Alpha Design Labs Launches Three New Products at CES, the Venetian, Suite 30-215
Esprit DAC Digital Preamplifier, Stride Portable Headphone Amplifier, and iD-30P Series iDock Cables
1/7/2012 • Tokyo, Japan • Furutech Co., Ltd., manufacturer of analog and digital audio and video cable plus a wide range of accessories, debuts several new products at CES, the ADL (Alpha Design Labs) Esprit DAC Digital Preamplifier, Stride Portable Headphone Amplifier, and the iD-30P Series iDock Cables. ADL creates quality products built to Furutech’s Pure Transmission standards at surprisingly affordable prices.
As the great jazz composer Sun Ra says, “Space is the place,” and audio enthusiasts all over the globe know that to be true. Most of us live in tight quarters and there’s little room for large, energy-depleting components. Plus a growing number of enthusiasts are using their computers to store and play music. But audiophiles and music lovers still want what they want, better sound and more convenience.
Last year Furutech introduced the popular ADL GT40 USB DAC/Analog Recorder. It’s the analog cousin of the more highly specified Esprit, a compact USB DAC/Preamplifier with digital as well as analog inputs. Completely control an analog, digital or computer-based system with superior sound while recording vinyl or any other analog or digital source to hard disk! The exceptional headphone amplifier drives 32 to 600 ohm ‘phones with aplomb. Read more about the ADL Esprit here.
The Stride, a Hip Younger Brother to the ADL Cruise Headphone Amp
It’s the age of personal, portable electronics; everyone carries their music with them. Accessories reflect your personal style. The Stride’s Black or Silver aluminum body is somewhat more low-key than the ADL Cruise’s mirror-polished stainless-steel and gorgeous carbon fiber body. But it still delivers thrilling sound when listening to low-bit-rate downloads or high resolution music files. Just connect your computer to the Stride with one of our matching ADL Formula 2 USB cables or the new i-D35SP analog stereo cables. When you’re on the road plug your music player’s analog headphone output into the line input of the Cruise and open the player’s volume to maximum and use the volume control on the Stride.
The sound of both is vivid, captivating, palpable and unheard of in this price category. The ADL Esprit and Stride Headphone Amp brings Furutech’s signature smooth, detailed clarity to music wherever you are! Read more about the ADL Stride here.
The iD-30P Series of Personal Audio Cables
You’ll need high-performance cables to connect to iDocks, headphone amps, home audio and even car systems. And there’s no better sounding (or hip-looking) cables than the iD30P series that comes in three versions to make every important connection you need.
The iD-30P series are no ordinary cables; they’ve engineered and produced with Furutech’s Pure Transmission technology and feature silver-plated α (Alpha) OCC conductor (28AWG) for minimal transmission loss and 24k gold-plated USB A-type or 3.5mm stereo connector straight or angled. The cable achieves top-grade noise isolation using double-layer shielding – aluminum foil and tinned copper – in a RoHS-compliant sheath. The main conductors are treated with Furutech’s α (Alpha) Process – a deep cryogenic and demagnetizing process. The result is outstanding, wideband, colorful and engaging sound.Read more about the ADL iD-30P iDock cables here.
