“A good DAC can open up music, allowing subtleties to come through and offering a new listening experience for music stored on a computer or streamed through an app. But a high-quality DAC can be expensive, often costing $1,000 or more. The Groove DAC from Apogee offers many of the upsides for under $300…The company, which has three decades of experience developing technology for recording studios, has built the device to adjust the sound to any type of headphones.”
Apogee is proud to have three products nominated in two separate categories for the 31st Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity awards. Apogee Ensemble, a 30×34 Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface for Mac has been nominated in the category of Computer Audio Hardware. ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital, the first lavalier microphones to digitally connect to iPhone, co-developed with Sennheiser, are included in the category of Hardware/Peripherals for Smartphones & Tablets.
“Apogee’s preamp reputation is second to none; this interface sounds sumptuous and there’s no doubt that it will turn the heads of guitar-led producers as much as those requiring more ‘regular’ microphone and line inputs via its neat and well thought- through re-amping capabilities.
