Exceptional sound experience due to low noise

Every component introduces sound colouration. That’s why using fewer components of higher quality can significantly improve your sound experience. Thanks to our collaboration with various German manufacturers, we only specify components of the highest calibre, however, for an exceptional listening experience, reducing noise is also crucial. To this end, “The Universal” employs motor-controlled sliders and low-noise broadband transformers as well as a circuit board with a double copper layer and gold-plated traces. This allows for an exceptionally powerful sound profile and ensures long-lasting, uniform sound transmission by preventing copper layer oxidation. Finally, long-term stable audiophile capacitors and our proprietary integrated power supply enable decades of consistent musical enjoyment.
Combine “The Universal” with our tube preamplifier “The Phono” for a truly inspiring sound quality.

Why do I need a headphone amplifier?

Headphone outputs are available in most playback devices, yet from a circuitry perspective, this output is often woefully neglected, such that the music does not fully express its pure sound. A tube headphone amplifier is therefore the perfect choice to bring your favourite songs to life, reproducing music with exceptional precision thanks to its high-quality and minimal number of components. As a result, it produces a sound quality that you just cannot achieve with built-in headphone outputs.
