Antelope Audio Pure2

As part of a multi-dimensional product unveiling at the 137th International AES Convention, leading professional audio gear manufacturer Antelope Audio introduces Pure2, a mastering-grade 24/192 kHz AD/DA 2-channel converter and master clock. Pure2 builds on Antelope Audio’s mastering legacy of the very successful high-end converter Eclipse 384.

The Pure2 enables users to realize unsurpassed digital clarity and analog realism, while offering a flexible set of connectivity options and extremely efficient and ergonomic software remote control. Pure2 also employs an all-new design that leverages best-in-class Burr-Brown converters and the same Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology present in Antelope’s ultra high-end Trinity master clock.

The unit also features Antelope’s proven low-latency USB circuit on both Mac & PC, which is in use in thousands of studios inside the Orion32 and the new Zen Studio. More than just a mastering converter, Pure2 comprises five distinct high performance components: An A/D converter with optimized overloads handling A D/A converter with dual DAC architecture A high-end headphone amplifier with a dedicated D/A A relay-based analog volume control for supremely accurate monitoring

A master clock with 4th generation of Antelope’s AFC jitter management With Pure2, clear and realistic audio quality is within reach. In addition to its first-rate conversion and AFC technology, the unit also features Antelope Audio’s pristine analog circuitry, which is driven by a proprietary, multi-stage linear power supply. When monitoring through speakers, Pure2′s relay-based stepped attenuator ensures exceptional transparency and perfect L/R balance, even at low listening levels.

Additionally, Pure2′s dual-DAC technology — with separate DAC chips for left and right channels —guarantees superior stereo separation and imaging. “As digital devices and software-based tools become more and more ubiquitous in recording and playback environments, advanced clocking and conversion technology is now a prerequisite towards getting great sound,” commented Igor Levin, founder and CEO of Antelope Audio.

“Pure2 puts world class mastering functionality within the reach of just about anyone, at a fraction of what it would have cost just three years ago.”

Pure2: The New Heartbeat of Your Studio Pure 2 back panel With Pure2, attaining immaculate audio quality does not have to be complicated. The device includes a highly intuitive software control panel (compatible with both Mac and PC) enabling users to manage all facets of its operation from a computer. Meanwhile, the front panel of the unit also includes user-definable presets for added routing convenience and efficiency.

Among the most exciting features of Pure2 are its unparalleled connectivity options. With several Word Clock outputs, Pure2 can function as the master clock for an entire studio and can also be locked to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock for even greater clocking stability.

Further, Pure2 can be connected via S/PDIF, TOSLINK, AES and USB, making it suitable for nearly any studio environment. Pure2, which is a perfect standalone mastering-grade converter for any studio and live application.
