The Biggest News in High-End Audio?

I believe that this is a really big deal. Nouveau business model meets “old World” market. LH is also canny to be riding the headphones wave. The title of the CES presentation is bold – How Indiegogo Will Help Save an Old Dying Industry – is a stretch for me (but not insanely so).

  1. Nice looking device. I’m still waiting to see a test or study that shows such outboard DACs actually produce a better sound. All I’ve come across so far are salesmen making assertions based on price without any other evidence.
