Who's Using The JCF Latte?

I'm starting to take a closer look at the JCF Latte for my main converters and was wondering who else uses the Latte.

For those who use the Latte, what converters did you come from?

Right now im using them as my main converters. Love them. I came from lynx aurora. I also have the lavry blue and ad8. But the latte is what you put in you get out.

Me too Bluesky, main 2 track ADDA for mix and stems.. Still got a lynx for multi DA though. Its the best conversion Ive heard, really does not sound like a converter, which is a good thing!! Sounds shockingly real, its incredible. Wait till you hear the depth, just like a tape machine

I will add it has a depth. Has some real kick ass mic pres. It is what you put in it really does not have a sound. It sounds very natural.

Cool!

Has anyone heard it next to a Mytek 8x192 or the Lynx Hilo?

I have the JCF AD-8. Not the same as the Latte, but I'm sure some things are similar. I also use the Mytek 8x192 for monitoring. And I used the Mytek for tracking before I bought the AD-8.

All I will say is that I think the AD-8 was a major improvement over the 8x192. And I really liked the 8x192. So you can imagine how much I like the AD-8.

To my ears, the JCF gear I own has less stuff in the way of the sound. And it's easier to perceive and construct the front-to-back depth of the mix.

Previously, I didn't care for any sample rate above 96k, but at 192, the AD-8 is just incredible.

What about DA? Do you still used the Mytek 8x192 for rendering?

Also the 8x192 has a ADC upgrade for $400 that is supposed to be a significant upgrade.

Let me put it this way: I don't care to upgrade the Mytek or get any other AD/DA. Because it won't top the sound of the JCF.

And the first chance I get to upgrade to 16 channels of JCF DA, I will do it.

I figged on the upgrade... I was just letting you know there was one!

So I take it your DA is the 8x192 at this point correct?

It would be cool to here how the Latte and the JCF DA8-V sounds next to the 8x192.

Keep us posted for sure!
