Looking for a 'Good Home'
w/loving audiophile seriously interested in owning the absolute BEST Headphone Amp combination in the world - we Guarantee the Best delivered prices on ALL high-end headphones,....
Have had several customers purchase this set-up and SELL their speakers......it's THAT GOOD!
Exclusive amplifier technology
The King was designed exclusively for Audeze by legendary circuit builder Bascom King. It’s a two-stage hybrid design featuring a pair of twin-triode E88CCs input tubes, a differential P-MOSFET driver, and MOSFET output devices. The King uses NPN MOSFETs that allow perfect device matching that yields faster response times. The amplifier exhibits low impedance, low distortion, and wide frequency response along with its 6W of music power, characteristics that create a breathtakingly spacious and emotional listening experience.
Engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
The King’s anodized casework is beautifully done and solid as a vault. The side panels are fully 1/2" thick, the top and bottom 1/4" thick, featuring a 5/8" thick clear-coated front panel. All active components are "faraday cage" shielded along with the AC input to reduce RFI. The front-panel meters are engineered to reflect actual SPLs and power levels when used with the LCD-4.
The King Effect
Bascom King’s exclusive design for Audeze includes such perfectionist elements as left and right channels on separate PCBs, each with its own voltage regulators. Each PCB features a protective shield of perforated, powder-coated magnetic material. The toroidal transformer is massively oversized, molded in epoxy and shielded to further improve signal-to-noise ratio. A DC servo circuit between input and output stages keeps DC offset as close to zero as possible. And a symmetrical regulated power supply delivers ±16V DC to the output devices and there are no capacitors in the signal path resulting in virtually flat frequency response.
The LCD-4 represents 40 years of advancements in planar magnetic technology and our own research and development from 2009 onward when we debuted our first product. Our new flagship headphone features game-changing technology, like its first-of-the-kind nano-scale diaphragm with Double Fluxor Magnet
Exclusive LCD-4 planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for accuracy
The LCD-4 is far and away Audeze’s most advanced headphone featuring innovative planar magnetic technology that delivers startling dynamics and incredibly open and spacious sound.
Near weightless nano-scale diaphragm
The LCD-4 features our most advanced diaphragm design; our exclusive nano-scale film actually weighs less than the air it displaces! Benefits include faster response times for better imaging, and the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone available.
Audeze nearly doubles the magnetic driving force
Double-Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux to a previously unheard of 1.5 Tesla, nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for improved transient response and far greater resolution.
Near zero distortion
Patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.
Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance for a more accurate waveform.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
The LCD-4 headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. It takes four weeks to finish the beautifully-finished 30-year-old Macassar Ebony wood rings, a dense finely-textured hardwood with a very smooth finish when polished. We closely match transducers, then match our rings by grain and color. We match earpads by leather texture and color. Choose real lambskin leather or microsuede headbands. The earpads are filled with carefully chosen acoustical foam. Pair the LCD-4 with our King Headphone Amplifier for a breathtaking experience.
Industrial Design by Audeze
You’ll be proud of how the LCD-4 sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings manufactured at our facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.
