Stronger power supply and output stage for low impedance dynamic headphones (more than 20 Ohm).

EARMAX amps in general are OTL design (OutputTransformerLess). The actual output power and quality is depending on the load connected. Low impedance (low Z) headphones draw a lot of current and this requires a higher current power supply. The lower the headphones impedance is, the higher the power of the OTL amplifier is needed. The Brocksieper EARMAX Silver Edition headphone amp is optimised for this and comes with a very strong power supply. The SE is the identical design like the Brocksieper Anniversary model (just silver instead of gold hardware and no flightcase) known and prised for its outstanding performance among HiFi enthusiasts.

Arkhipov's Laboratory ($450-$2800)

Arkhipovs Laboratory Universal Dual Octal.jpg

Arkhipov's Laboratory various models.jpg
Arkhipov's Laboratory various models.jpg (561.54 KiB) Vist 10085 gange

The Arkhipov’s Laboratory offers a line of exclusive, hand assembled headphone amplifiers - with a choice of valve (tube), solid-state and hybrid configurations. Our design philosophy is aimed at achieving superlative audio performance at the power levels needed by high quality headphones. All our valve (tube) amplifiers use proven, classical circuit topology based on triodes or pentodes as well as combinations of both. Output transformers are hand wound and designed individually for each unit. This results in a brilliantly light, lively and open sounding amplifier having excellent dynamic range suitable for reproduction of all types of music - from the lightest instrumental and vocals to hard driving rock, electronic or jazz.


FEATURES

Arkhipov amplifiers cater for a wide range of headphone impedances from 20 to 600 Ohms. Some models accept loads down to 8 Ohms. Each unit has dual outputs using two standard 1/4" (6.35mm) jacks. Signal source for our amplifiers is line-level of 250mV rms or higher, from CD players, phono preamps, computer sound cards etc. Arkhipov amplifiers are constructed by hand in laboratory conditions. Metal chassis parts are professionally fabricated with a high-grade black powder-coat finish. The timber plinths are entirely made from solid timber with a choice of oak, cherry, plum or other quality woods. All timber parts are coated with a hard-wearing, satin lacquer finish. Wiring is point-to-point with teflon insulation used exclusively and all components are of the highest quality. Each unit is subject to rigorous inspection & testing during each stage of construction, and additionally, undergoes a week-long proving cycle including burn-in, performance & listening tests.

Our Top-Tier models are split systems with separate power supply and amplifier units. The power supplies use tube rectification as in our "Dual Series". The amplifier unit comprises two tube stages and the output transformers. The Monoblock Series with integral power supply and tube‑transformer outputs, make up our middle price range. Our Budget range consists of a number of popular hybrid (tube and solid‑state) in the MELO series and the fully solid-state ALTERNATIVE. These models are available in standard format (St) using PCB construction or the slightly higher priced (Lx) hand-wired versions with higher quality components.


RANGES

• Top Tier — UNIVERSAL DUAL OCTAL (STX), ULTRA DUAL OCTAL:

UNIVERSAL DUAL OCTAL and ULTRA DUAL OCTAL are two-unit headphone amplifiers using our third-generation output transformers and are based on previous two-unit series as well as the "Jubilee Series". Each set comprises two separate chassis with inter-connecting cable between the amplifier and power supply. A toroidal power transformer feeds the system with a tube type rectifier, DC filament supply, and bayonet type connectors on the cable between the units. This arrangement of the "Dual" series totally eliminates any electro‑magnetic influence from the power transformer on the amplifer. While maintaning our Laboratory's traditional split system designs, the new "Octal" series is constructed with larger external dimensions and wooden decorative panels having a more complex profile. Both units use the highest quality components, octal based tubes and world-class output transformers such as SOWTER and LUNDAHL. The UNIVERSAL DUAL OCTAL amplifiers use the 6L6 (5881) as output tubes and 6SL7 as the driver while the ULTRA DUAL OCTAL uses the 6V6 and 6SN7 types. Both amplifier power supplies use 6X5 rectifiers. This new range of amplifiers, while retaining the basic characteristics of previous series, have a more expressive middle frequency range giving a very realistic sound image of the instruments being played as well as their spatial disposition. Bass is solidly fundamental, while the treble is accurate without excessive brightness.

