I apologize for my absence, but I am back and recommitted to being very responsive to the Audio Circle.
We have a couple new products we are about to launch.
One is an Integrated 10 watt amplifier. It combines our ZOTL10 power amp with a preamp/balanced to single ended converter circuit using 2 12AU7s borrowed from David's $30K Quad Z amplifier. It also has two headphone outs. There is a switch between headphones and speaker outs, as the resistors protect the headphones from the 12 watts. We could easily set the high output to 5 watts and have the low output be 1 watt (same as microZOTL). The sonic quality is pretty much equivalent to the MZ2. It has some of the same improvements we put in the MZ3/microZOTL Preamplifier, so it is even more liquid and musical. It costs $4600, so its a lot more than the MZ2, but sounds gorgeous with any speakers 90db sensitivity or higher. This is in production, but we are finishing up the optional phono preamp, and we want to get a couple reviews before we start advertising it.
We are announcing at Axpona our new electrostatic headphone amplifier. Its a ZOTL output transformerless electrostatic headphone amp, has regular dynamic and planar headphone outputs (a high and a low suspiciously like the Integrated 10 watt), and also has 12 watts for speakers.It will be in the high $6K range, similar to Blue Hawaii.
We have a bunch of other stuff for much later in the year.....a couple of those or 2.5 - 6 watt Berning amplifiers for super efficiency speakers and inefficient headphones...but the timeframes are at least 6 months....
Thanks for asking..
