A spectacular, mastering grade converter

Recursion, 02.04.2015
Not one to buy without research, I expected the Hilo to be great. Even with those expectations, I've been blown away by this bit of gear! It's a fantastic upgrade from my previous converters, with an incredibly transparent sound and next to no noise floor.

Additionally, I'm incredibly impressed with the touchscreen for interacting with the device. It makes the setup of any routing options a breeze, as well as any configuration of the metering. Furthermore, I had not expected the metering options available to be as great as they are. The real-time analyser that was introduced with the latest firmware upgrade has a display (though a little small) worthy of a unit much more expensive than the hilo, and the responsiveness it exhibits blew my mind!

I have no qualms about recommending the Hilo to anyone looking for a mastering grade converter. It's up there amongst the best.

Criticism at the highest level, ...

Micha100, 16.07.2012
Compared to GraceDesign m903, Hilo sounds a little sterile, which is not to mean worse. The elevations may be a little easier to judge than the m903. The overall sound of GraceDesign is more homogeneous and warmer on me and my configuration (AKG K 701, Genelec6010). (This result has been shared by 2 friends).
The headphone amplifier unfortunately does not meet the high expectations. Compared to LakePeople G100, it sounds thin. There is a lack of stage. The sound is very close to the ears and sounds almost tinny. (The m903 offers a further quality jump to the G100.)
The operation via the touchscreen display is good and reliable after familiarization.
Irritiert me, that from time to time overrides on the display were displayed, whose cause I could not determine and with a sound failure. Here helped then a reboot. Equally astonishing, when a USB input was activated without an input signal, there were overdrives at the output. While such a possibility is mentioned when a signal is mentioned that this happened without such a strange thing.
The signal from the digital output of my cheap, CD player occasionally led to very abrupt misfires. This also happens with the m903, but more rarely and less drastically. This may be due to my CD player, but did not occur with the FF400 from RME so far. This may be indicative of the sensitivity of these devices. The USB connection is however with my iMac problem-free and showed these misfires not.
The AD conversion I have not tested. It should be noted here that the internal routing is done at the digital level. An analog input signal therefore always runs through an AD conversion before it is output either digitally or analogously (after DA conversion).
The potential for some a very good upgrade of the signal chain, mainly because of the extensive routing possibilities. The sound is inconspicuous, as it should be. Smears on headphone amplifier.