For personal audio use Arkhipov Laboratores have introduced a new version of the UNIVERSAL DUAL OCTAL STX range, specifically designed to drive electrostatic headphones made by the STAX company. This series uses a combination of 6L6 and 6SL7 tubes with LUNDAHL output transformers.
The power transformer uses an M4 steel core, coupling capacitors are JENSEN COPPER paper/oil while signal wiring is single-core silver of various cross-sections also by JENSEN. These amplifiers exhibit a warm, velvet-like reproduction over the full frequency range. Electrostatic headphones driven by these amplifiers give fully dimensioned and accurate response.


• Monoblock Series — UNIVERSAL KENO, ULTRA EL:

A defining feature of our Universal series is their balanced performance and compatibility with all music genres, using triode-connected pentode output tubes. The flagship of the Universal series is the UNIVERSAL KENO. It uses two double-function tubes, triode-pentodes ECL805 (ECL85, 6GV8). The power supply uses a 6X5 (EZ35) rectifier. This range of amplifiers apart from suiting all musical styles, is sonically incredibly light and clear sounding making listening to your favourite music a real pleasure.

Ultra series units on the other hand, employ output pentodes connected in ultra-linear configuration which gives their own special quality to the reproduced sound. The ULTRA EL probably does this best, using two pentodes EL84 (6BQ5) and double triode 6SN7. The sound is light and transparent with no confusion between instrumental & vocal content regardless of the scale of the piece. Middle range frequencies reproduce clearly & accurately with a sonic image that is charged with emotion. Particularly suitable for playing classical and or jazz music.


• Budget Range — MELO Lx/St:

This design is a two-stage combination employing a tube voltage amplifier input stage and transistors as current amplifiers for the output providing matching for the low impedance (20 to 600 Ohms) loads presented by headphones. At present these amplifiers are built using selected vintage 6SN7 tubes and point to point wiring in the elite LUX version (Lx) while the simpler STANDARD version (St) is built on printed circuit boards. Earlier we had made MELO amplifiers based on other double triodes such as 6FQ7, 6CG7 or 12AU7, ECC82, 5963, 6189. MELO amplifiers display the warm, richly endowed sound characteristic of tubes. At the same time they possess fast attack and magnificently detailed sound with well formed bass and bright trebles.


PRICES (november 2018)

Melo St - $450 // Melo Lx - $750-900 (depending on configuration; Audio Note Kaisey, Viahay, etc. in top version)
Monoblock UNIVERSAL & ULTRA - temporarily paused due to lack of suitable transformers
UNIVERSAL  DUAL  OCTAL & ULTRA DUAL OCTAL - $2000-2500 (depending on configuration and tubes; we use only vintage NIB/NOS tubes from 1940-60s) // UNIVERSAL  DUAL  OCTAL (STX) for STAX - $2500-2800

Pathos Classic Remix (£2400, HiDACevo+£450)

Pathos Classic Remix.jpg
Pathos Classic Remix.jpg (143.74 KiB) Vist 10085 gange

ClassicRemix, the new integrated amplifier of Pathos Acoustics, stems from the desire to make a deep renewal of the critically acclaimed and award-winning amplifier ClassicOne. The goal was high sonic performance, excellent management of the digital musical files, and high quality listening with headphones.

The result, then, is a hybrid device, Class A / B, with a fully balanced circuit and capable of providing a power of 70 + 70W (prudential). The preamp section has been realized around a pair of valves Electro Harmonix ECC88 - 6922 (double triodes) in a differential configuration, with the ability to adjust and store the listening volume of each input.

The digital demands are covered by a built-in high quality converter (DAC specially designed for ClassicRemix - optional) and a rich set of digital connections. HiDac is the result of significant know-how accumulated by Pathos in the design and implementation of digital converters for current and previous products. ClassicRemix is available without internal converter, or equipped with the current HiDac but at the same time it is ready to receive future technological developments (and new features) of digital boards that will be and on which Pathos Laboratories are already working.

