    SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO (SNR):
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to INSERT OUT: 110dB A-weighted, input impedance at XLR or 1/4" jack = 600 Ohms, Input Gain = minimum
    • GUITAR IN (unbalanced) to INSERT OUT: 99dB A-weighted, input impedance at 1/4" jack = 600 Ohms, Input Gain = minimum
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to SPDIF/USB OUT: 99dB A-weighted, input impedance at MIC or LINE jack = 600 Ohms, Input Gain = minimum
    • GUITAR IN (unbalanced) to SPDIF/USB OUT: 94dB A-weighted, input impedance at 1/4" jack = 600 Ohms, Input Gain = minimum
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to MAIN OUT (through ADC/DAC): 97dB A-weighted, input impedance at MIC or LINE jack = 600 Ohms, Input Gain = minimum
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to MAIN OUT (through direct monitor): 95dB A-weighted, input impedance at MIC or LINE jack = 600 Ohms, Input Gain = minimum

    TOTAL HARMONIC DISTORTION + NOISE (THD+N):
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to INSERT OUT: <0.001% Input Gain = minimum, 1KHz input signal, INSERT OUT = 5.7dBV
    • GUITAR IN (unbalanced) to INSERT OUT: 0.034% Input Gain = minimum, 1KHz input signal, INSERT OUT = 5.3dBV
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to SPDIF/USB OUT: 0.003% Input Gain = minimum, 1KHz input signal, DIGITAL OUT = -0.3dBFS
    • GUITAR IN (unbalanced) to SPDIF/USB OUT: 0.034% Input Gain = minimum, 1KHz input signal, DIGITAL OUT = -0.7dBFS
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to MAIN OUT (through ADC/DAC): 0.005% Input Gain = minimum, 1KHz input signal, MAIN OUT = 5.6dBV
    • MIC/LINE IN (balanced) to MAIN OUT (through direct monitor): 0.006% Input Gain = minimum, 1KHz input signal, MAIN OUT = 5.6dBV
