Stereo96 ADC is a two channel hi-end Analog to Digital converter for recording and mastering applications. The main feature of this converter is its outstanding sound quality which makes it suitable for the most demanding projects when preserving the original signal quality is a required.
The MYTEK Stereo96 series consists of two 1/3 rack units- the Stereo96 ADC and the Stereo 96 DAC. They are also a part of extended family of 1/3 rack units which also includes 192kHz capable converters, SRC and Studio Clock. Stereo96 converters can be used as stand-alone devices for variety of studio applications such as mastering, recording and playback, whenever the highest quality conversion is required.
Users choose Mytek converters primarily for their outstanding sound quality. The sound of Mytek converters can be described as "transparent". We design our converters to be as faithful to the signal as possible, rather than follow philosophy of some other manufacturers who offer "analog" or "tube" sounding converters. Mytek converters are closest to a straight wire, which is especially evident when used at full 24/96 resolution. Sonically they are equal or better than the most expensive mastering converters. Even when used in 16 bit mode, the Stereo96 converters produce 20dB (10 times) less distortion than typical converters found in budget recording equipment. Mytek Stereo96 ADC is an ideal addition to low cost recording interfaces. When connected via SPDIF input it provides two high quality recording channels ideal for overdubs. In addition it provides the source of high quality clock which improves the sound of the remaining interface channels.

Rob Tavaglione, Pro Audio Review
" Of the four, the Mytek Digital Stereo96 ADC achieved the most unique and desirable sound to my ears. It had the most accurate response to transients, whether they involved high frequencies or even super lows."