For headphone listening Pathos from the planning stage on has set itself the goal to achieve a very high performance level comparable to that of a dedicated amplifier. Hence the choice to realize a real amplifier within the amplifier, with dedicated and strong power supply, a fully balanced circuit which exploits the signal coming from the valves preamplifier section of the ClassicRemix, which in turn ensures a low noise, a large range dynamic (120db) and a clean sound. Completing the picture a large bandwidth and a generous output power (greater than 2W of 32 Ohm) that allows easy and happy pairings with most of the high-quality headphones available.

The amplifier family - KHV, Professional and Basic Line - was developed and optimized on the high-end headphones SENNHEISER HD800. After the first tests with a variety of low-impedance headphones it appeared that with a tiny modification an equally outstanding interaction with other types was given. Consequently a new board was designed for the unmodified circuit, which received a small switch with the optimal setting for low-and high-impedance headphones to be made ​​from the outside. You recognize the new board by the blue EPCOS film capacitors in the cathode outlet.

The Basic Line design has a total of 2 tubes, and the Professional and KHV designs a total of 4 tubes — 2 triode pentode for Basic Line and in addition 2 stabilizer tubes* for Professional and KHV for gain-independent stable anode voltages of the amplifier tubes. As with the other OTL amplifiers of the house also a board-supported design with gold-plated tracks laminated on both sides of 70μ was selected. Along comes a grouted TRANSTEC voltage transformer used in toroidal winding and protection technology with Mu-metal shielding. Only high quality matched components, including a classic RUWIDO-Poti in cast aluminum housing (first series) and the legendary blue ALPS potentiometer were used. Gold-plated headphone jacks and gold-plated Neutrik RCA jacks complete the equipment. The circuit is absolutely secure and stable for maximum safety and very high tube life. All in all, a phenomenal transmission bandwidth and pulse sequence was reached.


• Construction: OTL-amplifier, board-supported, 70μ gilded double laminated boards
• Tube Placement: 14GW8 (PCL86) per channel, KHV and Professional additionally STV108/30 per channel
• Input Resistance: 25 / 50 kOhm
• Output Impedance: 300 ohms / > 20 ohms
• Frequency Response: 10 - 375.000 Hz - 0,3 dB

RudiStor RP8K-VT.png (461.94 KiB) Vist 10085 gange

This is something really new, although as an E-OTL it take advantages from our long experience in this kind of design topology, starting from the 2005 made RP4 up to now. In the years many thing are changed and we refined our design, this time we also made some really innovative solutions without go far from our tradition.

And for what we believe to be the best E-OTL you can dream, we have designed the best possible case. A minimalist look made from a single block of aluminum CNC engraved make the case a solid and fascinating unibody, with many advantage not only from look but even in general quality mechanical and electronics. No vibrations, heavy shield from external EM interference and great heating dissipation, are some of them. When assembled the RP8K-VT is like a solid metal brick.

From the VT input stage to power SS there are no coupling capacitor, this eliminate a contaminating component, and assure a transfer of signal in the best and less contaminated way. IF we consider the direct coupling plus the total absence of negative feed-back (a circuital solution that make easy the design and tuning but introduce negative effects like artifact and impurity at medium to high frequencies) then you can understand our great attention to sound quality.

How a relatively simple electronic circuit, like in 8K, we was able to obtain so great performances?
Simple: we try to make always the circuits as simple as possible near to the theoretical ideal circuit design. Less manipulation to sound, and better is the result. This in the real world is not always simple to obtain and the manufacturers prefer adopt solutions (like feed back or coupling capacitors between stages) that make life simple.
Our solution is : to make the circuit as simple as possible, and reach the high performance by an accurate design and an obsessive selection of components.

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium HP Integrated Amplifier ($4400)

PrimaLuna DiaLogue HP Integrated.jpg
PrimaLuna DiaLogue HP Integrated.jpg (194.8 KiB) Vist 3142 gange

The Finest Tube Integrated Amp you can buy without regard to cost that also shames purpose-built headphone amps costing thousands.


Features

• Heaphone amplifier - One of the best headphone amps in the world. And the only amp that lets you listen with either the warmth of Triode or the wide-bandwidth of Ultra-linear operation at the push of a button! Most tube integrated amps and preamps use a solid state op-amp chip for running headphones. Stand alone tube headphone amps will vary in quality like any other tube amp. Headphones are simply small speakers that require less power. Some amps will use smaller output tubes that groan to have enough dissipation to run power-hungry planar headphones. Other brands, including those costing $5,000 or more like Mal Valve, will use larger output tubes, then use a voltage divider network to drop the power down to an acceptable level for headphones. This is how PrimaLuna designed the HP. We simply took advantage of the fact that this is the best tube integrated amplifier. Now you don't have to pay for a separate state of the art headphone amp. The HP is the favorite of owners who use everything from Audeze to Hifiman to Sennheiser!

