Designed by Chris Muth and Paul Messick for reference-grade monitoring and audiophile listening, the Dangerous Music Convert-2 carries on the company's legacy of creating world class converters. From a ground up approach and with a zero-compromise attitude for sound quality, Muth took special care in the analog circuit design and low pass filtering of the 1 RU unit. The digital JetPLL ultra-low jitter digital clocking was refined by Paul Messick to a point of almost zero jitter. The 2 channel converter is appropriate for tracking, mixing, and mastering with a sound signature that has been described as both true and beautiful.

The rear panel of the device features 2x XLR-3M analog output connectors, 2x XLR-3F AES/SPDIF Inputs, 2x XLR-3M AES/SPDIF Thru connectors, 1x ADAT in (Ch 1-2) connector, 1x WC input, 1x WC output, 1x optical S/PDIF input, 1x USB Type-B input, 1x RJ-45 remote connector the Monitor ST, and 1x RJ-45 Remote thru connector for the Monitor ST.

Dedicated Volume Control With Hard-Bypass
Allows you to bring down the output level on the converter with the turn of a knob or bypass the control when feeding a dedicated monitor controller
Custom Metering
Uses a custom-crafted digital meter that provides peak-over-average calibrated to the input reference level with a "3-word-over" indicator to indicate when three consecutive samples have clipped
Instant Input Calibration
Offers -14, -16, and -18 dBFS industry standard reference levels that may be recalibrated with the push of a button
Automatic Sample Rate Detection
Features an "Auto" button on the front panel that will allow the converter to automatically detect the input signal sample rate
On the Fly Input Switching
Allows you to swap between multiple digital inputs on the fly from the front input panel buttons: USB, AES/SPDIF-1, AES/SPDIF-2, ADAT, and Optical S/PDIF (TOSLINK)
USB Uplink
Route the CONVERT's AES/SPDIF-2 signal back up through the USB cable and into your DAW session for printing. Additionally, you can easily switch between monitoring the original digital signal or the Uplinked signal, which means you can add finalizing plug-ins to your DAW's return track and quickly flip between the processed and unprocessed stereo signal
Monitor ST Connectivity
Allows you to connect the converter to your Monitor ST to bring remote control of unit's digital input switching
