Leeloo

The Leeloo was cheeckily named after the main character in the movie The 5th Element… Love! Leeloo is a unique amplifier combining headphone amp and stereo with dedicated taps for each and a volume control to provide easy integration with any source. Leeloo is the best of single-ended bliss, ultra linear power and mild feedback for improved frequency extension and noise floor. Paring a single 12ax7 in the preamp section with a pair of EL84s, the SE-84 doesn’t require an external preamp and can be driven to full output with an iPod or smartphone. Coupling caps are high grade Wima, we use 2% resistors, and our usual robust power supply including massive choke regulation to drive the D/C ripple and noise floor to the lowest levels we every seen. The SE-84 driven by an iPod makes a fantastic combo for a 2nd system or smaller room. 2.6 watts may not seem enough, but the bass presence and sound stage will make a convert of you. Perhaps the most astonishing feature of Leeloo is the 1watt into 32ohm loads able to drive even the most demanding headphones with ease.
The SE-84 is small in physical size (12”x 10”) and built into a gorgeous Solid Eastern Walnut Cab with ebony corners. The finish is hand rubbed lacquer. The SE-84 will be at home in your rack or as a statement piece in your office.

Each amspandsound amp is built with attention to grounding schemes – star grounding and use of common ground contributing to its very low noise floor and wide bandwidth. Leeloo pairs well with most speakers 89db and above, but like all our amplifiers it is quiet enough to use with full-range or horn-loaded speakers having 100db efficiency and above. Speakers that can go cleanly down to 30hz really bring out the very best of the amp.
