Reference-grade AD/DA converter with 24-bit, 384 kHz conversion and signature Antelope clocking
A REFERENCE-GRADE EXPERIENCE
FULLY EQUIPPED For mastering engineers and home audio enthusiasts who seek high-end sound quality for critical listening and audio archiving, AMÁRI is a reference-grade AD/DA converter with 24-bit, 384 kHz conversion and signature Antelope clocking. DSD128 playback, an easy-to-use interface, and 2 headphone outputs with user-adjustable impedance complete AMÁRI's unique profile.
384kHz, 24-BIT CONVERSION. ANTELOPE CLOCKING. An array of audiophile-grade converters and Antelope's oven-controlled crystal oscillator clocking with proprietary 64-bit algorithms ensure precise, musical conversion quality for mastering and home audio applications.
MULTI DAC TOPOLOGY AMÁRI offers best-in-class D/A converter performance by implementing a unique 8 DAC architecture (4 CS43198 chips per channel). This enhances the stereo image, expands depth perception and unveils all the musical details with an unmatched 138 dB dynamic range. Likewise, the headphone outputs feature a dual DAC architecture using one AK5578 chip per channel to boost the dynamic range up to 128dB.
EXPLORING NEGATIVE IMPEDANCE Negative impedance is no mere feature, but a philosophical concept. It permits a certain ambiguity of the final result and the way music reaches us. Music will always sound different, depending on headphones, temperature and even our mood, as mood itself is a kind of electricity inside the brain. Otherwise, digital audio would be just maths and digits.
17 STEPS OF OUTPUT IMPEDANCE AMÁRI's 2 high-power stereo headphone outputs (on XLR connectors) feature individual volume controls (capped at 20dBu max), with digital trim and adjustable output impedance - from -4.6 to 85.3 Ohm, in 17 discrete steps. These options let you configure AMÁRI for ideal compatibility with your favorite headphones, matching their impedance for best performance. AMÁRI's high-fidelity headphone drivers offer fully differential input per amplifier. It is a dual-amp design, optimized to eliminate possible temperature drifts and deliver differential signal quality. The headphone outs also feature dual DAC architecture for maximum performance.
