G111 is the successor of famous Lake People G100 which can be regarded as the ancestor of the HiFi / HiEnd units from Lake People and Violectric. Phone-Amp G100 was the first item from Lake People which was widely used by professional and private customers. Professionals praised the indestructible construction while private users loved the exceptional sound quality. We have revised again our G111 MK II and can say with pride: This is the best G111 (Mk II) we have ever made !
PHONE-AMP G111 MK II includes all major construction details which are still important for us: - transistorized amplifiers for unmatched transmission quality - smooth performing RK 27 Potentiometer for volume control - oversized power supply with toroidal transformer
Also, PHONE-AMP G100 / G111 defined for the first time or technical guidelines which are still unique in their combination: LOWEST NOISE because of low internal gain. Therefor the self-generated noise from the amplifier is inaudible.
HIGHEST OUTPUT VOLTAGE through 60 Volt internal operating voltage. Over 90 % of all headphone amplifiers in the market offer not half that voltage !! Therefor best suited for high impedance headphones.
HIGHEST OUTPUT POWER because of powerful amplifiers able to deliver much more current a headphone needs. Therefore best suited for low impedance headphones and even magnetostatic cans !!
HIGH DAMPING FACTOR through lowest output impedance. Therefore best suited for full control even over critical headphones with the guarantee to have flatest possible response.
PRE-GAIN 5-fold adjustable gain for optimal matching to all sources and all headphones.
By the way: the launching of Violectric w was due to the marketing success of PHONE-AMP G100 !
The Features: - balanced inputs via gold plated XLR connectors - unbalanced inputs via gold plated RCA connectors - PRE-GAIN: internal gain adaption in five steps - channel separated circuitry for minimized crosstalk - discrete amplifier design with 4 transistors per channel (V100 Technology !) - NF transmission band exceeds 150 kHz (-3 dB) - High-Grade Potentiometer Alps RK 27 with optimized channel balance and lowest cross talk - toroidal transformer, large smoothing capacitors - outputs with relay controlled switch-on delay - compact and extremely rugged aluminum case
