(April 7, 2021) THX Ltd., known for its audio and video certification programs, has announced the launch of its first consumer electronics device. THX Onyx is a mobile pocket-sized DAC/Amplifier designed to deliver incredibly accurate and clean audio.
Locked and loaded with an ESS ES9281PRO DAC and THX’s Achromatic Audio Amplifier technology (THX AAA), Onyx has the processing power and muscle to bring the most out of Hi-Res music. Featuring plug-and-play compatibility with iOS, MAC, Windows 10, and Android devices, it’s capable of driving demanding headphones. At the same time, MQA Certification allows it to fully render Master Quality Authenticated Hi-Res audio tracks.
“THX Onyx is the perfect introduction to high-performance audio for mainstream music fans who want the best listening experience on the move,” said Mike Jbara, CEO, MQA. “Consumers know that the THX brand represents premium entertainment, and we are proud that MQA has been integrated into the first-ever THX consumer product.”
Onyx is priced at $199.99 and can be purchased today through thx.com and razer.com (North America, Europe, APAC), and JD.com and tmall.com (China).
