There are certain specifications we do not publish, because they have little-to-no bearing on sound quality or performance. Some manufacturers tout these numbers, but we know from vast experience that bigger numbers rarely translate to better sound. Publishing these numbers serves no purpose other than to mislead or confuse the customer:

  • Sample Rate — bigger is not necessarily better unless latency is a concern, especially once you go beyond the frequency bandwidth of the input signal or of human hearing
  • Bit Depth — nearly all digital gear is at least 24-bit these days
  • Processor Speed means little, because most modern digital signal processors can do several parallel operations simultaneously. In addition, an elegant, optimized algorithm will often perform more efficiently than a poorly-coded, inelegant algorithm on a faster processor.

The specifications that do matter are published in our User Guides:

  • Frequency Response
  • Latency: note that an analog dry path means no latency
  • Total Harmonic Distortion
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

And of course the most important "specification" is how it sounds. Only you can be the judge of this.
