Lavry Engineering Black AD11 2-Channel MicPre/AD Converter Details
The AD11 stereo A to D converter offers USB connectivity, ideal for portable recording systems. Other features include built-in microphone preamplifiers with phantom power, large wide-range LED meters, and Lavryâ??s exclusive Digital Tape Saturation Emulation (â??Soft Saturationâ?). All settings are controllable from the AD11â??s front panel using a system similar to that of the companion D to A converter- the DA11.
Building on Lavryâ??s long established reputation of making the most accurate AD converters available, the AD11â??s no-compromise design offers substantial value at an affordable price. With converter and microphone preamplifier performance that exceeds other manufacturerâ??s stand-alone units, the AD11 combines musicality with functionality. The USB output is available in parallel with both XLR and RCA AES/SPDIF digital audio outputs, so more than one recording or monitoring device can be fed directly from the AD converter. The MicPre function and phantom power are selectable on each channel, as well as the Soft Saturation and +4/-10 level functions.
Like the previous LavryBlack model AD10, the AD11 has â??XLR-TRS combo jacksâ? for the analog inputs. When a balanced or unbalanced Â¼â? plug is inserted, 12 dBâ??s of fixed gain is automatically added to the front panel adjustable gain, to boost â??-10â? consumer level signals to â??+4â? professional level. Front panel line level input gain adjustment is available for each channel in 12 precise one dB steps. Additional gain in the range of 20 to 65 dBâ??s is provided for balanced low-impedance sources (typically microphone).
This makes it possible to record the â??directâ? signal from a guitar effects unit or keyboard at the same time as a vocal mic, with no more than the AD11 and a laptop! In addition to â??dual monauralâ? recording; extremely precise matching between channels makes the AD11 equally well suited to high quality stereo Mastering applications or â??trueâ? stereo recording. Whether itâ??s home, on location, or professional studio- the AD11 is the right tool for the job!

Fine product. Has the extra 12 Db gain thru the TRS inputs I needed. Good metering too. The multle function mini toggle switches are complicated. OK I guess for set it and forget it. Telephone support was good. They are proud of their products. The mic preamps are a good value. Worth the extra money over the standard DA10.
