Metrum Acoustics’ Digital/Analogue-Converters (DACs) are praised in the international hifi-community and press for their musical presentation ( http://www.metrum-acoustics.com/AwardsEN.html ).
Especially the purity of the sound, due to the absence of digital artefacts (“rubbish”), the natural sounding voices and instruments, the beautiful stereo image and the noticeably good separation of the instruments are consistently praised. Because of the unique qualities that define the DACs of Metrum Acoustics the listener is intimately included with the music.
With the goal of creating a very affordable, yet superior DAC in mind the designers of Metrum Acoustics have developed a new DAC, the ONYX By Metrum Acoustics.
It was an unprecedented challenge, which was eventually solved by using an entirely new chip, which has been exclusively developed by Metrum Acoustics and was first used in the PAVANE.
What more can you do after launching one of the best dac’s and Digital (Pre) Amplifiers available today? We are aware that our current flagship products Pavane, Adagio and Forte are hard to beat but at least one idea was not realized yet.
The idea of having similar high end sound like the ADAGIO but in an affordable version!
With that goal of creating a very special DAC in mind the designer, Cees Ruijtenberg, has during the past year developed a new DAC. It was an unprecedented challenge, which was eventually solved by introducing an entirely new chip, which has been exclusively developed by Metrum Acoustics.
What more can you do after launching one of the best dacs available today? We are aware that our current flagship Pavane is hard to beat but at least one idea was not realized yet. The idea of having a decent volume control to prevent a necessary pre-amplifier could improves performance dramatically. However, we also know that the way of introducing such device in the signal chain can also have a negative effect.
Metrum Acoustics is pleased to announce the introduction of the AMBRE Endpoint for Roon, the first Roon Ready digital product from Metrum Acoustics. The AMBRE makes its launch in April 2018 and builds upon our years of experience in digital to analog converters. The AMBRE Endpoint combines high quality components known by thousands of Metrum Acoustics worldwide and combines it with the user-friendly interface from Roon Labs.
