Back in the day, the Hi-Fi experience required experience equipment. The barrier to entry is lower these days though, as audio technology continues to improve. You can even get high-end portable DACs now, such as the new THX Onyx.
Announced yesterday, the THX Onyx is THX Ltd’s first foray into consumer electronics. As mentioned, it’s a high-end DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) suitable for mobile devices. It comes with the THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier, which can provide enough power even audiophile-class wired headphones.
In terms of features, it has the Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) renderer that can deliver studio-quality audio. Another advantage the DAC has is its USB-C port, which allows it to be used with Android smartphones and tablets, as well as Windows 10 PCs. There’s even a USB-A adapter included, so you can use it on devices without a USB-C connector.
Currently, the THX Onyx is available exclusively through Razer’s online platform for USD 199.99 (~RM827). You can find out more about it here. With that said, would you be willing to spend this much to upgrade the audio for your mobile devices? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
