Crane Song Debuts INTERSTELLAR at NAMM 2019

Crane Song (NAMM Booth #15821, ACC North) is pleased to announce the introduction of the INTERSTELLAR stereo ADC. INTERSTELLAR is a stereo ADC using Crane Song's acclaimed Quantum, sub Pico second clocking technology. Included in Interstellar is DSP emulation for Triode and Pentode tubes, Tape emulation, dithering to 16 bits and World Clock outputs, which allow Interstellar to function as a master clock.

When used as an USB interface, the SPDIF output can be used to connect to a DAC, making Interstellar a USB bi directional interface. In the USB mode the computer will set the sample rate and thus the sample rate of the Word Clock outputs. When the USB connection is not in use, the clock rate is set by the front panel controls.

The AES, SPDIF and Optical outputs are active and can be used at the same time as the USB connection. The level of the DSP functions is set by front panel controls.

From my understanding the HEDD192 is not able to ship in a while, so a new unavailable product? Just asking...

I spoke to Dave via email yesterday. He said they ran into an issue that should be resolved in the coming weeks. He also said the price should be around $2700 and available towards the end of the summer.

I'm in the market for a top quality stereo A/D converter with bells and whistles and this seems to fit my requirements, but I've been waiting all year for this now. Unless there is some solid news soon, it's going to get to the point I'll just get something else (probably Dangerous AD+). Come on guys, get this thing out there!

Get the Dangerous AD+ .. imo the better bang for the bucks

I dunno, switchable inputs would be handy, but I have other things which cover the transformer niceness and emphasis functions on my 2-bus. I would probably get more use out of the Crane Song processing and the multiple word clock outputs would also remove some hassle. But ultimately, if it doesn't exist then it's not going to do me any good!

The Quantum WC outs on the Interstellar are a big plus for me. If it does take too long though, may go for the AD+ and a Grimm clock.
