Following the huge success of Mini-Me, Apogee offers the latest addition to the Mini Series, Mini-DAC. This professional quality, 192kHz D/A converter, is the ultimate portable and compact solution for studio playback, reference monitoring, and premium home audio systems.
Professional, portable, affordable
With the venerable AD-1000 in mind, Apogee set out to make a series of next-generation, compact, high-quality converters that both audio professionals and home recording enthusiasts will not want to do without. And although Mini-DAC is built to go and priced to move (it's far less expensive than any Apogee D/A ever), it delivers a feature-rich D/A converter that is unrivaled in the pro studio world.
Precision Reference Monitoring
Are you using a massive mixer just to ride your monitor levels? Or do you have a great A/D but inferior D/A? Then make a little room for Mini-DAC. With comprehensive level control and a high-quality headphone output you can hear exactly what you are committing to while recording. And when it is time to mix down, Mini-DAC provides the optimum stereo image and the most faithful analog reproduction of your carefully recorded digital audio that money can buy.
Ultimate Listening for Audiophiles
Want to hear your music as it was intended? Then Mini-DAC is the way to optimize your home audio system. Connect your premium CD/DVD player to Mini-DAC and then out to your speakers for a superb sonic experience that your discerning ears will appreciate.
