Dangerous Music, Inc. has shipped their first units of the "DAC ST," a mastering quality, stereo digital-to-analog converter option for their Monitor ST controller.
The DAC-ST is the first available option in the line for the new Additional Switching System (A.S.S) one-rack space expander which can house up to two banks of two cards each, adding four additional functions switchable directly from the ST-SR remote.
Offering mastering quality on-board stereo D-to-A conversion and digital source switching for Monitor ST, the Dangerous DAC-ST is designed to deliver accurate D-to-A conversion, instantly accessed from the Monitor ST remote control. We're told that integrated digital source switching allows the user to monitor all digital sources through the same converter, which is crucial for critical listening, confidence monitoring and level matching.
All 4 rear-panel digital inputs on the DAC-ST accept AES or SPDIF formats and have active Thru outputs for routing these input signals to other devices. When the user needs to quickly hook up external units such as beat-boxes or keyboards that have an SPDIF output, the front panel dedicated SPDIF input is designed to avoid crawling behind a rack with a flashlight. DAC-ST can be calibrated to match your chosen studio reference level.
The Additional Switching System is sold as a chassis/power supply set with one or two user-selected options, each option having a specific price. Users can purchase a single option along with a chassis, then purchase a second option later and self-install that card; or purchase a chassis with two options already installed. Several other options are in the works including the "DAC-SR," a 6-channel DAC for surround setups, and a companion to the Monitor SR expansion.
The DAC-ST suggested retail price is $1199 and €925, and includes the integrated power supply unit and expansion chassis with an extra space for a second user-installable option.
The suggested retail price for Dangerous Monitor ST is $2199 and €1850; and Dangerous Monitor SR expander is $1499 and €1350.
