AMBRE BY METRUM
ACOUSTICS (ROON ENDPOINT)
Metrum Acoustics is pleased to announce the introduction of
the AMBRE Endpoint for Roon, the first Roon Ready digital product from Metrum
Acoustics. The AMBRE makes its launch in April 2018 and builds upon our years
of experience in digital to analog converters. The AMBRE Endpoint combines high
quality components known by thousands of Metrum Acoustics worldwide and
combines it with the user-friendly interface from Roon Labs.
At Metrum Acoustics we are fanatic about building the best
Digital to Analogue converters because of our love for making digital music
Because of this dedication to perfection we can truly
appreciate listening experiences like ROON.
Roon looks at your music and finds photos, bios, reviews,
lyrics, and concert dates, and makes connections between artists, composers,
performers, conductors, and producers.
The AMBRE Endpoint is a great addition to any audiophile setup because of its high quality components and with an array of digital inputs including Coax, Toslink, and AES/EBU, as well as I2S the Metrum Acoustics AMBRE can serve as a hub for connecting digital inputs from television, CD, or other digital sources.
(local area network) input: Connect an UTP cable with your local
network. The Ambre is made as a Roon end point and cannot work
as a standalone device. The Ambre expects a working Roon music
server on the same local network.
Output: A 75 Ohm coaxial cable should be used to connect the
Ambre to other digital audio equipment like a dac for instance. The
coaxial output has a galvanic isolation and can handle a
maximum sample rate of 192 kHz.
digital output: When using the AES /EBU digital output a special
110 Ohms XLR cable should be used to connect the Ambre to other digital
audio equipment. The AES/EBU interface has a galvanic isolation and can
handle a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz.
output: A standard Toslink cable can be used to
connect the Ambre to other digital audio equipment. The max sampling rate
of the Toslink interface is limited to 96kHz.
I2S output: The I2S connection is probably the best way to connect digital audio equipment over short distances without intervention of all kind of interfaces like AES/EBU , spdif or Toslink. However still I2S is no international standard in terms of ruggedising the format or the connectors used. The I2S standard is optimized as an interconnection between Metrum Acoustics products but will work in most cases in conjunction with other gear. If your Metrum Acoustics product has the I2S option installed you can use a simple UTP cable to connect both devices.
