Powerful, transparent, focused.
The best headphone amplifier in the world, streamlined and focused.
The Soloist SL is a concentrated version of our award winning Soloist. Its circuitry design is 100% identical to the Soloist and it exists for one purpose only. That is to be one of the best headphone amplifiers in the world.
At 14cm * 8cm * 21cm it sits elegantly on any desktop. But with 2 watts per channel into 16ohm, the Soloist SL is one of the most powerful headphone amps in the world. driving most if not all headphones to their full potential. Coupled with a 2 level gain switch, it offers infinite flexibility.
Small in size, big in performance.
Over-killed transformer plus over killed power supply equal to peak driving power in any situation with ease.
The Soloist SL outputs 2 watts per channel (4 watts for stereo) into 16ohm. To achieve this specification most conventional designs will settle for a 12 watts transformer. We on the other hand know the difference between achieving it momentarily and sustaining it. Hence we have implemented a 25VA tailored design transformer which ensures that the Soloist SL outputs at 2 watts constantly, without breaking a sweat.
The Soloist SL power supply is built around a noise-filtering network that employs twice as many filtering stages compared to the conventional design resulting in superior noise rejection. Fed by its 25VA transformer, it delivers clean and stable power. The result is pure music against a pitch-black background.
Beautiful and purposeful aluminium enclosure.
Operating in pure Class-A, the Soloist SL generates a lot of heat. Music sounds great but the heat was the necessary evil which could harm its many components.
The enclosure was constructed with 2mm folded aluminium to act as a giant heat-sink, which allows the Class-A headamp to run cooler, and remain optimised.
Perfect synergy with the rest of your system.
Variable Output Stage (VOS) enables our design to match well with any type of headphone systems and speaker systems. It ensures synergy when your system evolves through time.
Less noise, more music.
We tailored power filtering networks with discrete components and each filtering stage optimised for its application. The result is an energetic and engaging music reproduction.
