Lossy, or Lossless Audio?
Unlike other analog speaker systems or Bluetooth speaker systems, the Cubik HD uses 24bit lossless USB digital audio streaming.
Most of smartphone speakers suffer from various noises in the analog signal path. Irrespective of how good your speaker is, poor audio signal sources prohibit the whole audio system to reproduce high fidelity sound.On the other hand, Cubik HD’s full-digital USB streaming can transmit a digital audio source without any loss to the speaker. As the signal path between your source device and speaker is purely digital, it is not influenced by any external noise.
Bit-by-bit perfect and lossless, noiseless streaming yields Hi-Definition digital sound.
|Palo Alto Audio Design’s proprietary digital signal processing technology delivers accurate, transparent high and mid range, and enriched bass in a small speaker enclosure. We chose full-digital USB streaming to provide maximum quality sound with battery charging capabilities for most of your personal devices.
High-quality Driver Units
The Peerless driver units, designed in Denmark, used in Cubik HD, is one of the best, and most expensive audiophile quality speaker units among small full-range transducers. As many audiophiles recognize, Peerless driver is well known by their speaker drivers found in many of the high-end audiophile speaker systems including the ones that costs several hundred thousands of dollars. As we didn’t want to sacrifice anything, we have selected the best.
Advanced Digital Signal Processing
To make a compact design object as possible with making it sound better than much bigger speakers was a challenging mission. It was achieved with the very best state-of-the-art digital signal processing (DSP) technology. With upgraded 24bit 192kHz signal processing, the Cubik HD delivers very deep bass and rich sound in this small speaker even without subwoofer. You can hear richer and natural bass much better than similarly sized speakers.
True Digital Amplification
We use true digital amplifier for the best sound quality and small size. Actually, the chief engineer is internationally recognized pioneer of true digital amplifier technology. The True Digital Amplifier is unlike any other regular amplifier. It takes in a PCM digital audio stream (i.e. via USB) and processes the data in a completely digital environment, until the final stage (just prior to the loudspeaker terminals). The result is ‘True Digital Audio’.
Industrial Design by Youngse Kim
Combination of beautiful design and state-of-the-art technology is a key concept of Cubik HD. Our studio chose this small cube-like design out of hundreds of stunning candidates. Industrial design of Cubik was done by Innodesign, a Palo Alto based design firm led by Young-se Kim, a globally recognized design celebrity. Combining this fabulous design with our engineers’ state-of-the-art acoustic engineering, The matching stand is also a remarkable. While being an important component of the industrial design, it helps the Cubik HD to deliver the best sound to your ears from any corner of the room.
