We have 2 new products to announce and we are now taking pre orders for them!!!
The Peak is a new hybrid headphone amp/preamp and the Volcano a high end power supply upgrade that currently works with the Peak and TTVJ FET-A. Both are designed by Pete Millett and sold exclusively through TTVj.
The Peak comes supplied with a 120/240v external power supply for $1400 or with the Volcano for $2000. The Volcano as a separate purchase is $650 so you can save $50 by purchasing them together.
Here are the details...
The Apex Peak represents a fresh approach to a mid-priced headphone amplifier and preamp.
The Peak is a hybrid amplifier, pairing a 6SN7 vacuum tube voltage amplifier stage with a class-A single-ended MOSFET output stage. Unlike some hybrid amplifiers on the market, the Peak generates a true high voltage B+ supply to operate the tube where it belongs – at a very linear operating point. The single-ended MOSFET output stage is DC-coupled to the outputs to provide excellent drive capability and deep bass response.
Three inputs, selected by a front panel switch, and a line output (which is automatically muted when you plug in your headphones) are provided, so you can use the Peak both as a headphone amplifier and a pre-amp for a loudspeaker system. Relays are used to keep the signal path short and direct.
The standard Peak is powered by an external switching power supply. For ultimate fidelity, an optional linear power supply is available that matches the amplifier in appearance and performance.
Unique design and quality parts combine to give the Peak optimum sound at an affordable price. Unlike many so-called "high-end" audio components, the Peak is not just a prettied-up marginal design implemented with poor-quality parts from third-world nations. It is proudly hand-built in the USA.
