MERGING NADAC

Free!

Advanced technology developed for F1 racing has dramatically benefited every modern car. Similarly, benefits gained from years of developing cutting-edge products for the professional recording community can be made available to the discerning audiophile. The MERGING+NADAC is not unique because of the components it uses, but in the care with which it was designed and the experience behind it. By introducing RAVENNA networking to the home, we not only remove traditional limitations, we totally transform the performance we can deliver.

Product Description

The MERGING NADAC MC-8 is a very handsomely sculpted, quite solid audio design.The MERGING NADAC is designed around Merging Technologies’ implementation of digital audio processing derived from their long experience in professional settings, which goes back into the 1990s. Merging has been particularly involved in the development of solutions for DSD processing on the A/D and D/A side of the equation. This include DXD, a 384kHz/32-bit PCM standard that allows for high resolution without the issues that DSD introduces to productions that require a great deal of slice-and-dice in the digital domain. (Analog manipulations are not a problem, since they can occur prior to the final feed to DSD.)

DSD is a remarkably clean way to handle analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversions, but does introduce some real challenges in the realm of post-production processing, if you have to do a lot of “fix it in the mix” sorts of things (for example, global volume adjustments, EQ’ing, cross fades, multi-track additions, and the like). PCM tools like Pro Tools make this sort of thing relatively nominal, but while DSD has digital audio workstations (DAW) like Sonoma for Single DSD work that stays in the DSD domain, Double and Quad DSD solutions are still in the wind. (Not impossible; just not out there yet.)
