Eddie Current

The premier manufacturer of vacuum tube headphone amplifiers for the audiophile


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.

Instead of four 2A3 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.

Limited Run

We've been trying to keep this under wraps for a while, but unfortunately, the secret is out. 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.

Because of the rarity of some of the components used, this will be a very limited run. It's probable that by the time you read this, it may already be too late.
