Crane Song Interstellar Quantum AD Converter

Flexible AD Converter with acclaimed Quantum clocking technology, USB I/O, DSP based tonal saturation, and sub Pico superior imaging


Product Description

The Crane Song Interstellar Quantum AD Converter is a stereo analog-to-digital converter using Crane Song’s acclaimed Quantum clocking technology with DSP harmonic distortion.

Crane Song’s Quantum technology provides extremely accurate sub-picosecond jitter rejection which translates into superior imaging, depth of sound and detailed transient response.

Three DSP-based harmonic saturation controls offer a choice between Triode and Pentode Tubes as well as Tape saturation adding analog flavor if required. The Interstellar also provide 16-bit dithering.

On the back of the DAC you’ll find the inputs and outputs. The input options are AES, S/PDIF, Optical, and USB. The AES input connects over XLR, S/PDIF via RCA Phono, and Optical goes in on Toslink. USB allows you to connect the Solaris directly to your computer and use it as a dual-channel/stand-alone output-only interface.

On-The-Go Conversion and Monitor control. There will be situations where you find yourself away from your studio set up and you still need to work on mixes. For example, you may be on tour and you’re working on edits and mixes on the road. Or you find you need to tweak balances for live performance backing tracks. Whatever the case, Solaris gives you that clear image you’ve been working within the studio. Just plug up via USB and you’ve got your Crane Song sound feeding your portable rig. You can take it a step further and feed the backing track mix to Front Of House and deliver the pristine Crane Song sound to be part of the live performance.

Digital Source Switcher. You may have a few digital sources in your studio, DAW on USB, a playback device on AES, another one on S/PDIF, and a third unit outputting Optical. The Solaris easily switches between these various formats.

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!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

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.

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.

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.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
