Auris made a name for themselves in 2013 with their high-end headphone amplifier designs and have continued this momentum with their new portable Earmen range.
They will be running a 30% discount on their Euterpe DAC/headphone amplifier ($1,699 USD), one of their most popular and highly rated models. The Euterpe features an integrated DSD-capable ESS Sabre DAC, unbalanced NOS tube amplifier and impedance selector and linear PSU. It has a gorgeous wooden construction and small footprint designed to stand upright and double as a headphone stand.
I had the opportunity to demo the Euterpe and found it to have a highly ear-pleasing tonality and an involving presentation, if not quite the same cleanliness of the super-technical solid-state amp designs that are now commonplace. It is an elegant piece of performance hardware that surely deserves a listen.
