Product Description

The Graham Slee Solo Ultra Linear Diamond Edition is Graham Slee's flagship headphone amplifier and boy does it let music flow, one of the finest headphones listening partners we've ever heard. When the band throws everything into the mix the Solo Ultra Linear headphone amplifier doesn't lose the plot.

At last, this is a headphone amp that does away with the sharp glaring edginess so common in today's other models. It replaces this with all the music - all its scale, power and emotion. However one chooses to define "all the music", the Solo Ultra Linear headphone amplifier does it that way!

Why is this headphone amplifier so special?

So what's the Solo Ultra Linear secret? Well, there are many, but one is that distortion remains consistently low throughout the audio spectrum. Why? Because its bandwidth is exceptionally wide before the application of "negative feedback". Solid state headphone amps use negative feedback as a fix for distortion as well as noise but also to widen bandwidth. However, all this succeeds in doing is adding "glare". The highs also affect sound at bass and mid frequencies because leading edge of a note is fast - if the highs are distorted much of the fine detailing in the bass and mid frequencies is lost. By improving on distortion linearly throughout the entire audio band the sound stage comes alive as you've never had before.

Another one of the Solo Ultra Linear secrets is greater input linearity: usually a solid state amp cannot take much input signal before it is overdriven when it distorts badly and copious amounts of negative feedback have to be applied to correct it. What you end up with is restructured music that doesn't quite hit the spot. Some claim "no negative feedback" but if that were the case all you'd hear is distortion!

Like most headphone amps, the Ultra Linear is basically a pair of transistor assisted op-amps, but these feature one of the best output stages ever designed. As authored by J L Linsley Hood, it remains the most musical of output stages and is class-A. To these we add our proprietary open-loop bandwidth widening technique and the difference is staggering.
