Bring Back That Vinyl Feelin'

Consumer Audio Gets Its Groove Back with Cirrus Logic

by Amelia Dalton

Calling all audiophiles, music lovers, and DJs in the crowd -- this Fish Fry is for you! How can the audio quality of a million dollar professional mixing console be transformed into a mobile device? That may sound like an audio impossibility, but lossless high-resolution audio can now be held in the palm of your hand. In this week’s episode, Carl Alberty (Vice President - Cirrus Logic) introduces us to a new digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with a built-in headphone amplifier that aims to make music and audio as close to the original recorded source as possible. Carl and I discuss the technical challenges associated with hi-fi audio, and how the combination of advanced mixed signal technology on a limited voltage supply, digital filter design, and jitter reduction can get that vinyl feeling back into our lives and our mobile devices.  Read More
