Feliks Audio Envy 25 Anniversary

We are delighted to continue to share with audio enthusiasts around the world our latest developments in tube amplification. This year we have two very special projects to share. First, we will show the unique Envy 25th Anniversary – our best headphone amplifier ever designed, that despite having an exclusive coverage of only 25 units worldwide, has already made some noise within the enthusiasts’ community. The “mystery” showing will be an advanced prototype of our first electrostatic amplifier that people can audition at our stand for the very first time.

Envy has been a market leading premium tube headphone amplifier for a while. It’s an incredible product, and we still get asked by customers “can you make it better?”. It is never easy chasing these last percentages of something that’s already a top performer, so it took us some time to really understand where we would be able to make the good even better.
By then, we also began thinking of how we could celebrate 25 years of Feliks Audio, and that gave us the idea to create a truly exceptional amplifier, that would excel in both sound performance and aesthetics. As we limited the production to just 25 units, we had more liberty on applying some expensive solutions that would not make sense in a regular production model. The main upgrades include custom-made amorphous core output transformers, a different power transformer, Elrog 300B Feliks-branded power tubes and various other upgrades – all carefully chosen to get the desired synergy effect. And, of course, it comes in a stunning black piano finish.
