Beautifully Detailed Sound
The Little Country III turns every listening session into a lush Audiophile experience. It features a rich, beautifully detailed sound from top to bottom and a superb soundstage. You’ll find yourself lost in the music - almost hypnotic like.
Every once in a while an audio product comes along that exceeds the expectations of even the most demanding listener, and so it is with the LC3.
Compatible with the world’s best headphones.
As you would expect the LC3 is compatible with the worlds best headphones and you’ll definitely want premium quality headphones or earbuds to fully enjoy the LC3. Those “throw away” ear buds you got with your MP3 player won’t cut it here.
The external gain switch lets you adjust for any brand or model of headphones from 28 ohms to 300 ohms.
The LC3 received many important design changes and upgrades. The most significant being the addition of the all new power regulation module that now occupies the lower section of the main unit. The power supply unit is now in separate module.
The three sets of gold plated RCA plugs are for Input, Bypass and Preamp output. The LC3 accepts its input from any source component including CD/DVD players, phono stage, Tuner, DAC, and even your iPod or other portable player.
To make sure the power transfers safely and efficiently between modules the LC3s power cable is equipped with threaded connectors.
On the rear panel you’ll find the gain switch and AC power connection.
A new Power Regulation Module occupies the lower section of the main unit. The power conditioning benefits of this new module add to the startling sonic purity of the LC3. This new module also incorporates a new soft start circuit to prevent a rush of current to the tubes at start up. A headphone and speaker protection circuit is also part of this major upgrade.
Why all this fuss about power conditioning?
In high-end audio the power supply and power conditioning sections make up a large percentage of the cost of every component. Most Audiophiles understand that a source of clean, consistent, regulated power is essential for great sound and a low noise floor. This fact was not lost on the Firestone engineers who paid special attention to this section. Better power = better sound.
A whisper Quiet Tube Headphone Amp?
You won't find that old TUBE AMP HUM with the LC3. The Firestone designers successfully engineered the LC3 to run super quiet. This helps reveal more of the low level detail in your music, detail you may not have been hearing, detail that was previously veiled by noise.
