ALC NetworX, developer of the Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award- winning RAVENNA technology, is pleased to welcome Canadian audio electronic experts, Eon Art, to the RAVENNA community. Based in Chandler, Quebec, Eon Art specializes in the design and manufacture of ultra high-end, high-fidelity audio electronics, and more recently – since the acquisition of VENUS Acoustic in 2017 – high-end hi-fi loudspeakers. The company also offers laboratory services for the audio industry and boasts the largest audio electronics lab in Canada. With a limited production run every year, Eon Art’s state- of-the-art products are highly sought after by audiophiles worldwide.

According to Eon Art founder, CEO and chief electronic designer, Stéphane Hautcoeur, joining the RAVENNA community is a logical step. “Our Tachyon digital audio converter (DAC) is a concentrate of the highest musical technology that offers fifteen independent power supplies, a dual conversion circuit, and eight microprocessors in a single box and an architecture featuring extremely short signal tracks based on rare, eight-layer double copper thickness circuit boards. It is therefore only natural that we use the RAVENNA protocol for the Tachyon Ethernet AES67-compatible network-based digital input, as RAVENNA is the unsurpassed state-of-the-art, standards-based audio transport technology offering highest resolution and precision. Anything else would simply not be compatible with our own standards.”

“Our DAC also features ultra high-end audio capacitors from Duelund and other exceptional brands, as well as a unique, easily interchangeable printed circuit board for periodic replacement of chemical capacitors. It supports analog inputs and other standard digital audio input such as Spdif, AES/EBU, USB for high end audio, and Bluetooth for functionality.”

Andreas Hildebrand, RAVENNA Evangelist at ALC NetworX, is pleased to welcome Eon Art on board: “I am delighted that Eon Art has chosen RAVENNA as their network-based audio distribution technology via the ZMAN OEM module from Merging Technologies. It is testament to the fact that when only the highest audio quality will suffice, the choice for audio transport has to be RAVENNA.”
