Apogee Introduces Special Edition 2x6 I/O Module for Symphony I/O Mk II

Apogee Electronics has announced a 2x6 Special Edition AD/DA module for their flagship Symphony I/O Mk II series.

Designed specifically for mastering engineers, whose critical work demands ultimate sonic performance, Apogee said the Symphony I/O Mk II 2x6 SE offers the highest quality AD/DA conversion of any Apogee converter ever produced.

Symphony I/O Mk II 2x6 SE takes advantage of the latest advancements in digital and analog audio technology offering two line level inputs with 124 dB (A) of dynamic range, THD+N of -116dB and six line level outputs with 131dB (A) dynamic range and a low THD+N of -118dB.

“These are real measurements, taken with our lab test equipment and not just ‘data sheet’ specs. The new 2x6 SE will outperform just about anything in the market...at any price,” said Lucas Van Der Mee, Apogee’s senior hardware engineer.

The D/A stage incorporates the latest DAC technology, optimized to offer mastering engineers the ultimate transparency to make critical adjustments with confidence. Whether working with analog outboard gear or digitally in a DAW on a computer, the 2x6 SE retains every bit of warmth, punch and image in recordings and signal processing chain.

Symphony I/O Mk II 2x6 SE is now available in Thunderbolt and Pro Tools HD configurations, or may be purchased separately to expand existing Symphony I/O Mk II configurations. Symphony I/O MkII 2x6 SE configurations (Thunderbolt or Pro Tools HD) are available for $2995 and 2x6 SE expansion module is available for $1895.
