Drawmer has unveiled its HQ monitor preamp/volume controller and DAC. It incorporates a preamp that reportedly offers balanced volume control over a variety of analog and digital input sources, with low inter-channel crosstalk. The HQ also boasts a DAC for “clean conversion of digital sources to analog” for reference monitoring.
Volume adjustment and source selection take place via the pair of rotary controls on the front panel. A third, smaller, front-panel rotary control allows users to switch between two different sets of speakers for A/B comparisons, or allows the HQ to drive both sets of outputs simultaneously.
