Slovenian company Erzetich got in touch with Hifi Pig to tell us all about their new high-end headphone Deimos_headphone_amplifieramplifier, the Deimos .

“Despite the rough, 19th century industrial look, with an aged linden wood faceplate and milled thick aluminum parts, there’s a gentle soul inside. This 6.5-kg-headpone amplifier sounds balanced and precise and makes an important visual statement on your desk – no wonder it was a great success among visitors at this year’s Munich High End Hi-Fi show” says the company’s press release with the company’s CEO and founder Blaž Erzetič commenting
“I’ve rediscovered the music with Deimos, This is a supercar among headphone amplifiers. Every album I listen to on it is a spectacle on its own. Visually, we studied a lot the exterior, too, to make this machine not only an ear-, but also an eye-candy”;

Due to the complexity of manufacture, Erzetich plans a very limited yearly production of this completely hand crafted, headphone amplifier;

·  dual mono class-A

  • three separate power supplies (two for analog, one for digital)
  • 43000 uF smoothing capacitors per channel
  • digitally controlled 64-steps relay-based volume attenuator
  • gain boost switch
  • RCA and XLR inputs
  • superior quality RCA connectors
  • Neutrik gold plated XLR connectors
  • chassis made of steel, aluminum, wood and acrylic

Deimos will be available at the beginning of 2015 for around 4,000 EUR but Erzetich will start accepting preorders with a special discount in late September.
