AKM chips are very popular in pro-audio area

 

ESS also very popular.. Apogee, MOTU, Benchmark, Merging, Ayre, Mytek. Probably more I can’t recall.

MOTU gear I have is not ESS

 

Just because you don't have it doesn't mean it doesn't exist 😉

And what do these have as an ADC? Something that matters to us, when we listen to recordings?

 

 

My original quote to you was "AKM chips are very popular in pro-audio area "

 

I was just saying ESS DAC chips are popular in pro-audio too...

Sure, and 2L has used for example DDK converters which are TI. And now Merging.

 

But that's niche. Look at what Avid ProTools stuff uses and that's a little bit more of the market. How many percents of Tidal or Spotify catalog is made with Ayre ADC? I bet less than 0.1%.

 

 

Understood. But I think 'pro audio' gets thrown around too loosely sometimes.

 

There are guys on Gearslutz forum using Pro-Ject Pre-Box S2 DAC saying it performs as well as state of the art high priced DACs and is reliable for them.

 

So one may say Pro-Ject is not 'pro audio' but if its getting used in music making..
