EarMax Silver Edition Headphone Amplifier
Description:The headphone listening market has been gradually expanding to where some fabulous headphones are available from reputable companies who have been in business for decades.
During the early days, 70s and 80s, headphone listeners would plug their headphones into a 1/4" input located on the front panel of their receiver or integrated amplifier. Most built-in amplifiers, if not all of them, were mediocre-sounding op-amps, kind of stuck into a corner, and allowing at least city dwellers to continue enjoying their music listening beyond the mandatory cutoff time of 10 PM.
How the scenery in headphone listening arena has come of age! The amount of headphone producing companies is now matched, if not exceeded, by small companies producing dedicated stand-alone headphone amplifiers. One of the delightful amps is the EarMax which was introduced to North America by AUDIO ADVANCEMENTS LLC in 1994 at the Winter CES. This little almost palm-sized cutie has endeared itself to headphone listener all over the world with over 5000 units sold since its introduction.
All units are hand- assembled in Germany by a small team of dedicated music lovers, and you now have an opportunity to reserve your unit for a ravishing listening experience. By looking at the photos you can see that the unit consists of two pieces: the actual amplifier with three tubes, and the custom-designed power supply.
