Lynx Studio Technology Hilo

Two-channel AD/DA converter with 12 inputs, 16 outputs, headphone amplifier and LT-USB
MFR# Hilo USB - Silver

Product Description

The Lynx Studio Technology Hilo Reference AD/DA Converter System re-engineers and redefines the concept and functionality of the two-channel converter. Essentially three units in one: A/D converter;D/A converter; and headphone amplifier, Hilo offers connectivity, performance and control never before available. Newly designed differential analog stages and bi-linear converter topology provide industry-leading noise and distortion specifications and unprecedented transparency. Digital I/O is extremely versatile with support for AES/EBU, S/PDIF (via coax or optical) or ADAT. The Lynx LT-USB is standard, allowing additional USB I/O and computer connectivity.

Hilo is also the first professional converter with touchscreen operation and monitoring. All controls and signal routing is set up using easy to use menus. The setup page shows two stereo input meters and three stereo output meters. Optional screens show two selectable meter setsand even old-style analog VU meters. Future screens (updatable in the FPGA via download) will include further metering options, diagnostic operations and personalization.

The internal 32-channel mixer allows any input to be routed to any output. In fact there are three stereo analog output options. Line-out that supports eight standard trim settings, monitor-out with a volume control, and a headphone output, also with a volume control. In fact the headphone output has its own dedicated D/A converter with the option of a different mix than the line and monitor outputs.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
