The AD/DA converter is the heart of your digital recording system. On the front end, you have the A/D converter, which will turn the analog signal from your microphone and preamp, into a digital waveform that can be played back and manipulated through your DAW. Having a quality A/D converter is key to maintaining the depth of the the original source, where a lower quality A/D can leave your digital signal sounding thin or hollow, which is almost impossible to fix through digital or analog dynamic processing or EQ.

On the back end is the D/A converter, which is what converts the digital audio from your DAW back into an analog signal that we hear back through our studio monitors. If you are using an analog desk, it is very important to have the highest quality D/A conversion. If you are using a lower quality D/A converter, you will be sending a degraded signal to your console, which will be amplified by the analog circuitry of the desk.

Some interfaces have built in preamps, as well as A/D D/A conversion. These are a great option for a smaller studio, the price point is usually a bit lower, you won’t need to buy any external analog preamps, and the conversion still maintains a higher quality. For a more commercial recording facility, you may want to look into something that just does A/D D/A conversion, as these units aren't also trying to focus on the quality of the internal preamp, more attention is put onto the converters, resulting in much clearer, full bodied audio.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
James P.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
Noa L.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
