The Drawmer HQ is a combined precision high-quality monitor pre-amp/volume controller and DAC aimed at devotees to high-fidelity audio everywhere. Bringing together Drawmer's respected expertise for precision design in both the analogue and digital domains, the HQ is a critical listening device incorporating a highly accurate pre-amp and offering finely balanced volume control over a variety of analogue and digital input sources, with extremely low inter-channel crosstalk.
The HQ also boasts a state-of-the-art DAC for clean conversion of digital sources to analogue for reference monitoring. Designed to act as a central hub in a studio, mastering room, reference library or any high-end listening environment, Drawmer's HQ facilitates fast switching between sources and outputs in multi-speaker setups.
Analogue inputs accept audio on balanced XLRs and unbalanced phonos. In addition, separate stereo RIAA-corrected phono inputs are provided, so that turntables may be directly connected for restoration work or reference without the need for a separate phono pre-amp. The HQ also permits the connection of digital sources at up to 192kHz in AES format (via XLRs), TOSlink (on an RCA jack) or AES3id (on a BNC connector), and a standard USB 'B'-type connector allows audio to be streamed at lower rates from a laptop.
