16. SONOMA MODEL ONE

HWM (Malaysia) - - GEAR -

The Sonoma Model One is an elec­tro­static head­phone sys­tem fea­tur­ing a new elec­tro­static trans­ducer called HPEL (High­Pre­ci­sion Elec­tro­static Lam­i­nate) that is claimed to of­fer im­proved sound. The sys­tem also con­sists of a dis­crete single-ended Class-A am­pli­fier/en­er­gizer that has an in­te­grated 32bit ESS Sabre ref­er­ence DAC (dig­i­tal to ana­log con­verter), and an AKM 32-bit ADC (ana­log to dig­i­tal con­verter). It re­quires an ADC be­cause it uses dig­i­tal sig­nal pro­cess­ing to help it pro­duce the ideal fre­quency re­sponse. Also, the peo­ple be­hind the Sonoma Model One hap­pen to be the pi­o­neers of the Su­per Au­dio CD, so it should sound pretty spe­cial. sono­maa­cous­tics.com
