Drawmer Announces HQ Monitor Pre-Amp / DAC

Drawmer has announced the HQ, a new monitor pre-amp that combines an integrated DAC and a sophisticated control system. Drawmer claims that the current crop of high-end pre-amp designs use relay attenuators with high accuracy resistors to achieve the best balance between channels. The downside of this approach is the distraction of noisy ‘chattering’ relays which can be irritating but also reduces relay life. The Drawmer HQ incorporates an innovative solution to this problem, providing the feel and smoothness of a potentiometer but with the accuracy of relay attenuation.

Features:
» Precision relay volume control – accurate channel balance to 0.05dB
» Innovative (SilentRelay) volume management (>100dB attenuation)
» State of the art DAC (-100dB THD & Noise and -114dB DnR)
» Ultra low crosstalk (>100dB @20Hz to 20kHz)
» 4 analog and 5 digital sources, with individual gain setting
» Intelligent source select allows A-B comparisons
» Digital inputs to 192kHz 24bit with jitter reduction
» RIAA input for accurate replay of vinyl
» Switching for three different speaker configurations: Speakers A, Speakers B or Speakers A+B
» Remote operation and linking for multi-channel systems
» Dual Headphone outputs
» Normal output levels up to +18dBu balanced
» Hot output levels up to +28dBu balanced
» Internal Linear power supply with multi-stage regulation

No pricing or availability has been announced. More information on the Drawmer HQ.
