The Elise is built with two 6AS7G (also accepts 6080 power tubes) and two driver 6SN7 tubes. Power supply is based on a custom made stabilized toroidal transformer with electronic ripple suppression. The amplifier is equipped with automatic bias circuit, therefore no re-tuning is required after changing tubes. Please note that the optimal sound quality will be reached after approximately 30 – 50 hours of run-in.

Elise is originally equipped with high quality tubes. Stock driver tubes are 6SN7 power tubes are 6N13S. Tubes can be changed by the user, to the following:

Driver tubes: 6N8S, CV181, ECC32, 5692, 6F8G

The Winner

The superb Elise tube amplifier accord to the IP-address is going to a home in Diedesheim, Germany. To prove that the winner entered the contest and left a comment on the announcement post, here’s what he posted about a week ago:

“I’ve been in this hobby for over a year now and have collected several headphones and iem’s. In my collection are closed backs, semi open and open back HP with dynamic and planar drivers. They go from 32 ohm up to 250 ohm. So far they are all driven by solid state amps. For a while now I am looking to give tube amplifiers a go as I figured out that relaxed warm and fun sound is my favorite sound signature. I appreciate clean, analytical and very detailed HP some times but this signature really lives from certain music genres and recording quality. While I still do some researching on what tube amp I should start with I figured that I have to spend a certain amount even as an entry level tube amp to get a decent satisfying result. The Elise has a really stylisch and clean look, the reviews are promising therefore it would be a perfect start for my tube experience”.
