Lynx Studio Technology has announced the Hilo Reference A/D D/A Converter System.

Lynx Studio Technology has announced the Hilo Reference A/D D/A Converter System, providing two channels of “mastering-quality” analog to digital conversion, up to eight channels of digital to analog conversion, a secondary monitor output, and a high-quality independent headphone amplifier, all in a compact half-rack size. Hilo also features a unique 480×272 touchscreen interface, easily adaptable to particular applications. Initial front panel controls support signal routing and mixing, sample rate selection, clock source options, levels, metering and diagnostic features.
Hilo’s digital or analog inputs can be routed to three separate outputs: Line Output (with 8 trim settings), Monitor Output, and Headphone Output. The Monitor and Headphone Outputs have volume controls, accessible via faders on the touchscreen or the single knob on the front. The digital section offers AES/EBU inputs and outputs with transformer isolated balanced XLR connectors; SPDIF input and output are available via transformer-coupled coax or optical (TOSLINK) connections; Optical ports for up to eight ADAT channel I/Os, which are completely independent from the AES/EBU or S/PDIF coax channels. Lynx’s LT-USB LSlot accessory (for computer connectivity), SynchroLock word clock and I/O are also included. In total, Hilo has 12 total inputs, 16 total outputs plus 32 channels, possible via its LSlot port. The unit’s FPGA powers its internal 32 channel mixer.
Price: $2,495 (suggested retail price)
