Lynx Hilo Reference AD/DA Converter and Headphone amp System with USB$2,295.00
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. 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 3 in one unit – A/D converter, 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).

Pioneer is writing the next chapter in their 80 year long history of technical supremacy and purity in sound design. The flagship SE-MASTER1 headphone continues Pioneer’s legacy and commitment to authentic sound reproduction. Combining Technological leadership with visionary innovation, and featuring the industry’s first headphone engineered with a lightweight, 25μ-thick aluminum diaphragm treated with ceramic coating, the SE-MASTER1 enhances natural performance to deliver pure and dynamic audio to the listener.
Hand-crafted in Japan. The lightweight aluminum diaphragm‘s ceramic coating adds rigidity that results in high-resolution playback across all frequencies with minimum noise. The diaphragm’s edges are ribbed and made with a sturdy poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) film to deliver a smooth sound and reduce distortion. The SE-MASTER1 headphones incorporate a floating structure to minimize distortion, with rubber inserted between the base, housing, and hanger to help prevent vibrations and create better separation between the left and right channels to deliver an enhanced sound stage.
Innovative three dimensional ear pads adapt to fit your contours thanks to a proprietary design using two thicknesses of memory foam—thin at the front and thick at the back. The ear cups are covered with a soft leather-type material for extra comfort.
The headband and hanger parts use a super duralumin alloy to achieve a light, natural fit that lets you forget everything but the music you’re immersed in.
