Hifiman Susvara Planar Headphone$6,000.00

- Weight : 450g
Harmonic Sound, Sweetly Voiced.
Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnets.
The advanced magnet design used for the first time on the Susvara, aims to be acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence which degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The result is reduced distortion, yielding a purer, more harmonious sound that is audibly so.
Unlike the sound waves created by a conventional magnet, the special shape of stealth magnet of Susvara enables the waves to pass through the magnet without generating interference.
Degradation of sound quality in a conventional planar magnetic headphone is caused by the magnets getting in the way of the sound wave. The same happens in conventional electrostatic headphone, the degradation of sound quality caused by the stator’s interference. A conventional dynamic driver’s frequency response can be altered due to distortions and vibrations across the diaphragm surface.
The driver’s incredible thinness, less than a millionth of a meter and extremely low mass means it can produce tremendously low distortion levels yet offer a highly dynamic response. By combining this diaphragm and “stealth magnet” technology, each working in harmony, the audio produced is of a remarkable tonal quality and clarity.
The “window shade” on the Susvara has been painstakingly optimized to avoid any resonant frequencies. This leads to a superior aural purity, tonally clean and unadulterated, yet provides practical protection for the ultra-fine diaphragm and additional offering and appealing visual aesthetic.
Special ergonomic design for superb comfort and extended listening.

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).
