Hi,

 

here are more few details about the amp:

 

Specs:
- Internal LiFePO4 battery powered (with external charger)
- Class-A operation solid state - selected/matched pairs - 32pcs MOS-FET's (4x8) power-stage for headphones
- More than enough power for driving the famous AKG K1000
- Relay switched attenuator and source selector with bamboo remote control, OLED display
- One pair balanced (XLR) and two pair single-ended (RCA) inputs and one pair XLR and one pair RCA active preamp outputs
- One balanced (4 & 2x3pin) and two (same time usable with different phones too) common grounded/single-ended (1/4" jack) headphones outputs
- Optional built-in USB DAC (24/192) ...coming soon
- Developed with AKG K1000, Audeze LCD3 / LCD2 and Beyerdynamic T1
- Solid bamboo housing

 

 

There are four different versions available:

 

- Sileo (standard): HP amp + pre-amp MSRP €2795 
- Sileo Plus: HP amp + pre-amp + (built-in) USB DAC (in this case no XLR input) MSRP €3295 (coming soon)
- Sileo Light Plus: pre-amp + (built-in) USB DAC (in this case no XLR input) MSRP €2995 (coming soon)

We're waiting for serious voluntary testers/reviewers from Head-Fi (especially from Hungary for first time)...

It looks very promissing to me. I could offer my Grace design m903 headphone amplifier and async usb dac to a direct comparsion with SILEO. Its price level is near the SILEOs. I assume that we are close together due to iem living in Budapest. Also it would be my pleasure to test your amp. PM me about details and requirements if a have a chance:-).

Hi Szabolcs,

 

A deeper comparison with your Grace Design m903 unit would be interesting indeed. We'll contact you shortly.

Thanks for your offer!

Hello Pal,

 

The internal USB-DAC is basically a special Human Audio Tabla/Muto combination with USB input only. (The USB engine /M2Tech/ of the Tabla and the DAC stage of the Muto/Muto-X completed with a new designed analog stage)

Yes, it is very stable - like a bamboo table - i.e. it can hold my body if I stand up on top ;)

It's probably out of my price range, but how much would this cost?
