Yeah but you’d need another DA like a Solaris to monitor

Would love to know your thoughts on how it captures a mix compared to the Mothership (and I think you may have also tried the Pure2) after you've had some time with it.

I’ll definitely wring it out next to the B2.
The Pure was kinda shiny had good width but ultimately I preferred the weight the B2 imparted.

I'm not quite sure what the question is but you can use only the to play and capture to and from analog but then you still need another D/A converter to monitor what you are doing.

Hi Justin,
i was thinking to connect
* RME 9632 spdif out > HEDD-Q > analog MBP ... then...
* MBP analog > HEDD-Q spdif out > back to RME
* for monitor : HEDD-Q AES > Dangerous Source
it will save $$ if this is possible

Sorry man but the Hedd has 1x DAC and 1x ADC, you need 2x DAC and 1x ADC at least in a simple Mastering chain or Mix bus chain, don't be fooled by the multiple inputs on the Hedd (like many other devices), whatever you use as input (spdif or aesebu) will engage the only DAC onboard, then you must have a Solaris or another DAC of your choice for Monitoring.

Thanks Giuseppe Zaccaria. One more thing.. can you use Triode, Tape and Pentodeat on both ad and da side?

Afaik Dave Hill of Crane Song is NOT involved with the design of the avid HD I/O.. Where did you get this information?

That said I do like the HD I/O sound, I do think they're great whoever designed them or built them.. (I think the former ones were built by apogee..not sure though, don't quote me on that).
Back to this thread:
I really love the passion and the sweat that Dave put into his products.. this new hedd quantum will rule! I do love his trakkers too!

Any further feedback on the Hedd Quantum? How does it compare with Burls/Lavry etc..?

Cheers

Hey. Can anyone tell me what he means in the video when he says “you can get this close to straight wire so u don’t feel like you need to EQ it after mix down”. What is straight wire? At about 1 min into the video YouTube
Thx!

It means it’s going to sound very close to the original pre conversion source,
IE you’re original pre AD direct monitor feed off your console vs the mix after it’s hit the AD back into your Daw(hopefully monitoring from a good DA)
Straight wire implying you don’t hear the conversion or it’s sonic artifacts.

Ahhh got it. Thx roundbadge. Excited to hear what you think when you have a chance to try it out. I’m interested in the Quantum and the Dangerous AD +. Although it’s only AD...

I'm also interested how the Pure2 would compare to this?
Also can anyone confirm if it is possible to convert Analog Inputs to SP/DIF Outputs, while simultaneously converting the SP/DIF Inputs carrying a different signal to the Analog Outputs?
Thanks.

Hm... kind of bummed, sweetwater saying their next shipment arrival is the 1st week of april?? I did place my order only 2 weeks ago, so maybe they just mean my individual place in line?? 6.5-7 weeks from now seems like a bit of a wait, at any rate

Well I ordered the Solaris in November from VK and they just told me it's finally expected to ship early March. I'm patient though. They're (a small operation from what I understand) working hard on a high quality product, so it should be worth the wait.
