LA-100

 

 LA-100 is the first model of the audio product series of Lead Audio which is a top-of-the-line DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) plus Headphone Amp product in its class.

The rapidly expanding digital sound sources, when played through the existing PC sound cards and low quality CDP/DVDs, suffered a significant loss of sound quality due to noise and signal distortion and were unable to meet the needs of consumers who wanted high quality sounds. In order to satiate these needs, LA-100 boldly incorporated parts and techniques that are often only seen in high-priced Hi-Fis.

1. Utilization of audio parts that are used in expensive Hi-Fi products. (Burr Brown’s PCM 1796 DA Converter, German Wima Condenser for the power source area, etc.)

2. Circuits designed using Denmark’s high tech noise reduction know-how. (Collpitts oscillator , 2-step buffering clock)

3. In order to remove the terrible jitter noise that occurs when playing sound sources, the sample rate converting technique, which are found in high-end Hi-Fi products, was used.

4. Used DC coupled circuits for the output of high quality sound.

By using aforementioned parts and techniques, we were able to realize the best sound quality that cannot be compared with products in the same price range, and the product is designed from the customer’s perspective, allowing many different output method selections such as USB, CD, Optical and Coaxial in order for customers to enjoy high quality sounds.

 The front part was built on an aluminum base using sanding methods, black color anodizing, hairline production method to ensure a high-quality design and safety, and a user-friendly interface was realized through the use of micro-controllers  Furthermore, the external case was built using aluminum and SPC to ensure the durability against the product’s radiation of heat, vibration, shock and ESD (The KCC certification number on the back of the product guarantees this). 

 

The production of LA-100 has been discontinued for the upgraded 96KHz(LA-120) and 192KHz(NF DAC) USB versions.
