ZOOM TAC-2 THUNDERBOLT AUDIO CONVERTER

Onstage playback of audio from your computer during live performance

Got some great sounds in your laptop? The TAC-2 can bring them to life—simply connect it to your computer with a Thunderbolt cable and then connect the rear panel TAC-2's TRS outputs to your mixing board or PA system. That's all it takes to turn your laptop into an instant live instrument.

Listening to high-resolution streaming audio through headphones or connected speakers

MP3s can sound good, but high resolution audio files—24/96 or 24/192 WAVs—sound way better. Now you can enjoy streamed high resolution files in full fidelity by connecting your computer to the TAC-2 via Thunderbolt and using the TAC-2 headphone jack instead of the one on your computer. Alternatively, you can use the rear panel balanced TRS outputs to connect the TAC-2 to your speakers.

Thunderbolt: The ultimate in high-speed connectivity

More than twice as fast as USB 3.0—not to mention twenty times faster than USB 2.0 and twelve times faster than Firewire 800—Thunderbolt is the interconnection technology of the future. Co-developed by Apple and Intel Labs, it allows signal to be transferred at an incredibly fast 10 gigabits per second, which means virtually no latency. Thunderbolt interfaces such as the TAC-2 are also unaffected by computer jitter (slight variations in timing), so there's no need to connect an external master clock source.

In addition, Thunderbolt carries 10 watts/18 volts of power (as compared to the 2.5 watts/ 5 volts carried by USB 2.0)—enough to provide stable phantom power. This also allows the use of high-end components such as the Burr Brown PCM4202 analog-to-digital converter and AKM AK4396 digital-to-analog converter in the TAC-2.

The TAC-2 performs 4-times upsampling during both analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. In other words, when the sampling frequency is set to 44.1kHz or 48kHz, the TAC-2 processes the signal at high resolution 176.4kHz or 192kHz. For A/D conversion, this means less aliasing noise; for D/A conversion, this means increased clarity and fidelity.
