Apex Peak Headphone Amplifier & Volcano Power Supply - UNUSED IN FACTORY SEALED PLASTIC
Purchased in April 2012 from TTVJ and stored unused in original packaging - units are still sealed in plastic with desiccant sachets. Please refer to photo's - umbilical power lead sealed in packet. Out of packaging photo's borrowed from Apex HiFi website. In pristine `as new' condition. Stored in my home office as had a transient job for 18 months, now settled and transitioning into computer audio so selling to raise funds for a Lumin network player.
New the Peak costs $1,395 (£861) and the Volcano $700 (£432) = $2,095 or £1,293 plus shipping and import taxes. So easily £500 less expensive than buying `new' from TTVJ.
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.
