S T E P   I N T O   T H E   M U S I C . . . What is the sound of Eddie Current? The sound of engagement. Most other headphone amps sound pretty good at first, but in less than an hour of listening, either fatigue or boredom sets in. That's when you find yourself thinking about getting back to work, watching YouTube, or looking for a new amp. With Eddie Current amps, you'll never want to stop listening. They are designed to break the barrier between you and the music. This is why owners of Eddie Current gear eventually get fired from their jobs: they stay up too late into the wee hours of the morning listening to their amps.


BLACK WIDOW

   

$1289



Crisp, fast, clear, and lively; yet posessing an organic tone belying its solid-state circuitry and small footprint. Class A headphone amplifier using bipolar discrete transistors. No coupling caps and no FETs.

Now in a single 16" wide chassis with an optional balanced input option (the amp is single ended, but provides for a 4-pin XLR output for convenience).

ZANA DEUX S

   

$2389



The sound of luxury. Let its euphony transport you into the twilight zone. OTL (output transformerless) single-ended headphone amplifier. 6C33C-B power triodes and 6SL7 driver. 6D22S rectifier tubes. NEW for 2015: "S" super version with Japanese oil paper caps and circuit tweaks.

BALANCING ACT

   

$3989



Lush, organic, and spacious. The amp that set the initial bar for all headphone amplifiers. 6SN7 driver and 300B DHT balanced headamp and preamp with space-age high frequency filament heaters. NEW for 2015: Revised custom OPTs.

MONOLITH DIY

   

$50


You provide the chassis, buy the parts in the BOM, and put everything together. Schematics and BOM included.

THE STUDIO JR.

  


$4289 Tentative Pricing
Available 2016



Instead of four output tubes, there are two. This amp uses the same chassis as the BA but with an different take on the sound. A lower cost alternative to the Studio, the Junior uses similar Cinemag transformers with the tertiary windings.

This is the most transparent amp we know how to make without the use of exotic difficult to source parts. Those who desire a more classic tube sound should opt for the Balancing Act.

THE STUDIO

   

$7000
Limited Run




This is the best amp that Eddie Current builds. It's all about speed, resolution, space, and accuracy. The topology is similar to the 2A3mk4, but with internal improvements. A 45 tube version can be built upon request.

Inquiries for loaners, review units, or accommodations by the audio press or secret audio societies will be expressly denied by Eddie Current. We have to take care of our customers first. We hope you understand. However, you are always welcome to visit us in sunny Calabasas for a listen.
