The Viva Egolista is a 845 SET triode amplifier designed and made in Italy. Amedeo Schembri has been making world class tube amps for speakers. The 15W Egolista can be finished in any automotive paint finish and is available for custom order. The 10K price make this one if the most expensive amplifiers for headphones manufactured. The 845 tubes are unique legendary triodes that are designed and available in speaker amp designs and used here in this headphone only design. The driver is a single 6sn7 with a 6n1P . Two 5U4G handle the tube rectification. The sound is liquid and very transparent with inner detail and musicality. I am working the review with the prototype and have found the amplifier amazing with all my flagship headphones.
Amedeo hand tunes each amplifier for the best musical reproduction . The tonality of the instruments are very special on this amplifier. The Egolista is beautifully manufactured and weighs in at a heft 65 pounds. A very special amplifier for anyone wanting the maximum transparency and musicality. Full review coming shortly.
