Lavry Engineering, based out of Bainbridge Island, WA, has introduced the DA10 stand-alone stereo digital to analog converter. The half rack unit can receive AES or SPDIF digital audio on XLR, RCA and optical link. The DA10 provides three clock modes. The preferred modes are CrystalLock and Narrow Lock modes, but the unit also offers a Wide Lock mode for listening at non-standard sampling rates.
An up-down switch and a two-digit display control the level of the analog outputs (balanced or unbalanced). The "potentiometer free" discrete analog attenuator provides up to 60dB high precision volume control in 1dB steps. A state-of-the-art discrete headphone driver easily accommodates even the lowest impedance headphones. The unit includes a polarity switch and a stereo-mono switch, a feature geared toward mastering studios.
