Praise from a highly respected musician, producer or engineer is more valued than any marketing slogan, however slick and clever.

About our professional AD/DA interfaces

The great thing about Horus is that it doesn’t sound at all. I am used to my old converters being transparent but Horus is just more open and this is borne out by the measurements which are sensational.

When we tried Horus along with another bunch of top name converters, we realised it was actually murdering everything else!

We were absolutely amazed by the sound we heard from Horus. Compared with other systems we have used the dynamic reproduction was so detailed. It was free of any harmonic distortion and the extremely low noise floor was very noticeable on the pianissimo sections.

The dynamics and harmonics of the piano to the sighs and subtle nuances of Gino’s voice were all reproduced perfectly. This test was so convincing that we immediately purchased the whole fantastic system. We will be doing all our concerts in DXD from now onwards.

Now that I experienced, with the Pyramix Masscore, RAVENNA and Horus combination, how beautiful, transparent and dynamic digital audio in high resolution can sound, my strategy changed from adding compensation to controlled processing.

Recording to Direct Stream Digital has always been a must for us to deliver the most revealing and accurate sound. Taking DSD from 2.8 MHz to 11.2 MHz doesn't just step it up to the next level, it catapults it!

Pyramix is a powerful system with some unique features that are of great benefit to our archival work here. The background recorder feature, in particular, has enabled us to streamline simultaneous ingest setups down to a single record system that can record from multiple independent sources, allowing us to playback, edit, and output files as they’re being recorded. Upgrading to the MassCore configurations has brought an unprecedented confidence in the stability of our capture systems, even when combining high sample rates with high track count multitrack material. Thanks to the superb Horus and Hapi RAVENNA converters’ seamless compatibility with 384kHz and DSD recording, we are preserving the EMI Canada music archives with the best digital quality current technology allows.

The sonic quality of Merging Technologies' "Quad DSD" is impossible to fully summarize. It reveals enhanced signal information not as mere "data" but clearly rendered with relaxed musical clarity that approaches explicit analog delicacy.

Interfaces, Pyramix, NADAC


All installed and up and running. Am I crazy or is it more than just the chipsets that's different? Are the filters redesigned? I feel, especially in the top and bottom octaves that everything feels tighter and more defined, soundstage feels more definite and precise, it's a lot easier to pick out and separate low level detail...phantom center feels so solid now, it's effortless to separate kick from bass now. I'll have to live with them for a while, but I just recalled a mix, exact same settings, and it sounds noticeably better. I honestly wasn't expecting to hear all that much, but it's a significant improvement. Had my assistant set up a blind A/B for me and I picked out the new ones versus the previous generation prints every time. They sound amazing.

Horus immediately impressed me with the build quality and ease of integration with my DAW. The routing, the control, plus the on-board I/O just make a stunning package which is equally at home in my studio or on the road. It’s a perfect partner for my Pro Tools system, but it all wouldn’t matter if it didn’t sound right. No question, this is the very best front-end I’ve used and it will be a part of many, many projects to come!

About Hapi Professional AD/DA Interface

Every now and then I get a chance to spend a moment on my own music, and it’s a great refresher and reminder of how I got so obsessed with this work in the first place. In late summer I had a free day in the studio and on a whim decided to spool up the tapes for “National Laboratory”, from 2008. Originally it was mastered with a Studer A807 transport feeding some custom tube repro amps I had built, and Crane Song HEDD A/D converters. Felt pretty state of the art at the time, but technology marches on and small incremental improvements in the signal path add up in surprising ways. Nowadays I’m using a custom ATR-102 and @mergingtech HAPI A/D converters, and I was curious to see how much more I could get off those tapes. Turns out the answer is “a lot”. I’m really happy with this remaster, and quite shocked at how much more life and vibrancy was on those tapes than we could capture originally. I’m also feeling a little bit smug for mixing to tape in the first place, which made this possible :) #analogmastering #remastering #atr102

About MERGING+NADAC Audiophile DAC

Switching to DSD with the NADAC moves it to another level and reveals the absolute excellence of its playback quality.

I was taken aback by how natural the applause, whistling and other audience sounds were reproduced. The clarity and detail was as though the NADAC was being used with an external clock – although none was actually connected.

The Merging NADAC has an important tale to tell audiophiles – it shows us that what the pros really work with is really good quality equipment, after all.

MERGING+NADAC


During one of our demonstrations, I presented a music file created from a vinyl using Merging's analog to digital system. When the music began to play, audiophiles in attendance were amazed at the rich multilayered sound in the air. They felt as though they were listening to one of the finest quality vinyls. Based on our experiences, we are confident that NADAC has the ability to convey recording studio quality audio at home, even after decoding.
If you have not heard the sound that comes from the NADAC yet, please attend a demonstration and listen to the difference yourself!

Merging Technologies has brought the larger world of professional audio gear into our world of consumer high-end listening rooms, with all of the benefits thereof.

I installed the NADAC in my set up using the Merging Emotion player, with Windows7. The Swiss DAC passed the first tests with flying colours by working flawlessly and showing from the very beginning a peculiarity which, in my opinion, constitutes one of the best prerogatives: silence. I guess it is due to the Ethernet connection. Obviously I do not mean the silence level which you can also reach with a good USB connection. I am talking about an absolute black on which the sounds are focused like silhouettes on the background. Another peculiarity of this DAC is its unusual speed and dynamics. Additionally, this NADAC is a powerful critic in the case of a lousy recording, detecting all the deficiencies precisely.

Alan Sircom
Hi-Fi+,

MERGING+NADAC


In terms of features, the NADAC is a next-generation device, replacing the USB connection that has become the standard way to connect a DAC to a computer system. Instead, the NADAC’s Ethernet port, implemented in conjunction with an industry-standard software protocol (Ravenna), delivers network capability so that the NADAC can access music from a variety of computer-derived sources throughout the user’s home. This functionality should easily become the new standard; I think it will replace USB as the de facto method for connecting computer devices to an audio system. It works great.

Merging Technologies’ NADAC is a distinctive device compared with existing DACs, thanks to its innovative technical solution; introducing networking into domestic audio. In conclusion the performance of this DAC is excellent, particularly if using high resolution files in DSD format with the Emotion player. Taking into consideration the above, its price, below EURO 10’000 seems to me to be in a very good relationship with the quality of this professional DAC.

Giulio Salvioni

MERGING+NADAC, Emotion


In fact, the NADAC did wonders with this track: Podger’s instrument sounded like no mere facsimile of a violin. Instead, the sounds of the strings were so tangible that I felt I could reach out and wrap my hand around them. The highest frequencies were delicately rendered and sounded completely natural -- the antithesis of early digital. There were no hard edges, no overly crisp transients -- just beautiful sound.
