ADL Cruise Headphone Amp
It's the age of personal, portable electronics; everyone carries their music with them. Accessories reflect your personal style and the Cruise is sure to create jealousy and envy wherever you go. It delivers thrilling sound to match its gorgeous appearance. Whether you're using iTunes for low-bit-rate downloads or high resolution music files just connect your computer to the Cruise 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 Cruise. For higher resolution all-digital signals simply connect the Cruise to your computer's USB port. The USB port charges the battery and you can listen to music while it's charging! Absolute Sound Review With the Cruise and Stride, Alpha Design Labs/Furutech has managed yet again to deliver a product that punches well above its weight class. With its excellent built in USB DAC, it can also do double duty as a home/desktop DAC/headphone amplifier, although its connectivity really makes it more of a road machine. It biggest strength is how it somehow manages to get the best from whatever headphones you use, exploiting their strengths while minimizing any weaknesses. A superb all rounder. Hi-Fi Choice World Review The Furutech Cruie is not just a pretty face. By shouldering the headphone amplification duties in a portable environment, you are easing the burden on your sound source, giving the sonic space and room to breath. While it can be a little ruthless in revealing a sound source’s inadequacies, the Cruise offers undoubted quality providing a level of maturity in sound presentation that will please all mobile audiophiles. Hi-Fi Choice Review The good new for anyone for whom the mere presence of a gorgeous carbon fibre chassis isn’t enough to guarantee purchase, is that the Furutech sounds impressive as well. Tone Audio Review Whether you enjoy the Furutech Cruise at home, at the office, or on the go its superb sound quality and long battery life will bring you closer to your media. You don’t need a $1,000 pair of headphones to partake in the journey. But the more time you spend with the Cruise may have you shopping for headphones sooner than later. C Net Review There's good sound, and there's high-end sound; the difference is in the details. The Cruise sounds clear, clean and remarkably transparent. Regarding the details, connectivity comes in two flavors, there's a 3.5 mm analog stereo line input and 24/96 USB digital input.
