Edmeston, NY (April 8, 2009)–Dangerous Music has unveiled its DAC-SR 6-channel, mastering-quality, digital-to-analog converter module with digital input switching for its Monitor ST/SR 5.1 controller.
The DAC-SR is the first surround sound option for the Additional Switching System (A.S.S), a 1RU expansion rack which can house up to two modules with the ability to stack two racks, adding four additional functions, all switchable directly from the ST remote.
“The new 6-channel DAC-SR is the perfect companion to the Monitor ST/SR surround controller for those users who need mastering quality digital-to-analog conversion with digital input source switching integrated into their listening environment,” said Bob Muller, Dangerous Music’s founder. “This way, clients have an easy path to creating their own custom controller setups with the Additional Switching System. The stereo DAC-ST module is a huge hit, and we’re about to ship the Uniswitch for handling video source and KVM switching for multiple computer setups in post-production and film-scoring facilities. More modules for the expansion rack’s open architecture will be announced in the coming year.”
The DAC-SR option delivers multichannel D-to-A conversion accessed from the Monitor ST/SR remote control. Integrated digital source switching reportedly allows the user to monitor all digital sources through the same converters, which is crucial for true A/B listening comparisons, confidence monitoring and level matching.
