Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire Tube Hybrid Headphone Amplifier
The Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire is a hybrid
headphone amp, meaning that it uses a combination of tube and solid-state-powered
output circuitry. While hybrid circuits, per se, are not new, there are several
aspects of the Cavalli design that are quite unusual and distinctive. Cavalli strives
to provide a best-of-two-world’s design, combining the transparency, harmonic richness,
and sonic liquidity of great tube circuits with the cleanliness, precision, and
control of great solid state circuits; hence the name Liquid Fire.
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.
V181 Balanced Headphone Amplifier & DAC
The Violectric HPA V181 is the first balanced
headphone amp manufactured in Germany! The four built-in amplifiers provide balanced
operation of headphones. Connection is made via 4-pin Neutrik XLR connector. Two
“standard” headphones may be connected via 1/4" jacks on the front panel.
DAC V800 Digital Audio Converter
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. The inputs and outputs are situated on the rear panel, they are equipped
with electronically balanced gold plated XLR connectors and unbalanced gold plated
RCA connectors. A USB input allows direct connection to a PC. Volume control is
provided with a high-grade ALPS RK 27 pot with a large full metal rotary knob. Two
headphones may be connected via 1/4" jacks on the front panel Case and back panel
are made of aluminium and are Nextel coated. The 8 mm aluminium frontpanel is milled,
sand blasted and black anodized. The labeling is laser engraved.
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."
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.
Arcici Component Isolation Systems
Arcici SR1 Reference Suspense Rack &
Air Head Isolation Platform. Arcici, an acknowledged leader in reducing vibrations
through air suspension, has just raised the standard. The new Reference Suspense
Rack now isolates vibrations on a LATERAL as well as VERTICAL plane. For high-end
aficionados, the improvements in musical purity and precise imaging are extraordinary.
The top ebony section holds three heavy duty bellows which are inflated prior to
installing your components through three Schrader valves. A pump is provided for
this purpose. A 70 pound steel plate rests on three bellows and four threaded rods
drop down from this plate. Special spring-loaded speed nuts slide on to the rods
at infinitely adjustable intervals. The shelves are slotted to rest on the speed
nuts. This “plumb-line” suspense system helps prevent any tilting or imbalance after
you install your components. Up to five shelves can be accommodated including the
top of the rack, which is also air suspended.
Arcici also makes the stand-alone AIR HEAD, a pneumatic isolation box for individual
components. Large enough to accommodate virtually any turntable and most amplifiers
(20" x 21" x 2"), it consists of a thick MDF platform on enclosed
heavy-duty rubber tubes filled with air. The base is constructed of non-endangered
Brazilian Jatoba Wood, hand rubbed to a fiddle back finish. These platforms serve
as a perfect complement to the SUSPENSE, or may be used on their own for superior
isolation of key components.

What's in a Name?
Established in 2005, Aphrodite Cu29 strives to satisfy the extreme demands
of the audiophile residing in all of us. Derived from Aphrodite, the

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.
