NIIMBUS US 4
ULTIMATE SERIES HEADPHONE AMPILIFIER
Niimbus, the new high-end brand from the engineers of Lake People.
Based on the experiences of more than three decades of Lake People development, as well as the technical and optical demands of the Violectric brand raised to a new, previously unknown quality level, the name extension of the Niimbus devices is therefore logically "Ultimate Series". Devices with the Niimbus label stand for a special design, extraordinary technology and uncompromising quality - of course "Handmade in Germany".
The US 4 model has three headphone connection options, one balanced and two unbalanced. Reduced to the essentials, there are rear buttons to switch between balanced and unbalanced inputs and adjust the pre-gain to match the headphones.
Niimbus US 4 and US 4+ represent the uncompromising evolution of the renowned, high-quality headphone amplifiers from Violectric. During the three years of development work, no compromises in circuit design, component and material costs were made to create a headphone amplifier with outstanding audiophile characteristics
The completely redeveloped channel-separated and 100% analog amplifier circuit features hand-selected audiophile components and has been optimized for lowest noise and highest performance even on very low-impedance headphones.
