The heart of the Z10e is the highly-acclaimed ZOTL10 power amplifier, using sweet sounding EL-84 power tubes providing 12 tube watts per channel. The amplifier is preceded by the 12AU7 preamplifier circuitry, which was borrowed from one of David Berning’s ultra-premium amplifiers. It features both true balanced and single ended inputs. The preamplifier uses ceramic circuit board material, giving it a premium point-to-point sound quality. We also use premium Mundorf caps and Ohno OCC wire on the output.
The amplifier is wrapped in our new control system featuring: 5 inputs (including one true balanced input,) LED dimmable display with configurable time out, LED input indicators, home theater mode, remote controlled stepped attenuation using premium Vishay Dale resistors, and a linear power supply configured with a Belleson regulator for extremely low noise.
As well as the Electrostatic headphone output, the Z10e also comes equipped with two regular (planar and dynamic) headphone output jacks: a high output for less sensitive headphones and a low output for very sensitive headphones. The regular headphone outputs are first quality and comparable to our acclaimed microZOTL headphone sonic quality.
Electrostatic Headphone Amp
We are excited to announce the launch of this wonderful new product with LTA, The Z10e Electrostatic Headphone Amp!
This design is unique in a number of ways:
- It is a world class tube powered E-stat headphone amp based on ZOTL technology design by David Berning
- It also provides excellent analog amplification for high and low output headphones
- & finally, it is a killer integrated amp for high efficiency speakers!
This small unit (12" w x 6" tall x 14" deep) can fit just about anywhere and is flexible enough to be used in a huge range of applications without compromising on quality to any degree.
