Apogee Electronics is pleased to announce the new 2×6 Special Edition AD/DA module for their flagship Symphony I/O Mk II. Designed specifically for mastering engineers, whose critical work demands ultimate sonic performance, Symphony I/O Mk II 2×6 SE offers the highest quality AD/DA conversion of any Apogee converter ever.

Symphony I/O Mk II 2×6 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 an astonishingly low THD+N of -118dB. Lucas Van Der Mee, Apogee’s Senior Hardware Engineer, comments “These are real measurements, taken with our lab test equipment and not just ‘data sheet’ specs. The new 2×6 SE will outperform just about anything in the market…at any price.”

The D/A stage incorporates the latest DAC technology, carefully optimized to offer mastering engineers the ultimate transparency to make critical adjustments with confidence. Whether you’re working with analog outboard gear or digitally in a DAW on your computer, the 2×6 SE retains every bit of warmth, punch and image in your recordings and signal processing chain.

Symphony I/O Mk II 2×6 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 2×6 SE configurations (Thunderbolt or Pro Tools HD) are available.
