Dangerous has been building award-winning, standard-setting converters since 2002 when the Dangerous Monitor’s onboard digital-to-analog converter (DAC) swiftly became the industry reference. We’ve been asked over the years to build a stand alone DAC, and they’re finally here in the Convert series.
Eager to embrace the opportunity to develop a new and better DAC, we designed the Convert series converters from the ground up, utilizing cutting-edge digital technology coupled to a Chris Muth designed analog circuit that delivers our signature sound: open, articulate and powerful from top to bottom. Loaded with innovative and useful features accessed from an intuitive front panel, the Convert-2 tops an elite class of dedicated stereo digital-to-analog converters in both sound and ease of use. The Convert-2 goes beyond transparency – you won't just hear everything, you’ll hear it beautifully.
