The industry-leading converters used in the UR-C series deliver exceptional audio quality, thanks to a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz with 32-bit resolution. High-quality conversion is a crucial first step to a great audio production and, with the UR-C interfaces, Steinberg’s designers invested a huge amount of time, effort and meticulous research in choosing the very best combination of components for outstanding analog to digital conversion. In addition to the great build quality of the UR series, the sound quality of the UR-C models has been refined by carefully adjusting components and incorporating 32-bit converters. These set a new standard for precisely and transparently capturing the subtlest nuances of every recorded signal, ensuring even the tiniest audio detail is maintained throughout the entire production process.
