Dangerous Audio designed the CONVERT Series converters from the ground up, utilizing cutting-edge digital technology coupled to a Chris Muth-designed analog circuit that delivers the signature Dangerous Audio sound: open, articulate and powerful from top to bottom. Loaded with innovative and useful features accessed from an intuitive front panel, the CONVERT-8 tops an elite class of dedicated stereo digital-to-analog converters in both sound and ease of use.
Chris Muth has designed the analog gear used to mix and master an endless list of hit records and classic reissues. Not only did he develop the audiophile-grade analog audio path of the CONVERT-8, Chris also meticulously fine tuned the low-pass reconstruction filters mandatory to implementing any DAC. These filters lie at the heart of how a converter will perform, and the CONVERT series has the jaws of top pros hitting the floor when they hear the big natural sound and the powerful, ultra-clear low-end.
Perfecting the Digital Side
Dangerous Audio rigorously refined the CONVERT’s JetPLL ultra-low jitter clocking technology until it surpassed the JET’s stated specs, resulting in the virtual elimination of jitter throughout the audio band and beyond. Gone are the sonic headaches and end-of-day fatigue brought on by long-term exposure to jittery digital audio systems. The CONVERT-8’s superbly implemented digital technology delivers such a natural, open and non-irritating sound that you’ll forget you’re even listening to converted 0s and 1s.
Reaching beyond transparency and accuracy, the sound of the CONVERT-8 is so open and 3-dimensional that many are saying that these are the most beautiful, natural sounding converters they’ve ever heard. Whether your focus is tracking, mixing or mastering, when you choose a dedicated stereo DAC, you’re choosing the unit you’ll trust to make all your sonic judgments, from choosing a mic to deciding how much limiting to use in mastering. You need your DAC to be honest, but you also need it to sound beautiful. With the CONVERT you get the uncanny combination of detailed information and delightful inspiration.
No menus, no cryptic multi-finger combinations to remember; just clearly labeled single-function buttons and one volume knob. However, the elegance of the CONVERT’s front panel belies its rich feature set, which brings a level of versatility not found in any other DAC.
Dedicated Volume Control with Hard-Bypass
Instant Input Calibration
Automatic Sample Rate Detection
On-the-fly Input Switching
If you’re ready for the world’s most articulate, open and natural sounding dedicated stereo DAC, The CONVERT-8 will deliver the beautiful truth of all your digital signals into the analog realm without ever tiring you out. Contact a dealer to hear the difference and we’re pretty sure you’ll become a CONVERT.
