For over 16 years, the Lavry DA2002 has held the highest rank among converters on the market for accuracy, transparency, musicality, and dynamic range. The Lavry Quintessence performance exceeds it in all these aspects while providing additional functionality.
This DAC includes dual stereo XLR outputs (Main and Monitor) with 18 and 24 dBu peak output levels. An intuitive push-button system and rotary knob controls analog Volume adjustment for the Monitor Output with a resolution of ¼ dB over a 96 dB range, and fine calibration of the Main outputs by 0.1 dB steps for a ±0.7 dB range.
The Quintessence has two AES and one SPDIF inputs, which accept standard sample rates from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz. Switching between inputs recalls independent Monitor Volume settings from memory for ease of use and ABX comparison. Other features include BAL/UNBAL, Mono, Polarity Inversion, and personalized illumination settings.
