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).