• Remote controlled Triode/Ultra-Linear Switching - Do you have some classic rock albums you used to love so much that have now ended up left on the shelf, un-played for years? How about jazz or classical recordings from the 60’s? Every audiophile has albums that they used to play, but stopped because they are harsh, brittle, or bright. There is a solution.
Triode and Single Ended Triode (SET) amps are popular for their warmer, fuller, and easy to settle into sound. But triode amps have limitations! Ultra-linear has more extension on the top and bottom, not to mention greater power. They have greater “pop” with a bigger difference between light and dark, and loud and soft. Having triode only is VERY limiting.
The best option is to have both triode and ultra-linear. PrimaLuna engineers in Holland designed an ingenious circuit that lets you change from triode to ultra-linear with a push of a button on the supplied remote control. No need to get up and stop the music. Make an instant comparison while you listen and choose what you like best for that song or album.

• AC Offset Killer - DiaLogue Premium is about goose bumps. The ones you get when music comes out of a background so quiet, you may say to yourself “Just how is this possible?” PrimaLuna custom-winds our own massive toroidal power transformers that are low in hum and EMI. But we wanted more. Our engineers designed the AC Offset Killer to lower transformer noise to a place no other manufacturer dreams of going, regardless of how bad your electricity is. The result? Sense of space. Texture. The resonance of an acoustic guitar or violin string that seems to trail on forever. The AC Offset Killer will amaze you.

• Point-to-point wiring w/Swiss made wire - You spend a lot of money on interconnects. So why have the signal go right from the RCA jacks or speaker terminals into circuit boards with copper traces so thin you can hardly see them? What’s high-end about that?
PrimaLuna employs Point to Point Wiring on all products. The entire signal path, including resistors and capacitors, is painstakingly hand wired with heavy-gauge cable by craftsman.
DiaLogue Premium models use Swiss-made, silver-plated, oxygen-free continuous crystal (OCC) copper with a Teflon dielectric in the critical signal path for superior signal speed and increased clarity.

• SuperQuiet Line Inputs - Input selector switches leak noise and signals from other sources, as they never turn off the other inputs completely. And, they deteriorate with age, requiring the use of cleaners. Many are mounted on the front panel requiring long runs of wires to the back panel inputs. These wires pick up stray noise from RF and EMI.
PrimaLuna has a better way. Instead of a switch, input selection is done using premium quality sealed relays mounted in the rear where you plug in your components. When an input is selected, that relay closes giving you the best connection possible. All the other relays are left open, so noise and signals from other sources can’t leak in. The signal path is now almost non-existent, so there are no wires to pick up noise.

• Adaptive AutoBias - What most companies call Auto Bias is actually "Cathode Bias"- A commonly used method that is cheap to make, and often found in guitar amps, but also $20,000 high end audio amps. It reduces the available power of the amp and runs the tubes hard, meaning shorter tube life and failures via "shorts".
PrimaLuna's Adaptive AutoBias is a true, smart technology employing an array of sensors to monitor tubes and make adjustments seamlessly in real time. More important, it is the ONLY circuit of its kind that is truly "adaptive" by addressing "tube pinch off" at higher volumes, therefore reducing distortion by over 50% and greatly extending tube life. Adaptive AutoBias is completely passive and NOT in the signal path. The result is low to no maintenance, long tube life, and the lowest possible distortion for amazing sound.
Adaptive AutoBias also provides unparalleled flexibility by allowing use of almost any tube on the market today. It even has a fine-tuning switch for EL-34 and KT88/KT120/KT150 tube types.

• Soft-start - Furthermore, the PrimaLuna Adaptive AutoBiasTM circuit is equipped with Soft-startTM, which powers the amplifier up slowly to prolong the life of internal components, including the tubes. This makes the PrimaLuna a joy to own and operate.

