San Francisco, California, November 11, 2021 – THX Ltd., a world-class audio and video certification and technology company, today announced that its THX Onyx™ has been named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for the portable DAC/Amp for high fidelity enjoyment of music, movies, streaming, and games from portable devices like a laptop or smartphone. This year’s CES Innovation Awards program received a record-high number of over 1800 submissions, out of which THX Onyx was named an honoree and winner. The announcement was made ahead of CES 2022, the world’s most influential technology event, happening Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas, NV, and award winners will also be showcased at the show in January. THX Onyx is offered, from Nov 9 to 29, 2021, at a holiday special of $149 at Amazon.com and at Razer.com.
Staying true to its mission to empower high fidelity for entertainment, the company unveiled its first direct-to-consumer product earlier this year with THX Onyx. THX Onyx offers improvements over traditional DAC (Digital-to-Analog converter) amplifiers by including THX AAA™ technology to ensure lossless, pure sound that empowers listeners to hear content the way the artist intended. THX Onyx has both THX AAA and ESS Pro DAC technology inside, as well as MQA support, creating the best-in-class portable DAC/Amplifier solution on the market today at this price for powering wired headphones. It works seamlessly across iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows portable devices to render crystal clear audio not possible without such a DAC/Amp.
“THX was founded on the principle that quality matters. We’ve remained dedicated for nearly 40 years to innovation that ensures whatever an artist creates can be enjoyed by the audience in the manner intended,” said Jason Fiber, chief operating officer, THX Ltd. “Consumers looking for the best audio experience over wired headphones may have found the quality is compromised, so we stepped up to deliver this flexible, high-quality, and affordable solution with THX Onyx.”
The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers, and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetics, and design.
