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 8 channel converter is appropriate for tracking, mixing, and mastering with a sound signature that has been described as both true and beautiful.
