HiFi never went away.
It just never went wireless.
As designers, engineers and individuals who have spent our lives in
the music industry, we are not satisfied with anything less than perfection.
Were many of the same people from infamous NAD that pioneered
HiFi in the 70s, and we continue to relentlessly pursue innovative technologies
and faithful music reproduction. Were not just another computer
company. Were all about sound.
Digital audio got its start like any other new technology. It was amazing
and new - limited and imperfect - and naturally became the adopted standard
for the next generation. We love technology, but we love music even
more. To us, digital just wasn't up to par, so we decided to set out
and raise the bar on digital so that audiophiles and music lovers would
hear what they've been missing since digital audio came into existence.
Even 16-bit CDs have only about half of the audio spectrum that the
master recording holds, and that's a whole lot more than MP3s have left
in them. With more than a decade of compressed audio piping through
earbud headphones and cheap dock players, the time had come. The portable
players we all love have created a new way of listening to music, but
there hasnt really been much there to hear. Until now. Enter true
24-bit HD digital audio.
