Lavry Engineering Inc. is proud to announce the stereo LavryBlack AD10 A/D converter. Ideal for a wide range of recording and broadcast applications, the LavryBlack AD10 builds on founder Dan Lavry's reputation for extreme transparency with a number of innovative new features for highest-quality sound, flexibility and ease of use.
LavryBlack AD10 sees the introduction of Lavry Engineering's unique Digital Alias-Free Emulation™ modes. With this exclusive system, in addition to Clear mode users can select the input characteristic of Tube, Transformer or both (Complex). "The AD10 marks the first time that a Lavry Engineering unit has offered this type of option," explains Dan Lavry, President of Lavry Engineering. "With AD10, very high accuracy and transparency remain the starting point. However, the engineer can also alter the original signal if they choose."
In addition to a myriad of functions, the LavryBlack AD10 is accessible via user-friendly interface controlled by a single toggle switch. This switch utilizes multiple displays for heightened efficiency within the compact ½ RU enclosure. Other highlights of the LavryBlack AD10 include:
Internal Crystal 44.1, 48, 88.2, & 96 kHz sampling rates
Ultra-stable internal and external clocking
Greater than 117dB Dynamic Range (unweighted), 120dB (weighted)
Less than .0009% THD+N (20HZ-20kHz)
External Word Clock or AES sync for 32-100kHz operation
24 bit AES/SPDIF and optical outputs
XLR professional level analog inputs (+4dBu)
¼" instrument line level analog inputs (-10dBV)
Accepts balanced or unbalanced analog signals
14 segment digital meters w/Peak Hold
Meter displayed gain setting from 0 to 13 dB (1dB steps)
The optical output of the AD10 can be connected directly to most current model Macintosh computers, including PowerBook laptops, and requires no addition interface. The requirement for this connection is that the computer must have a Digital Audio Input. This is in the form of a 3.5mm "combo jack" that accepts either a "wired" analog signal or an optical digital signal. The connection can be made using either a "Toslink to 3.5mm mini plug" interconnect or a "Toslink to Toslink" interconnect with a "Toslink to 3.5mm adapter" on the end that plugs into the computer.
