Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company. - Page 4post #46 of 7401/6/13 at 10:34amI was thinking maybe a month from now to make sure no problems unforeseen may show and gives some time to gather funds.

So I dropped another $$$ on DSD downloads, this time from Channel Classics. Again, I got one album I already have as a hi-res PCM file (Pieter Wispelwey performing the second Shostakovich cello concerto and the Britten third suite for solo cello), and one I didn't (Wispelwey and Dejan Lazic performing the Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and Britten sonatas for cello and piano).
The Britten is, I think, the most realistic solo cello recording I've ever heard. And the piano sound is just to die for.
The Hilo is threatening to blow a big hole in my wallet.

Is this the Britten DSD you're referring to? http://www.channelclassics.com/wispelwey-20003.html
That's one. This is the other.post #50 of 7401/11/13 at 9:36ampost #51 of 7401/11/13 at 9:43am
Congrats! I'm auditioning the Hilo this weekend and looking forward to comparing to my m903.post #52 of 7401/11/13 at 10:45ampost #53 of 7401/11/13 at 10:48am
I wish there was a thread in the Dedicated Source forum. This piece of gear definitely doesn't get the attention it deserves and I would've totally missed out on it if it hadn't been for another member suggestion.post #54 of 7401/11/13 at 11:23ampost #55 of 7401/11/13 at 2:19pmQuote:A few reviews will be just the ticket and it will be your honor to start one. You've beat me to ordering. Silver or Black?
For any interested that already has a USB/spdif converter, I've been given a price of $1725 for the unit without USB, $1850 with. It's being sold by a local pro audio store so PM if interested in a contact there.

I actually just pulled my LCD-3's back out after a few months of being in the closet. They are sounding great with the Hilo and Stratus, but I haven't used them with the Hilo alone. I'll have to try to dig up a 2 x XLR>1/4" adapter to give them a run.
This Hilo is really sounding great and has me completely satisfied.post #58 of 7401/11/13 at 11:01pmpost #59 of 7401/11/13 at 11:28pm
