Lauded for its legendary digital to analog conversion, this unit showcases the no-compromise approach of its creator Dan Lavry to DA converter architecture, resulting in a unique design with unparalleled accuracy. As the product which introduced Lavry’s CrystalLock™ jitter elimination circuitry, the DA924 was designed from the ground up with custom components and broke through the limits of existing technology at its inception. Still in production today, newer generations of converters struggle to achieve its superlative detail and musicality.
Internationally, the DA924 continues to play a critical role in the work produced by many of the world’s most prestigious Mastering studios by providing accurate conversion of original master recordings for analog processing. The companion AD122-96MkIII is typically used to re-encode the processed signal during the creation the digital master. By using LavryGold converters in this manner, the losses normally associated with two stages of conversion are absolutely minimized; allowing the benefits of analog processing to be fully realized. Without a digital conversion of this precision, the finest details of a recording may go un-noticed and remain as artifacts to be discovered later.
