Holo Audio – Azure – Discrete 8 amp module headphone amplifier
Azure is just an amp. So by function, it’s nothing particularly special at first glance. Just an headphone amp + pre-amp. Right? However, the key for Azure is the full discrete amp modules. There are 8 of them inside the Azure. 4 channels to be a fully balanced amp. And each channel has 2 discrete amp, one for buffering and one to amplify. Jeff Zhu has put tremendous amounts of time to develop this amp and has researched a way to get more detail and natural sound from a discrete transistor based amplifier. This is more comparable to tube sound however with better detail retrieval.
