Crane Song to Introduce its “Quantum DA: Fifth Generation Converter Technology with the Debut of Avocet IIA and Solaris DAC New Products at AES 2015

October 13th, 2015 | Posted in News, newsletter

At this year’s 139thAES Convention in New York, Crane Song is introducing two new products which feature the company’s new Quantum DA fifth generation of D to A converter technology, the Avocet IIA discrete class A monitor controller and the Solaris digital to analog converter. The Quantum DAC uses a 32 bit converter and asynchronous sample rate conversion for jitter reduction with up sampling to 211 KHz. The reference clock uses a proprietary reconstruction filter for accurate time domain response; and with jitter less than 1pS, Quantum DA has the lowest published jitter values in the industry.

“There are several years of measurable analysis and subjective listening in the development of this technology; the Quantum series DAC is the most accurate that I have ever designed,” explains Crane Song Founder and Developer Dave Hill. “Typical jitter from 10Hz to 20 KHz from the internal clock is 0.055pS and from 1 Hz to 100KHz it is less the 1pS.” More »

API Heeds Call for Line Amplifier

October 13th, 2015 | Posted in News, newsletter

After many years of requests for an API line amp, the company is unveiling its newest addition to the 500-Series module line: the 535-LA line amplifier. Modeled after API’s console-based 325 booster cards, the 535 can both amplify and attenuate incoming and outgoing signals for ultimate flexibility–all while providing the trademark API warmth and tone. The 535 is useful anywhere signal levels need adjusting. The 535 can also add warmth to digital signals such as DAW outputs, and features an LED clip indicator.

The 535-LA also includes a balanced input, a polarity switch, a 20db pad for incoming signal attenuation and a three position toggle switch. The toggle switch allows for different output gain levels from the transformer, which is designed to drive long balanced lines with low distortion just as the 325 booster card does. Output gain range is from 6dB to 45dB. The 535 utilizes the discrete 2510 and 2520 op amps along with API proprietary transformers to create the unique, warm and reliable sound that fans of API expect.