• Bad Tube Indicator - A small LED in front of each power tube lights up if the tube goes bad. The circuit then puts the amp into protection mode. With other brands, this may be when you have to break out the soldering iron to replace a plate resistor, and replace two or four tubes because your amp requires matched sets. With PrimaLuna, you just replace the bad tube (no matched tubes required), and turn the amp back on. No hassles, no headaches.

• ALPS Blue Velvet motorized volume control - tracks better so a defined stereo image is established and doesn't collapse as you raise and lower volume. And it will stay quiet, adhering to PrimaLuna's guiding principle of "Built to last a lifetime".

• TAKMAN Resistors - Easy to identify through their pink color, these premium resistors made in Japan are popular with those who rebuild and upgrade their gear. "Modders" love TAKMAN for their low noise and linearity.

• SCR Tinfoil Caps - Made in France, these capacitors are used in the critical signal paths and while they are expensive, the PrimaLuna team they could not be left out after careful listening comparisons with many different types.

• New front end design - using six 12AU7 tubes in total (3 per channel). The result is a wider, more linear bandwidth of the driver stage. The sound of the amp is much more dynamic, especially when music becomes complex. Bass control and the space between instruments improves greatly.

• Dedicated subwoofer output - If you're favorite sub only uses line-level inputs, such as the JL Audio subwoofers, the DiaLogue Premium Integrated makes it simple to use!

• Wide-Bandwidth Output Transformers - Output transformers are the most important part of any tube amp. They determine how low the bass will reach and how high the top end goes. 250 watts of power will have no top and bottom extension if the output transformers don't have the bandwidth. We use lower power to extend tube life, and bandwidth to give you slam. Transformers are the most expensive components in an amplifier, so manufacturers save money by using ‘off the shelf’ units available on the market. PrimaLuna output transformers are custom-designed, wound in-house, and massive. Our DiaLogue Class components feature the largest, widest-bandwidth output transformers we’ve ever made. One reason why no other brand sounds like a PrimaLuna.

• Custom Potted Toroidal Power Transformers - Power transformers generate two types of noise, magnetic and acoustic. That's why toroidal power transformers are used in the very best audio products. Compared to standard transformers, toroids radiate about 1/10 the magnetic field that pollutes music and obscures detail. Additionally, the absence of an air gap typically means toroids have an 8:1 reduction of acoustic noise. As transformers are the most expensive components in any audio product, manufacturers will even house cheaper C-core and EI-core transformers in an outboard power supply box with an umbilical cable rather than upgrade to an expensive toroid. The increased cost is significant, but PrimaLuna doesn’t cut corners. All PrimaLuna products use massive, potted toroidal transformers. PrimaLuna transformers are enclosed in a metal housing and then potted in a non-microphonic resin to further reduce noise and to protect the windings from moisture and deterioration forever.

• PTP-circuit - If the power transformer should overheat, this "Power Transformer Protection" circuit cuts primary power, allows the amp to cool down, then resets itself.

• OTP-circuit - The "Output Transformer Protection" circuit protects the output transformers in the event of a user error crossing speaker wires.

• +B relay - Replaces the plate fuse and works in conjunction with the OTP-circuit to protect the amp against tube failure. This method is less intrusive sonically and the relay resets itself once the faulty tube is replaced

• SmartWatts design for extended tube life - PrimaLuna's true-value, low stress design philosophy. Many manufacturers fudge on their power ratings, claiming power that is mathematically impossible. Every seasoned tube owners knows that 20 watts from a tube amp is a ton of power. What is really important is that PrimaLuna runs their power tubes up to 40% easier than other manufacturers. You can tell easily by putting your hand on top of a PrimaLuna amp. They run cooler than others. There is no reason to run tubes at their jagged edge. Why do manufactures do it?

Zesto Leto 1.5 Preamplifier.jpg (234.21 KiB) Vist 3141 gange

Basics Rule - My design philosophy is to focus only on the important components and add nothing that could compromise the signal path. The only active components are the vacuum tubes that create a warm musical sound.

Balanced Means Lower Noise - As a longtime audio engineer and producer, I’ve worked with a lot of professional equipment. I always preferred “true floating balanced” inputs and outputs because of their foolproof ability to isolate one piece of gear from the next.
And that means lower noise for a strong, clean and quiet signal.

