My Pick: Violet Audio ADP61 studio AV preamp decoder, $1,495 MSRP

What I Like About It: The Violet Audio ADP61 decoder was super easy to use — right out of the box. The ADP61 enables monitoring and decoding for all audio signals from stereo to 6.1 surround audio. Anyone can hook it up and get sound.

Its balanced outputs also make for easy integration into a large pro sound system, rather than just for “prosumer” audio systems built for family room sound.

I Would Change: Because markets exist outside of video gamers and home theater sound, it would be nice to see a digital loop-through that takes the input of TOS link (optical) and provides alternative digital in/outs, such as BNC and/or XLR AES/EBU, and visa versa. Otherwise, it tends to be a tedious process to switch audio in the digital realm to follow many of today's HD video signals, and keep time and sync.

Where I Used It: We rent this decoder for presentation of new video games in the gaming conventions and private corporate launches of video game manufacturers and programmers, which typically call for a larger sound system which the ADP61 easily interfaces with.

My Results: Violet Audio's ADP61 is a sonically superior choice to your average receiver for your house that's typically used to decode video game surround audio.
