Love at first listen

Amari offers the signature Antelope Audio industry acclaimed clocking and best-in-class 192 kHz conversion using the latest ESS (DAC) and AKM (ADC) chips. The unit comes with two independent monitor output pairs on XLR and TRS. Four analog inputs are available on the back panel – 2 on RCA and 2 on combo XLR. In addition Amari provides digital connectivity on AES/EBU, S/PDIF and TOSLINK.

Incredible headphone control

Antelope Audio have always equipped their units with multiple headphone outs. Amari brings this to the next level. Its 2 high power headphone outputs feature individual volume control. Each output allows users to select preferred output resistance which automatically adapts to your headphones impedance and power limiter settings in order to protect gear and most importantly hearing.

Mastering-grade conversion

Amari employs the industry renowned Antelope Audio clocking technologies and the manufacturer’s vast experience in analog circuitry and conversion. The mastering-grade audio interface offers 192 kHz, 24-bit conversion.

Top clocking

The desktop interface features the Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology pioneered by Antelope Audio’s Fourth generation, 64-bit clocking allows a stable and precise sampling of any incoming audio signal. Amari is also equipped with an Atomic Clock input (fully 10MX compatible) for maximum stability. An additional Word Clock input is also available.

Flexible control set

The control set of Amari is distributed between dedicated fast-access knobs and buttons for the most frequent controls, the impressive touchscreen display and intuitive software control panel. The touchscreen is used for the more advanced functions and volume levels visualization. With the software control panel users can route, save and load presets and employ the Antelope Audio FPGA FX library.
