The Convertors To Beat
by Rocco from Marlton, NJI purchased a UA - Apollo from a local gear store after hearing how great it sounded to me. Then, I had the opportunity to hear this unit in my friends studio and sold the unopened Apollo. I opted for... read more [+] the Hilo and a quad UA card; because that is the caliber of sound I was hoping for from the Apollo; I was personally disappointed. On to the Hilo, first the minor gripes. When the unit is connected to a USB hub on the same line as other peripherals (PC) there tends to be an issue in touch screen response and latency issues; easy fix if you require less port space, simply move other devices to ports further away. Honestly, I don't have much to complain about, but I felt I had to be thorough. Now for the positive aspects, the unit construction is very solid, the knob and housing are metal. From what I have read and (as communicated by Phil Moon of Lynx) the touch screen is constructed from a company that manufactures hospital equipment touch interfaces; so reliability and integrity should not be an issue. The most important aspect is sound quality and this is where the Hilo shines. The sound is pristine and very detailed with a 3 dimensional immersive quality that is unlike other interfaces I have experienced before. The Hilo sound is less colored with better detail than my friends Orpheus and Lavry Gold. I could go on and on about how fantastic it sounds, if you get a chance take a listen and you'll understand the hype. close [-]
