Well I searched for it in the forums but couldn't find anything yet, so I figured I might as well get the ball rolling (if there's another thread, you can remove this one)
A while ago Q Audio sent out an email announcing the the creation of The Audio Guild, under the umbrella of which we'd find Q Audio (whose cables a lot of us really enjoy) and the new Electro Magnetic Amplifier Co. (EMAC, which may or may not be intentional, but certainly yields most search results relating to the classic text (and so much more) editor)
The first product will be a new and perhaps a bit in the spirit of Monthy Python's "And now for something completely different" (but certainly no joke) headphone amplifier, the EMAC 515SE. And I'm surprised it hasn't generated more interest... yet.
So for now the official home page, with an intriguing knob : http://www.emac-audio.com/
Most information can be found on their Facebook page (luckily you don't have to sign in):
Make sure you unfold the "more" bit on the comments that Steve Eddy & Denny Muratovic made starting a couple of days ago.
I won't make a copy-pasta of the whole thing, but it's apparently a new/old design revolving around a step-up transformer and a FETlington-type output stage and to quote them "In my opinion, it truly transcends the whole tubes versus solid state schism and is in a league of its own."
I'm personally very intrigued, and especially also look forward to the design reveal since it promises to be as unique as the underlying technology... The knob seems to indicate a bit of a retro vibe which I'm always on board for
Oh, and to complete the links, there's a Twitter account as well:
