A quick peek at Wikipedia gives you the definition of liquid fire as: an ancient Greek hot oil / fire weapon; an ancient Chinese petroleum weapon; Napalm; an eight piece rock band from St Joseph Missouri and; molten rock. Cavalli Audio, will soon be adding to this list with their new up-and-coming headphone amplifier.
Cavalli is introducing its first consumer headphone amplifier – the Liquid Fire. The Liquid Fire headphone amplifier is a tube / solid-state hybrid design. Tesla 6922 tubes create the differential input stage, current source and voltage gain. Mosfets biased at 100mA for mostly class A operation power the outputs for 3 watts into 32? (650mW into 300?).
Expected availability is this May 15, 2011 at an MSRP of $2750 U.S. Pre-production amps should be available for review in early March.
