    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    Very reassuring indeed... it's one of the reasons I also decided to purchase the Hilo, hoping that at least one company would follow-through with it's promises of upgradability and firmware updates. Thus far, Lynx has been outstanding in providing a Thunderbolt interface card and a firmware and...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

      I have found the Hilo to be very true to the source, and in that respect (in my opinion), it outperforms many of it's competitors, some, grossly overpriced. What I can't quite figure-out is how it achieves a sense of non-fatigue(ness) which allows for extended listening sessions despite being...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    If Lynx would update the Hilo with a variable phono module that would allow users select various or manipulate the equalization curve, I would probably get a second one and use it specifically in my hi-fi. I can't overstate the usefulness of such a device. It would open up the Hilo in many audio...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    I must say I am very impressed with the Lynx development. Having been burned a few times by a companies that promise future upgrades that never seem to materialize, it seems our friends at Lynx have been busy expanding the capabilities of their hardware.   I too am looking forward to the...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    The RIAA curve that is standard in modern phono preamps is not the only curve that was used in phono recordings. There are a number of old LPs and 78 that were recorded using various equalization curves.   Having a digital phono preamp that would allow customization of the selected...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    If Lynx could incorporate RIAA eq software into the Hilo, in my opinion, that would put if far ahead, in a league of its own. If they could find a way to allow the end-user to manipulate the phono pre-amp eq curve to allow for the various recording curves offered throughout the years for 78 rpm...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    Yup! that sounds about right, Mike. I'm glad you're enjoying your Hilo, it's pretty amazing. It seems that we keep hearing the same descriptions over and over again regarding the Hilo's headphone output.   As you use the other features, you'll see what a real gem this little-guy is. Keep us...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    I've tried it with and without a phono preamp. The gain without a phono pre has been sufficient to get a digital recording but then getting the equalization curve dialed-in has been an issue. I use Diamond Cut Productions (www.diamondcut.com) software because of its capabilities. When copying...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    I have not heard the DA8 but it would be nice if someone could set that up. Hint, hint. I'd love to hear opinions.   For me, the Hilo has a truly accurate system going-on, without being harsh or polite. It's exactly what I needed and what I expect from a pro mixer, DAC, ADC. The fact that the...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    Yes... elaborate on which point?   1- Given the Hilo's portable size and battery operation capability, having a multi-interface card (USB, Firewire, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt) would only increase it's portability. Although, I guess you can always depend on someone, somewhere, having a USB 2.0...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    It's great to see that Lynx is dedicated to enhancing their Hilo (and other) interfaces. I would only hope that one day they will release a interface card with USB 3.0, Firewire, Thunderbolt and whatever else they might be able to throw in there.   I have to say, dollar-for-dollar, this...

    Little Dot MK VI / Little Dot MK VIII SE Owners Unite

    I have emailed him a couple of times but responses usually take about a week. I know he's busy so I find it easier and faster to get information from you guys, here.   Thanks for the info regarding the mkVI+.   Any ideas or comments about the mkIX, other than it's SE?

    Little Dot MK VI / Little Dot MK VIII SE Owners Unite

    I wish there were some official response at to how the LD mkVI+ has or hasn't changed. I am interested in trying out this amp but have put it off due to the rear-facing 1/4" headphone jack. I use a wide variety of headphones and the way my equipment is mounted, it would be a chore to reach...

    Lynx Hilo - new offering from Pro Audio company.

    Alright... it's been some time since getting my Hilo and I wanted to give a big tip-of-the-hat to Happy Camper for the recommendation and Scott for the great deal. I have used the Hilo in various ways, including location recording, as a DAC connected to my laptop, for recording LPs with and...

    Stax SR Lambda Information

    Yup, yup, yup... spend quite a few hours listening to the old Stax setup yesterday. Played everything from classical to jazz and rock. Thanks to everyone's suggestions. I've decided to keep the Stax headphones. They really do sound great.   Had my buddy over for a while and when I told him I...

    Stax SR Lambda Information

    Hmmmmm! so true... it's not like $250 - $300 buys much these days anyway.   Something to think about. Can't have too many phones.
