    I'm getting into mastering and wanted some opinions on different AD/DA converters. I'm sure this has been discussed before but I wanted to know which converter fits a certain style of music if any. I know they all have their own characteristics but need some info before I go out and spend $$$. I am doing more dance electronic, hip hop, aggressive music where the client wants it LOUD. It will eventually go to vinyl so the over all level doesnt matter just the apparent loudness i guess. Do some converters sound better when they are clipped?? transparency or a certain sound??? That sort of thing:p any input please

    If you are gonna make square waves and aim for maximum density, why the heck do you care about how your converters sound?

    One of the things that makes a good converter is that no matter what style of music it gives you back what you put in. I suggest
    a couple brands.

    Very good converters.
