Echo Digital Audio is proud to use only specifications of production units. While other companies quote specs of their converters alone in laboratory settings, the numbers you see on this page represent the actual unit in your hands. Since people often rely heavily on specs when deciding what gear to buy, we like to bring you numbers that really mean something.
