Antelope Pure2 Mastering AD/DA Converter & Clock


The Pure2 by Antelope is a premium 24bit/192kHz AD/DA 2-channel convertor designed for high-end audio applications such as mastering. At the heart of Pure2 however, is Antelope’s pristine Acoustically Focused Clocking technology - essentially this makes the Pure2 an amazingly high value option, as it also functions as a high-end master clock too. For this reason, the Antelope Pure2 is arguably their best product. 


    • Antelope Pure2 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      FIVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPONENTS:

      - The famous Burr-Brown (TI) A/D converter PCM4222 is unsurpassed in terms of sound quality and performance.

      - The separate DAC chips for the left and the right channel tremendously enhance the soundstage and signal-to-noise ratio.

      - The dedicated headphone DAC not only provides greater convenience and routing flexibility, but the option to monitor a secondary source independent from the main outs.

      - Pure2 features Antelope’s high end analog volume control with a stepped relay attenuator allowing 0.05 dB precision for optimal monitoring transparency.

      - The flawless clocking in Pure2 is ensured by the same oven-controlled crystal oscillator technology from Antelope’s flagship master clock Trinity and the top-seller Orion32 AD/DA.
