Reference-grade USB AD/DA converter & headphone amplifier



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. 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 an 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.
