Updated first post with backstory behind the Liquid Carbon.  Still awaiting specs, which I'll post as soon as I get them.


Home of the Liquid Carbon, Liquid Crimson, Liquid Glass, Liquid Gold and
Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

I've been really happy with my Oppo HA-1 but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be joining team Cavalli with the launch of this amp. I'd love to reclaim some of my desk back..

The retail price for this initial production run will be substantially discounted

 

My ears just perked up and faced forward.  This should be interesting!

No, it's from the backstory that Warren posted.last night, direct quote from Mr. (Dr?) Cavalli.

To those who heard this with the Geek Pulse setup:

 

Is the Carbon paired with the vanilla, fi , xfi, inifnity? And how's the pairing compared to the amp of the pulse itself? Interested in getting this to pair with my infinity.

Well, I'm hiding money away to be on the first order.  The funny/sad part is Moon Audio will most likely be getting as much money as Dr Cavalli.  Oh the cabling I will want....

Quoted from an email from Alex Cavalli:

The Liquid Carbon was designed to be fully discrete, small, lightweight (transportable), and to deliver modest but useful power (1500mW @50R).
 

 

1.5W into 50 Ohms is far beyond a modest amount of power!

 

This thing is going to be a little beast!!  :L3000:

Yup, directly from email!  :smile:

Lol, well we are talking about the man behind the LAu, so I think it's safe to say that his definition of modest is just a wee bit different from ours.  :D

 

I've also requested full technical specifications of the unit, or at least of the prototype, and I expect to receive them soon.

Everyone's freaking out because of the price point, and at $500-$700, I might think about investing if the price point for a used one is acceptable. Here's to hoping that people will be willing to sell theirs! :p

 

Either that, or someone who lives in Kansas needs to get one. Or loan me one forever. Or I need to work my normal job, and then get another job just to pay for audio.

I personally wouldn't put much a whole lot of hope into people selling them. ;) You'll probably have a couple of members who receive the Liquid Carbon and find that it doesn't synergize with their particular setup, but the working prototype at CanJam was absolutely phenomenal. I expect it to be some time before they start showing up in the sale threads.

Well, I'm expecting to start actually experimenting with different setups in about a decade, so, do you think that'll be long enough? :p Now that I've got the HE-500, I'm not going to be getting any more headphones until after my speaker setup is complete. That is, my Magnepan 3.7 setup, which'll take about 6 years to fund when I increase my budget.

Is there a tentative schedule for the first run ? Can't wait for pairing it with my AK240   :basshead:

post #75 of 5931

Or, better yet, some sort of beta test like Schiit did with the Ragnarok.
