HoloAudio Arrives in Australia
Jeff Zhu, Chief Engineer and Founder of HoloAudio, and the man behind a product that is quickly amassing a large following, is pleased to announce that the range is now available in Australia.
HoloAudio's famed May and Spring DACs are available for the first time via Brisbane-based Indie Hi-Fi. HoloAudio has built a strong reputation for unending attention to detail of both sound and build quality over recent years. Their flagship May DAC is an A+ Stereophile Recommended Component with glowing reviews from Herb Reichert and John Atkinson, Audio Science Review, GoldenSound, Twittering Machines and Ron Brenay of New Record Day.
The sleek styling doesn't stop at the striking black and copper CNC machined aluminium cases but goes much deeper. Steve Jobs was famous for wanting the inside of his products to look as beautiful as they did on the outside, and Jeff Zhu feels the same way with incredible design work going into the internals of every machine.
Reviewers have commented of May's “music without the fingerprints of the process” and “one of the best-sounding D/A processors I have tried”.
Holo has two pure DAC offerings, the flagship May DAC and the brand new Spring 3 DAC. Each comes in three flavours:
- Level 1 is the base model and offers an entry point hard to beat on a price to performance ratio.
- Level 2 is a step up with in-house capacitors for ultimate power filtration, improved sound quality, and a machined aluminium remote control. The enhanced USB module comes into play on the May DAC at this level and features the Titanis 2.0 FPGA circuit.
- Level 3 is the ultimate expression of each DAC and includes the highest grade components plus an ultra-premium O-Type Flatwire transformer, the heart of its incredibly low noise floor. The May also features 1.5mm pure OCC silver wire to replace the standard copper and the highest performing DAC modules with copper shielding.
The new Spring 3 also allows for an optional preamp module that provides a fully discrete and balanced relay controlled volume via the remote control.
The Holo May DAC starts at $6,290 RRP, while the Holo Spring 3 DAC is priced from $3,290 RRP. The range also includes the Holo Serene Preamp from $4,090 RRP, and finally, the Azure Pre and Headphone Amp, starting at $2,590 RRP.
Hugo Sharp, Owner of Indie Hi-Fi, told StereoNET:
I'm so very pleased to offer Holo Audio direct to customers in Australia. Holo has a proven ability to wow both the subjectivists and objectivists alike and the May DAC has pushed the bar so high on so many fronts that it's worth hearing for yourself just to reset your expectations for what's possible in digital audio.
To celebrate the launch of HoloAudio in Australia, there's an introductory offer of 10% off the entire range, but only until Tuesday 10th August 2021.
