switching System Rack, Monitor ST, Monitor SR and remote required.)
Remember: The monitor path is the most critical component in any studio. Every decision from mic placement to reverb tail is based on what level of detail this device reveals.

Is Your Audio A Hostage?
Monitoring is the most crucial stage in the audio chain. An inferior system facilitates poor mix decisions by forcing you to compensate for it’s shortcomings. For example, if transients are choked by cheap components and off the shelf designs, the high end you added to the mix will spike like Mount Everest in the real world. When evaluating a new microphone, preamp or eq- how can you judge their performance without honest monitoring? The DAC-ST is the outcome of real world experience combined with mastering grade components. Don’t let a lesser monitor rig hold your audio hostage.

• Benefit: Noiseless switching provides an additional stereo input for reference mixes.
• Tip: Plug in your Mac’s optical digital out and hear what’s going on!
