The Ultimate Audio Analogue to Digital Converter:
The Dream AD-2 is the definitive music A/D converter, providing the most accurate rendition of
an audio event whether it be early music, classical, jazz, big band, a club mix or hard rock.
The AD-2 conversion system provides an audio stream of such exceptional quality that it will
be relied upon for years to come as the definitive source for productions on CD, DVD, Super Audio CD or other formats as they become available. It offers a wealth of sophisticated
features as well as high-performance, multi-rate A/D conversion for the most exacting applications in sound recording, mastering and broadcast.
The AD-2 is like two separate A/D converters, plus a digital processor, all in one: it can generate
two entirely separate output signals simultaneously. These can have different sampling rates,
different word-lengths - even use different noise-shapers. For example, you can output a 96kHz
/ 24-bit signal and a 44.1kHz / 16-bit noise-shaped signal at the
Apart from its breathtaking performance, the analogue front-end of the AD-2 includes many new
features: Analogue input sensitivity (and inter-channel balance) is software-programmable over
the entire range with 0.05dB resolution. Just as with the AD-1, the inputs are transformerless,
electronically balanced and galvanically isolated (fully floating), to ensure freedom from noise
pick-up and crosstalk.