Easy to Use - The Leto preamp will compliment most systems: tube, solid state or digital. It will work with single-ended and balanced input source or power amplifier combinations.

Focus on the Music - With the Leto in your system it will allow the sonic detail to come through, so you focus is on the music and the hardware will seem to disappear.

What is Leto? - In Greek mythology, Leto is the mother of Apollo.

Phatlab Phantom ($ 4,000)

Phatlab Phantom.jpg (213.22 KiB) Vist 7788 gange

Build a fully balanced tube amplifier from ground up
There is nothing like Phantom from design concept to practical implementation. Apart from our portable products, Phantom gains the benefit of unlimited power supply and spacious enclosure to include whatever ideally suited audio performance. The first idea came to our mind is a full-balanced topology. Not catering to market hype for balanced amplifier, but to leverage the advantage of balanced topology leading to ultimate sound quality. Instead of a balanced to single-ended conversion at input and a single-ended to balanced conversion at output, we apply a much tedious and costly four-amplifier scheme for a true balanced stereo amplifiers. The decision follows by many design challenges when we determined to make it as ideally as we planned.

A high precision 4-channel volume control
The first challenge is how to make a 4-channel volume control with minimum tolerance. In a single-ended counterpart, a two-channel volume potentiometer with 10% tolerance is widely accepted, even though we usually found imbalance at low volume level between channels. However, using a 4-gang potentiometer in a balanced design, the huge tolerance may easily deteriorate the advantage we gain from balanced topology. One simple fact is the common mode rejection is seriously degraded by as much as the tolerance between gangs.
We use R-2R resistor ladders as volume control unit for zero tolerance between channels. The signal path is true analog with digital interface, so there is no signal imbalance among them. And the user interface is thoughtfully maintained the analog touch. The volume control is almost zero tolerance, high resolution even at lowest volume level and intuitive as traditional potentiometer.

Solid Chassis and Suspended Tubes Module
We have gained many experiences from portable amplifiers and well aware of the vulnerability of directly-heated tube (DHT) to vibration. By leveraging the luxury of enclosure space. There are several directions to stabilize the chassis and isolate vibration from tubes. One is an extremely solid and heft enclosure, though an 10kg+ chassis may beyond anyone's expectation for a headphone amp. And second is independently suspended tube module. Through delicate mechanical design, the chassis is not just heavy but also as solid as machined from a single metallic brick. Every plate is machined from 10mm solid aluminum and faceplate is over 20mm. Four especially design pillars are used to support tube sub-assembly and dedicated springs are inserted to further dampen the minimal vibration. The chassis of Phantom is solid as a tank and gentle as a cradle.

The Heart of Phantom, 3Q4 (DL95) Directly Heated Tube
With all the dramatic progress, there is one thing we did not change. We adopted a directly heated tube – 3Q4 in Phantom. We are true believer in directly heated tube for their sensational audio performance of intimacy and lifelike sound stage more than none-filament type valves. Phantom with triode-connected 3Q4 immediately warms up into working condition, though it takes tens of minutes for optimum sound quality.

High Fidelity Output Transformers
We are proud to say the single-ended output has equivalent performance as balanced output by leveraging output transformers in Phantom. There are many praises about Phantasy's audio quality and most are originated from its premium output transformers. Without exception, Phantom is integrated with high quality output transformers. Thanks to the roomy enclosure, we have plenty space to house high power iron cores without compromise. The model used in Phantom is newly developed especially for its output stages and driven by two amplifiers in a push-pull style to minimize distortion and noise.
The output transformer is the last mile in delivering music energy to headphone. The bandwidth, dynamics, distortion, and maximum output power are limited by this iron core. No matter how well active circuitry performs, an inferior transformer will choke them all. A dual secondary coils are wisdom borrowed from PHAntasy to adapt to wide variation of headphone impedance.

