Last week’s Winners
The Final Audio F7200 IEM giveaway was more popular than expected but there can be only one winner. This week that is Ian Melville from the United Kingdom. Congratulations. You’ll be contacted very soon, please get in touch.
As promised and explained earlier, we’ll be doing a year long of weekly giveaways and last September was the start of our 52-week celebration. For this twenty-second unit of the biggest audio giveaway the world has ever seen, we’re giving away one Violectric V200 10th Anniversary Edition amplifier (no USB DAC module) worth over $1200USD!! This wonderful amplifier can become yours and all you have to do is … sign up and leave a comment. Any comment is good but let’s keep it fun and comment what headphone you will be using with this amplifier.
But first, let’s look at Violectric and their V200 Anniversary Edition amplifier.
Violectric is a brand by LakePeople and since its founding in 1986, Lake People has been developing solutions for recording studios that demand the highest levels of sound and reliability. Over the years, the circuits and designs have been further refined – today’s Lake People offer is the result of 30 years of development. “We develop, produce and distribute Lake People products in the professional sector. As an example for radio, television, airports, exhibition halls, festival theaters, theaters, large installations or private studios. Since a short period of time these devices are also sold in the private sector. Based on the high quality the popularity of our products is instantly growing. With the brand and product line Violectric, the hi-fi / high-end market with its special needs is to be served purposefully. We turn to pragmatists who are interested in comprehensible technical-physical solutions and their high-quality implementation. This approach is also reflected in the design of the Violectric appliances, which look simple yet classy. ”
The latest creation from LakePeople is the NIMBUS series which we’ll be looking at for sure once it becomes available.
The V200 10th Anniversary Edition amplifier
The Violectric V200 amplifier has won many awards and it’s one of those amplifiers that just is really special. I myself started off with the Violectric V100, then got the V200 instead and finally upgraded to the V281 amplifier which I still have in my office.
The V200 we’re giving away this week is a bit special as it is the 10th Anniversary Edition. Yes, Violectric and the V200 have been around for a while already! This is the first time Violectric is showing the V200 Anniversary Edition so this giveaway is a bit of a worldwide scoop at the same time! Technically there is no difference with a regular V200, the unique thing here is the new front plate with the 10th anniversary mention. The regular V200 without DAC module is selling for $1220USD.
You can find out all the specs of the V200 in my review or right here: https://www.violectric.com/product-page/hpa-v200
I actually reviewed the V200 back in 2012 already and I can’t believe it’s been that long ago already. From the review: “The V200 is about power, bass and overall detail and smoothness and it’s a warmer and less neutral amplifier than the V100 is. I love the Violectric sound and I could perfectly live with the V200 as my solid state amp. If you want to get the best out of your hard to drive headphones, the Violectric models should definitely be on your short list, they are worth every single bit.”
