Feliks Audio Elise Headphone Amp
Elise is the Hi-Fi headphone amplifier with great tuning potential. It is the mid-range headphone tube amplifier in Feliks Audio portfolio. It was initially launched in 2014 and recently received a significant revision for model year 2018 – key upgrades being a new high end audio transformer, move to PsVane UK-6SN7 driver tubes and implementing safety features in pre-amp circuit as well as “soft cut-off” on power on/off.
Elise offers exceptionally dynamic sound stage and superb level of detail with the typical “tube” feel. The amplifier is a fully proprietary OTL design, hand-crafted here in Poland and built as point to point connections from high quality, carefully selected components,allowing it to deliver exceptional sound quality on a broad range of headphones, including low impedance headphones (32 ohm). It is also a good looking piece of equipment, with its black, minimalistic and impeccably finished housing.
As the amplifier is using a popular 6SN7 for driver tubes and 6AS7G (or 6080) for power tubes and has a significant power/current safety buffer, Elise has earned reputation of having huge tuning potential. This has been now further improved with new more sturdy tubes sockets in model 2018. Alternatively, Elise can be used as pre-amp for both tube and transistor amplifiers. We have many customers using Elise to add the high quality tube feel to their speakerphone systems. Same as all other Feliks Audio amplifiers, Elise is covered by 36 months warranty (12 months for tubes) and free customer service support.
