NEW   Violectric Next Generation Headphone Amplifiers - V220 & V281   NEW

We are proud to announce that after two years of work our new headphone amplifier designs have finally been completed. Both the electronics and the case designs have been finished and are now ready for the next phase, setting up production. The new models for 2014 are named V220 and V281. Both feature the famous amplifier design used in the HPA V200 (which will remain in production along with HPA V181). HPA V220 is the base unit while the V281 will add an additional internal stereo amp along with a 4 pin XLR headphone connector for balanced headphone configurations. The power supply will use large toroidal transformers which will enable additional output power as compared with the V181 and V200. The reliable V200 amp circuitry is utilized with its highly efficient current limiters and will only be slightly altered to further refine the design. Both models offer balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs along with an optional digital input. The digital modules are available as USB, Coaxial and Optical with your choice of 24/96 or our newly designed 24/192 version that uses a PCM1798 D/A converter along with optimized analog output circuitry. Lots of protection circuitry is used in this design to ensure extremely long lasting lifespan for both the amp and your headphones.

Violectric V200 Headphone Amplifier & DAC Balanced Inputs

The Violectric HPA V200 was developed with the target to enable ultimate transmission quality for low- , medium- and high-impedance headphones design is our high-end interpretation for what a complete headphone amplifier should be.

November 2009: Comparative Test in Professional Audio Musik & Equipment
"
All three Violectric headphone amplifiers are real top devices which provide together with high quality headphones a real treat for the ears. Who would want it absolutely honest and neutral is best suited with the V100. Who requires even more detailed sound and an impulse behaviour hardly more to be excelled, has to take V200 into account. In every aspect this is the best headphone amplifier we have ever tested."

Sound Performance Lab Phonitor

The Sound Performance Lab Phonitor design is our high-end interpretation for what a complete headphone amplifier should be. A well chosen system of Phonitor and headphones can by and large replace loudspeakers and offers all that is required for a successful session long listening periods without ear fatigue. In addition to its standard monitoring functions the Phonitor offers new controls such as “Crossfeed“, “Speaker Angle“ and “Center Level“. These are the essential parameters that create the width, balance and overall space within a listening field and how we recognize them coming from the loudspeaker. Crossfeed simulates the frequency dependent interaural level differences from both channels. Speaker Angle determines the stereo width caused by frequency dependent interaural time differences. Center Level regulates the balance between phantom centre and L/R stereo signals.

                   

WireWorld Cable Technology

WireWorld Pure Silver / Copper Ohno Continuous Cast OCC audio, video and power cables utilize a series of patented and highly effective innovations to provide dramatic improvements in sound and image quality. Our unique scientific approach of comparing cables to a direct connection has resulted in products of superlative performance and value, which thrill consumers and critics all around the World. A generation has passed since audio enthusiasts first discovered that cables could change the sound of their stereo systems, but clear explanations of those changes and of why one cable may produce better sound quality than another are not easily found. The fact is that the best cable of all, would be no cable at all, a direct physical connection between components. Our unique approach of evaluating cables by comparing them to a direct connection has enabled us to develop cables that clearly preserve more of the beautiful harmonic textures and dynamic expression that make live music so enjoyable. Likewise, our objective methodology and dedication to quality have also led to substantial advances in digital video cable and power cord technology.

Eliminating Vibrations with ViaBlue™ Three-Peak-System Isolation System. ViaBlue TRI Absorbers, QTC Spikes and HS spikes. ViaBlue™ TRI absorbers receive vibrations from vibrating bodies like speakers (such as diaphragms) and devices (such as transformers and reduces them. Through a high pressure concentrated on three minimum points (peaks), maximum pressure is built up as a connection point between vibrating bodies and their base. Through the extreme pressure points, the vibrations are eliminated. This leads to vibration absorption.

Aphrodite Cu29 "Goddess of Sound"...
What's in a Name?

Established in 2003, Aphrodite Cu29 strives to satisfy the extreme demands of the audiophile residing in all of us. Derived from Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love, Passion and Beauty  Cu, the Element Symbol for Copper  29, the Atomic Number for Copper.  Combined to symbolically represent our perpetual love affair with technology and just how essential copper is to the very existence of all the electronic devices that shape our world today. Reality is that you, I and life as we know it on Earth would not exist without copper. So in the Grand Scheme of the Universe, we can not live without copper and the "Things" we can not live without are brought to life by copper.
