Merging Technologies’ has sold 100 units of its Horus networked audio converter since it began shipping in April 2012. The milestone follows several successful months of recording by Swiss-based JDN, lead by Jean-Daniel Noir (pictured) and his colleague, Marie Delorme, who invested in a Horus each earlier this year. The duo frequently record players of baroque instruments, often in the same room as the musicians, monitoring on high quality headphones: “I asked Merging to pay attention to the headphone amplifier when Horus was being developed. These often sound very poor on other devices. I must say that they definitely listened to me because it is really outstanding and it also saves me taking a separate amp and all the cables and power supply ” said JDN’s Jean-Daniel Noir. “I have other top grade preamps and converters in my inventory so it is easy for me to compare these to Horus. We quickly found that the mic preamps were of a very high standard and because we have so many more channels in Horus, we save a lot of connections and cables. Using excellent microphones, we found that Horus accepts a huge dynamic. We have recorded many projects which have varied greatly both musically and in location and Horus has proven to be very versatile. Having AES/EBU, MADI, RAVENNA and analog all in one is a huge bonus.” Merging Technologies’ President, Claude Cellier remarked, “Jean-Daniel has been a great contributor to our developments over many years and it seems very apt for JDN to celebrate this first centenary with us.”
