Weiss Upgrade from ADC2 to ADC2-FW

Firewire upgrade from ADC2
MFR# UP3-ADC2

Product Description

The Weiss ADC2 is the successor of our renowned two channel ADC1-MK2 A/D Converter.

The ADC2 uses state of the art A/D chips in our proven “correlation technique” configuration, which lowers converter imperfections.

The analog input stages are kept balanced from the input connectors throughout to the converter chips. A high quality microphone preamplifier is built in as a standard feature.

Supported sampling frequencies are 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz.

Output formats are AES/EBU in one or two wire technique, S/PDIF as well as Firewire for a direct connection to computers. (FireWire option not yet implemented).

Synchronization can be internal or external through AES/EBU or BNC (Wordclock).

The built in digital peak limiter allows for setting a generous headroom on the analog inputs and still get a full scale signal at the converter’s output.

A large bar graph shows the level to the A/D input, the output level and the gain reduction in the aforementioned Limiter.

The output wordlength can be reduced from 24 to 16 bits with the built in POW-R dithering. It is even possible to have one output running at 24 bits and another one at 16 bits. This feature comes handy when a safety copy to e.g. a DAT has to be made.

The analog input sensitivity can be set in 6dB steps via a relais controlled attenuator. An additional gain control is implemented in the DSP chip in the digital domain.

Both channel 1 and channel 2 are fully independent, except for the sampling rate and for the dither settings.

The AES/EBU sync input can be used as a digital audio input. This allows to limit and / or dither digital audio signals. The peak hold feature can be used to monitor a transfer and check for overloads which may have occured.

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.

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.