Simple and Elegant
Phantom has followed Phatlab's highly regarded tradition – Simplicity. No matter how sophisticated internal architecture is, it is presented to user with a simple and intuitive interface through elegant and professional industrial design. Though the construction and component counts are many times of its portable predecessors. Phantom is strictly binding to principle of shortest signal path. From input buffer, volume control, up to power amplifiers, there is only one voltage gain stage. This is the only way to minimize internal generated noise. There is hardly a trace of hiss even paired with most sensitive headphones.
Critical music signals and outputs are routed through mechanical relays for highest purity. The relays used in Phantom is especially selected latch-type that means relay's coil does not consume current after switching. Without the coil current, we avoid the electrical field next to signal path. Though a latch-type relay needs much more complex control circuits, it is our exhausted efforts to minimize interference.

Luxury Power Supply
Starting from portable devices, power supply is always a high priority on our design approach. Thanks to the desktop setting, we have plenty of luxury on power block. The power transformer is rated over 80VA and built with top-rated iron core. Running at pure class-A, Phantom is consuming most power after power on. The quality is assured by its slightly warm even after days of operation.
There are 6 regulated power rails specific for each function block ranging from input buffer, volume control, digital control, filament supply, and B+ high voltage.

Awesome ID and Mechanism
Phantom is another masterpiece designed by highly regarded ID and mechanical professionals. The enclosure ingeniously interlock through invisible tenons and notches is as solid as machined from a single brick to ensure best rigidity and precision. The marking is laser trimmed on. There is nothing shaky or loose. It is designed to last from ground up.

Overwhelming and Immersive
The listening experience is overwhelming and immersive. It is ultimately transparent with a warm touch. It drives headphone effortlessly and extends bandwidth well down to lowest octave and up to highest harmonics. The beloved music is presented with a familiar yet whole new face, they've rarely heard as natural or life-like as with Phantom

Class A Single-Ended Triode Portable Headphone Amplifier

PHAntasy is the first member of our Portable Headphone Amplifier (PHA) series. When we kicked off the development of PHAntasy, we determined to achieve two major goals; One is to preserve the true spirit and performance of SET amplifier, pure class-A, transformer coupled output and most important of all, sensational music presentation as we ever experienced on best SET amplifier, and the other is true portability with rechargeable battery via 5V USB port.

We examined every detail of SET topology and auditioned every possible valve candidate and come up with JAN6286, a military grade directly heated triode (DHT). We examined the topology and each element of the amplifier – JAN6286 tubes, boost converter, filament supply, Battery configuration, and Passive Components - to find the best sounding components and combination. As we put them all together we ended up with The PHAntasy, a true fantasy to audiophiles.

PHAntasy is a pure analog and full discrete amplifier. A frequently asked question is why we dare to reverse the trend of integrated DAC. The answer lies in our belief that SET amp is simple and beautiful. We can only make it best instead of adding an average DAC. An amplifier shall explore the full potential of headphone and gives user the freedom to formulate his/her own recipe like what we did in top-notch stereo system.

Inspired by team’s prior background on high-end stereo system, PHAntasy is as solid and delicate as any high-end stereo gear. The enclosure is machined from solid aluminum brick to ensure best rigidity and precision, even the bolts supporting PCB is directly grew from the chassis. The marking is laser trimmed on. There is nothing shaky or loose in PHAntasy. It is designed to last from ground up.



Specifications
• Frequency Response: 30 Hz – 40 kHz (-3dB) / 10 Hz – 60 kHz (-6dB)
• Output power: 250 mW + 250 mW (300 ohm) / 200 mW + 200 mW (75 ohm)
• Headphone impedance: 30 ohm – 600 ohm / 60 ohm – 600 ohm (recommended)
• Power supply: 5V/1A via micro B USB port
• Operation time (on battery): Approx. 8 hours
• Charging time (>1A supply): Approx. 4 hours
• Dimensions: 165 mm x 95 mm x 35 mm
• Net weight: 750 gram

Helt igennem fremragende og uundværlig tråd i ethvert respektabelt headfi-forum! Alle mine 10 tomler op for dette initiativ.
Jeg har endnu en lille bøn om et fast indslag for hver post: info om designerens og producentens land. Altså, er der fx tale om en amerikansk, tysk, engelsk, japansk eller bare endnu en kinøjser ;-)
Det mener jeg, er meget vigtig info.

I øvrigt rigtig fint, at du begynder med at have alle de store vigtige flagskibe med, som Eddie Current, EAR, Cavalli (som er en hybrid), Leben, Woo, Ray Samuels osv. Dog savner jeg Balancing Act under Eddie Current.

