Assuming it follows the Odyssey tradition of significantly outperforming its price point, this is great news. Any chance of even a prototype showing at CAF next month?

Klaus - that's just mean...no pictures...no cost... just a hint?!!   :wtf:

I'm a headphone guy, I must have 4 pair or so of headphones laying around and I've built 4 Bottlehead headphone amps including the Mainline. 

All purchases put on hold until this comes out!!!  :drool:

Come on boss...give us more!!   :whip:

Crazy, can’t wait!  Just started the headphone hobby looking for a great headphone amp. 
Still have my Kismet Integrated after the last upgrade don’t know if we can still classify it as an Integrated lol.

I called Alex and asked if they made “HP amps” about a month or so ago ..

Sign me up , I can’t wait !!
Thank you Klaus & Alex for listening to your customers ..

As arguably the second biggest headphone nut on this site, I am intrigued.

That all said, everybody claims to be start of the art these days. So what is it that makes this amp stick out above the others?

Fine...I'm going to BestBuy and buy a fine 15.2 channel system with Monster Cables and Bose Speakers...  Spend my money that way!   :slap:

No..really - you got something in the works?!??   :argue:

Cats name ???  Well,  definitely not Grumpy Cat,  nor Garfield or Fritz....it's not Sylvester either....Figaro, Nermal, Cheshire ???  Naaahhh...Hello Kitty or Tabby Cat ???  Nope...Felix ??  Scratchy ?? Jinx ??  Puss in Boots ??? Lucifer, Stimpy, or Mr. Bigglesworth ???  Don't think so....actually, have no freaking idea,  but she's just too damn cute.....


As for Aaron's question:  yes,  of course we toyed with the idea,  but in reality we actually sell quite a few Cyclops'  to the Headphone crowd,  works very well,   and let's face it, for the $ there isn't anything out there that will equal it in terms of headphone amps....

Klaus,

Will it be balanced or single ended?  Output connector type(s)?

That's a bold claim... there is a LOT of competition out there.

I don't have any Odyssey products, but I know of you through your good reputation. That said, you have to admit that "there isn't anything out there that will equal it" is a wild claim, and we've all seen that claim made many times before to varying degrees in both headphone and speaker worlds alike.

So like I said earlier... I'm intrigued enough by your reputation alone, but you gotta give us something tangible to actually get excited over.
