The newest creation from designer/engineer Pete Millett for the Apex High Fi Audio line is the portable Apex Glacier. This amp is so slim and cool!
The Glacier has a great headphone amplifier section. The DAC section is 24/96 and sounds fantastic. The Glacier also has an excellent power supply to insure the electronics are not lacking for power!
Features include three gain settings, separate USB inputs for charging the amp and Digital In, Digital volume control, color volume/on/off indicator and 4 connector strips to connect your Glacier and portable source together. No rubber bands or sticky mess as the connector strips are removable and leave no residue!
But the best features of all are the footprint of the Glacier. It is ultra-thin and is the same footprint as the most popular portable sources – the iPod and iPhone as well as many other portable players.