STAX SRM-T8000 (£4400)

Stax SRM-T8000.jpg
Stax SRM-T8000.jpg (1016.04 KiB) Vist 9979 gange

Features
• Low-noise, well-established 6922 dual triode tube adopted for high sound quality. The noise level is extremely low and, by just that much, the particle of low-level sound usually buried in noise comes up to the surface.
Then even the usual level sound clears up to improve sound quality such as transparency. It seems as if the glass which superficially looks transparent has been cleaned anew. The whole circuit forms a hybrid one using class-A semiconductor output stage with large current emitter follower. The result is very low noise, live and smooth musical sound as well as excellent spatial description.
• Balanced inputs realizing true tone quality of balanced transmission.
• Coupling capacitor-free configuration from input to output.
• The vacuum tube of the first stage is mounted on an independent board in order to eliminate vibration and external noise. Further, noises have been excluded thoroughly by vibration-proof damper and vacuum tube shield cover used also for a hard disk etc.
• The first large-sized toroidal transformer in the history of STAX driver unit has been adopted to attain low noise and low leakage flux. This also enables the reproduction of high-speed and live sound over the entire frequency region.
• The chassis is made of non-magnetic aluminum instead of conventional iron. Thus the factor of cloudy tone quality has been eliminated and the weight has become lighter at the same time.
• Four pairs of inputs are equipped. (Notes: LINE4 is an optional circuit board slot for future purpose. As for now, release is not yet determined.)
• LINE1, LINE2 or LINE3 inputs of the SRM-T8000 can bypass the incorporated volume controller, enabling it to connect to source equipments with volume controller or to an external attenuator. That is, the unit can be used as an exclusive power amplifier with no volume controller.
• The newly developed large-sized aluminum insulator combined with new vibration-proof material and high frictional coefficient (grip power) has been employed. The friction power is so high that you almost need not hold the unit when inserting the plug of your earspeaker.
• Various high-grade electronic parts have been employed paying careful attention to tone quality, performance and environments.
• Compatible with all STAX PRO-bias earspeakers with 5-pin plug.
• LINE1 is equipped with PARALLEL OUT bypassing input signals.

Specifications
• Frequency response: 1Hz - 115kHz / when used with one earspeaker
• Gain: 60dB (x1000)
• Harmonic distortion: 0.01% /1kHz
• Input terminal: LINE1/LINE2 (RCA), LINE3 (XLR), LINE4 (optional input for future)
• Rated input level: 100mV (at 100V output)
• Input impedance: 50kΩ (RCA) / 50kΩx 2 (XLR)
• Maximum output voltage: 470Vrms (1330V p-p)

This is one of our best sounding single-ended power amplifiers. Although it only outputs 2Wrms it can nevertheless drive a pair of speakers with 88db/W efficiency to a reasonable loudness level. It is also a very high quality headphone amplifier, with a super quiet, super warm, rich sound. The output transformer employs a NOS UTC 2W wide band transformer.

This is the enhanced version of our small powered 6AS7G amp, which has a bigger power transformer for higher power output capability as well as a more transparent sound quality. This version can be built with a 300Hz (option: any freq) high pass filter with a by-pass switch. This makes it easier to adapt between a normal single amplifier system or a bi-amped configuration. Input level controls give flexibility to best match the tonal balance between the hi-section and lo-section amplifiers in a bi-amped system. A 3 input version is also available.


Specifications
• No. of inputs: 1 set of RCA inputs
• No. of outputs: 1 set of speaker outputs ( 4-16 ohm)
• Freq response: 20Hz - 40Khz (-3db) (300Hz-40Khz for High-pass-filtered position )
• S/N: > 80 db
• Phase: Non-inverted (option: inverted)
• Manufacturing: Hand-wired point to point
• Tubes used: 2 x 6SN7/6SL7/6SU7 + 2 x 6AS7G
• Output power/ch: 2Wrms pure class A, single-ended
• Standard chassis includes MDF construction in any color, or a gold/silver aluminum type.

Add C$200 for solid oak chassis
Add C$500 for ultra high gloss black piano finish
Add C$150 for black lacqor finish
Add C$200 for black-gold finish (G version)
