Lynx Hilo Reference AD/DA Converter and Headphone amp System with Thunderbolt$2,595.00
High end headphone amp and AD/DA converter for the critical listener.
The Hilo has a LCD Touch Screen, a Headphone Amp, 3 sets of analog outputs, 32/channel internal mixer and a LT-TB thunderbolt LSlot Card preinstalled. Available in Black or Silver.
It is impossible to compare Hilo to other two channel AD and DA converters. A unique product. Hilo replaces three different, critical components:
#1 Hilo is an analog to digital converter
#2 It is also a digital to analog converter. With most companies, these are two separate units.
#3 It is an independent headphone amplifier. The headphone section has its own, dedicated D/A converter. This provides two key benefits. First this allows Hilo to offer a headphone output with exceptional clarity and noise specifications. Second, due to Hilo’s internal 32 channel mixer, any input set can be routed to the headphone stereo output. This means that a mix that is entirely different from the analog outputs and monitors can be applied to the headphones.
- Hilo is a 4 in one unit – A/D converter, D/A converter, Monitor Controller with a dedicated D/A converter and a Headphone amplifier with a dedicated D/A converter.
- There are three unique sets of analog outputs: main analog output, monitor output (with analog volume) and headphone output (with analog volume).

Technics EAH-T700 Premium Stereo Headphones$1,200.00
The new statement of Technics headphones. Superlative musical experience right at your ears.
Enjoy wide-frequency sound reproduction from the latest high-resolution formats in outstanding clarity, with the new 2-way drive (2″ [50 mm] dynamic driver and 1/2″ (14 mm) super-tweeter) design.
Angled Driver System
With the 50-mm dynamic driver and 14-mm super tweeter mounted at optimal angles, the structure achieves natural sound orientation along with suppressing sound interference between the drivers, thereby achieving smooth wide-range frequency reproduction with good balance.
50-mm Dynamic Driver Employing Advanced MLF Diaphragm
The 50-mm dynamic driver, which reproduces the main frequency range, employs an MLF (Multi-layer film) diaphragm that has an iridescent gloss finish. Made of several hundred layers, the super-multi-layer film has very low levels of resonance, and reproduces high-purity sound. Realistic sound is reproduced by this uniquely devised configuration. In addition, the newly-designed magnetic circuits smooth the flow of magnetic flux as well as the airflow caused by diaphragm vibration. This achieves wide-ranging and powerful sound quality.
Hi-Res Super Tweeter
To realistically reproduce the elaborate soundstage and atmosphere unique to high-resolution sound sources when they are recorded, the ability to reproduce high frequencies beyond the audible range is crucial. The T700 is thus equipped with 14-mm super tweeters for the super-high-frequency range. The diaphragms employ aluminium with excellent response. In addition, a unique configuration suitable for minute vibrations realistically achieves the elaborate audio of high-resolution sound sources.
