24-bit/192 kHz audio resolution

The premium converters used in the UR-series deliver great audio quality, thanks to a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz with 24-bit resolution*.

Alongside great build quality, the sound quality of the UR models is refined by the inclusion of 24-bit converters. These accurately capture the detail of every recorded signal, ensuring that the fidelity of sound throughout the recording process is maintained.
