ADC8 MKIV 8 Channel A/D and D/D Converter

Professional 8-channel Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Digital converter for DSD (up to 128Fs/5.6MHz) and PCM (up to 24-bit/96kHz) formats.

The ADC8 MKIV is more than a mere converter. It's eight channels of the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Employing EMM Labs proprietary True Internal DSD Processing technology for analog-to-digital, and digital-to-digital conversion, the ADC8 MKIV delivers the most accurate, highest resolution recordings possible in both DSD and PCM formats.

A bold claim? Absolutely. Fortunately, you don't have to take our word for it. Here's what some of our customers say about the ADC8 MKIV:

"Ed's converter was the first DSD converter that was superior to anything I had ever heard. It is not an overstatement to say that Ed's analog to digital and digital to analog DSD converters have set a new standard of sound quality for digital audio. It turns out they are great PCM converters as well."

Bob Ludwig

"The sonic purity and transparency of the Meitner converters have been key in Telarc's success in using DSD technology to make the best sounding SACD's that can be produced. All of Telarc's pure DSD/SACD titles have been made using Meitner converters."
