The stereo LavryBlack AD10 ADC is Ideal for a wide range of recording and broadcast applications. This unit builds on Lavry's reputation for extreme transparency with a number of innovative new features for highest-quality sound, flexibility and ease of use.

Lavry Black AD10 sees the introduction of Lavry Engineering's unique Digital Alias-Free Emulation™ modes. With this exclusive system, in addition to the default transparent mode -"Clear Mode", users can select the input characteristic of Tube, Transformer or both (Complex). The AD10 marks the first time that a Lavry Engineering unit has offered this type of option. With AD10, very high accuracy and transparency remain the starting point. However, the engineer can also add colouration to the incoming signal if he or she chooses.


Anyone who is serious about archiving their Vinyl collection understands it is a time consuming process and that only an exceptional ADC will yield results that make it worthwhile. The ability to accept -10 consumer level inputs common to most HiFi preamplifiers and phono preamplifiers and easily adjust the gain for level variations between disks makes the AD10 an excellent choice for this application.
