Audiobyte is a brand of Rockna Electronics, a manufacturer of high-quality audio equipment since 1999. While Rockna Electronics is set to pursue elite levels of performance with no compromise, the mission of Audiobyte is to close the gap between computer and high-end audio. They specialize in DAC’s and headphone amplifiers, built and developed from the ground up, taking a lot of technologies and insights from the high-end division of Rockna. Audiobyte’s Hydra Vox is an outstanding DAC and headphone amp, that can be taken to higher levels by expanding it to the Hydra stack.
Audiobyte’s mission is to finally close the gap between computer and high-end audio. Audiobyte will always be the promoter of new and exciting technologies. Years of extensive research and development resulted in some of the most refined technologies for an inspiring and insightful audio reproduction experience. In the Audiobyte line-up they implemented features that have been reserved, until now, only for the most extravagant audio hardware. Many solutions were built from scratch to offer a package that has little or no competition at these price levels.
Each piece they ship is made to order, hand built and individually tested. In 2019 they moved to a new research and production facility that expands their manufacturing capabilities and enhances control over the most minute details.
