Designed for the discerning audiophile, mixing, and mastering engineer alike, the Apogee Groove is a 24-bit 192 kHz USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier compatible with Mac and PC computer systems. The DAC is powered by your computer's USB bus and can be used with either headphones or powered monitors using a Y cable from the unit's 1/8" stereo output. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and built in the USA from premium aluminum, the device leverages an 8-converter ESS Sabre 32-Bit DAC chip in a novel Quad Sum arrangement. Both the left and right channels of the stereo feed utilize four digital to analog converters which are summed together to lower distortion and improve dynamic range.
It includes a Blue Mix-Fi are powered headphones that innovate on the traditional closed-back, over-ear headphone design with the incorporation of an internal all-analog audiophile amplifier. This allows the headphones to work well with low output sources such as smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Plus a Auray HH-UD2 dual headphone hanger is a lightweight (at 2.2 oz) studio accessory that can be discreetly mounted underneath a surface like a desktop or shelf to support two pairs of full-size headphones.
