LH Labs Vi DAC, KICKER Lifestyle Products & Emotiva Audio Corp. CES 2016


  LH Labs will be stationed in Venetian suite 35-110 with a slew of new home and mobile/personal products, including two new flagship DACs, one of which, the Vi DAC, won an Innovations Award. Also shipping in Q1 2016 will be a new portable headphone amp, an advanced in-ear monitor, and, from the Starke brand, a new sub and soundbar.

LH Lab's Vi DAC's versatility is unmatched. It features five digital inputs: one USB, one TOSLINK, one AES/EBU, and two S/PDIF. It outputs your analog music in two different ways. First, it has two headphone outputs on the front panel. One 1/4" single-ended output, and one four pin XLR balanced output. Second, it outputs at line level through one pair of RCA single ended outs and one pair of XLR balanced outs. If you choose Vi DAC Tube, you'll get another pair of single-ended RCA outputs through the tube buffer stage. Additionally, if you choose the balanced tube output option, you'll get another pair of balanced XLR outputs. Vi DAC decodes PCM (the most common music format, the one used in your CDs and MP3s) with bit rates of 16, 24, and 32 bits, and samples rates of 44.1 kHz, 48kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz, 192 kHz, 352.8 kHz, and 384 kHz.

It also natively decodes DSD music files (a rapidly-growing digital download format that audiophiles tend to love), letting you choose between five different filter modes, with sample rates of 2.822 MHz, 3.072 MHz, 5.644 MHz, 6.144 MHz, 11.288 MHz, and 12.288 MHz. Vi's DAC's design has always been to utilize ESS' Sabre 9018AQ2M DAC microchip for its digital to analog conversion. New for 2015, the 9018AQ2M, boasts even better harmonic distortion characteristics than its predecessor, as well as a lower noise floor and greater dynamic range.

Emotiva Audio Corp. - Suites 30-222 and 30-224, Venetian Hotel
Emotiva is in the midst of its most aggressive product roll-out to date, with a new lifestyle series, amplifier line, and Airmotiv speaker series scheduled to ship in early 2016. They will even have a sneak peek at yet another new line that will debut in March, in addition to the BigEgo mini-DAC that shipped this quarter. In other words, there will be lots to see and hear, and Emotiva president/founder Dan Laufman can fill you in on what's in store the brand in the coming year.
