Thursday, 1 June 2000
Digital Audio Denmark's high-end AD/DA converter, the ADDA 2402 is, the company claims, the only converter on the market which is not affected by Aliasing Intermodulation Distortion - an 'invisible' distortion which affects digital audio equipment. Aliasing Distortion normally appears between 20 - 22.05 kHz (at 44.1 kHz sampling) and by itself is inaudible.

Richard Black has made a CD recording to demonstrate Aliasing Distortion, and can be contacted via e-mail:
