TheSMA- (SmartModular Amplifier) - Headphone
The Smart Modular Amplifier (TheSMA) represents a new idea in audio. The goal of this design is to offer a high resolution amplifier with an accurate spatial stereo representation and a deeply musical dynamic and neutral sound to accommodate every kind of headphone. TheSMA takes a modular and flexible approach, allowing owners to enjoy the benefits of additional features and personalization.
TheSMA is encased in a vivid high-quality chassis developed with Italian designers from "lamatilde" that can be personalized to the customer's taste. It departs from the mainstream high-end classical look to offer simplicity of use and a modern look in domestic environments.
The heart of TheSMA is a hybrid balanced gain stage, dubbed MULTI-TUBE Balanced Gain Stage. The user can swap different noval audio tubes and the stage will automatically balance the device. The performance of the MULTI-TUBE stage will be slightly different as it is optimized for a given working current. Hence it will return to the listener all the subtle nuances of the different tubes. This gain stage has been developed with tube rolling in mind. An optional dual DAC for PCM and DSD formats, a hybrid jFET/tube MM phono stage and one or two power buffers can be installed in TheSMA to best fit your needs.
