AURIS AUDIO EUTERPE - A DELIGHTFUL VALVE HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER
Auris Audio has just announced the Euterpe high-end headphone amplifier.
You might recognise Auris from our review of their most excellent Poison 8 speakers. Today we bring you news of their latest headphones amplifier Euterpe.
If you are up on your Greek mythology, you will already be aware that Euterpe was one of the nine Muses. Charged with being the Goddess of music and a ''giver of delight'' Auris Audio decided that the same moniker was befitting of their latest release.
The new head-amp was named by an Auris Audio fan. The company reached out to people on social media looking for name suggestions. After many submissions, a winner was chosen: EVTERPE (Euterpe).
Mr Leonidas Kostopoulos from Athens, Greece won the competition with his suggestion to name it after the Greek Muse. Not only has Mr Kostopoulos named the component, but he will also receive the completed headphone amplifier as a prize! Nice.
Euterpe is designed in a single-ended configuration and boasts an asynchronous XMOS/ESS Sabre DAC, enabling you to hook up a variety of digital sources such as a PC or mobile device.
As seems to be the current trend, the Euterpe also doubles up as a cool headphone stand thanks to its classy wooden casing.
Auris Audio headphone amplifiers generally have a deep sound-stage, excellent tonality and top-level dynamics.
You can order the Euterpe now for 1499€.
