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 - Integrated 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.
