Crafted to perfection, this amplifier combines innovation, precision, and power to deliver an audio experience that is second to none. With its fully balanced architecture and meticulous design, the Prelude sets a new standard for headphone amplification.

Unleash the Power of Fully Balanced Class A Architecture

The Prelude boasts a fully balanced class A MOS-FET high current output that delivers unparalleled audio quality. The amplifier's architecture features a precise single-ended to balanced conversion circuit that transforms the single-ended RCA input into a fully balanced output. This innovative approach ensures that every detail of your music is faithfully reproduced, allowing you to experience audio with breathtaking clarity and realism. The pre-amplifier circuit employs a class A output structure, providing exceptional power and a natural timbre that brings your music to life.

Precision with Alps Potentiometer

Experience complete and accurate channel balance with the Alps potentiometer. This sophisticated control element guarantees that your listening experience is perfectly calibrated, ensuring that you hear your music exactly as it was intended. Whether you're enjoying delicate classical melodies or thunderous rock anthems, the Alps potentiometer ensures that every note reaches your ears with utmost precision.

Uncompromising Power and Protection

The Prelude is driven by a customized high-power, low-noise toroidal transformer with a multi-channel high-speed low-noise voltage regulator circuit. This power supply setup guarantees that your headphones are powered with precision and consistency, enabling you to experience the full dynamic range of your music. Additionally, the fully balanced headphone protection circuit ensures that your headphones remain safe while delivering a powerful, distortion-free sound.

Premium Construction for Sonic Purity

The Prelude's housing is meticulously crafted from a single piece of aluminum, serving a dual purpose of aesthetics and sound quality. This design approach isolates harmful resonance that can negatively impact sonic output, resulting in an audio experience that is free from unwanted artifacts. Every component is carefully chosen and integrated to deliver a pure, unadulterated listening experience.
