Product Description

Note: the Audeze EL-8 is scheduled for release in late February.  The ALO Green Line, 6', headphone cable will eventually be part of this package, but these cables are not available yet for the EL-8 (the cable is not included in the current price).

 

Code-name: THE MICRON

Sonic Character: The Micron is the relatively compact combination of the immediate, speedy and agile Mytek Stereo192-DSD DAC and the nuanced and dynamic Audeze EL-8 headphones.

 

The Gear:

Audeze EL8 Headphones: The EL-8 is the most refined headphone we've encountered in its price range. As Head-Fi says, the detail of the EL-8 is only a slight step behind the LCD-X model, at half the price and 3/4 of the weight.  The EL-8 is the first Audeze headphone that's really well-suited for a mobile setup.  Choose the Closed-back model if you expect to listen in a noisy environment or just want to prevent anyone near you from hearing sound from your music.

Mytek Stereo192-DSD: The Mytek Stereo192-DSD is a DAC, headphone amp and preamp combo and winner of numerous awards, such as the Postive Feedback Brustus Award and the Darko Knockout award.  Designed by renowned Polish digital engineer Michal Jurewicz, this unit is leading-edge technology, in a price range that's affordable to the average audiophile.  Like its big brother, the Mytek Manhattan, the Stereo192-DSD has extensive ability to adjust the sound, with upsampling up to double-DSD.  The unit includes a remote control and can also be used as a complete 2-channel system with the addition of a power amplifier and speakers.

6’ ALO Green Line Headphone Cable: The Wywires Red headphone cable provides a nice upgrade from stock cables. The character of this cable is close up and intimate, with excellent micro-detail and timing precision. All Wywires cables use high-purity Litz copper conductor, which have been phase-aligned and encased inside a sealed Teflon tube with an air barrier.  This cable allows us to use the 4-pin balanced output of the International+.

2M Nanotec Systems #308 “Wonderful” Power Cable: Nanotec are Japanese cables that follow a basic formula with each of their products.  A selected type of high performance copper is measured in the company's laboratory for its electrical properties and based on the results a certain mixture of gold and silver nano particles is applied to the copper conductor.  The #308 cable, released in 2015 is one of the first audio cables in the world to use the new Japanese Triple PC copper as its conductor; if you've heard of Ohno Continuous Crystal copper, this is the new version.

1A Synergy HiFi Nanotec Fuses: Synergy fuses have a conductor coated with gold and silver nano particles. These fuses are directional and finding the correct direction will make a difference. The company offers limited types and values, but what they do offer is really good.
