For the most part, everyone enjoys music. Whether through a pair of headphones, car stereo, home stereo, or Amazon Echo, most all of us love music. The way we enjoy music has drastically changed over the years and for some, it’s changed in a bad way. CERES wants to give you the opportunity to experience the way music used to be listened to. Grant it, CERES is probably not for everyone. There are many users who are more than happy with the sound solution they’ve chosen. But for those who long for tube amp audiophile sound from their headphones, this could be something to take a look at.
CERES is designed around a Classic Sound, Single Tube Architecture. The Dual-Triode tube amplifies the incoming signal which is then routed to the Class-A Solid State buffer to provide the proper power to drive a wide variety of headphones.
User selectable attenuation and output impedance ensure the best sound possible with virtually any headphones. CERES can also be used as a line amplifier/buffer between low drive power sources (such as smartphones, music players, LP record players, etc) and your existing stereo system.
An important feature of CERES is the two levels of selectable attenuation. High attenuation is ideal when using CERES as a line amp or buffer for a smartphone or other low drive power source. Low attenuation ensures CERES delivers the proper level of output voltage (up to 6V RMS) needed for high impedance headphones. Having both options ensures Ceres will be fully optimized to your listening environment.
The company is running a Kickstarter to fund the project and there are a whole lot more geeky and technical details that can be had on their page. So be sure to hit the link below to find out more and throw your money at them if you dig what they’re working on.
