PHONE AMP G111 is the successor of famous Lake People G100 which can be regarded as the ancestor of the HiFi / Hi-End units from Lake People and Violectric. Phone-Amp G100 was the first item from Lake People which was widely used by professional and private customers. Professionals praised the indestructible construction while private users loved the exceptional sound quality.
PHONE-AMP G100 / G111 includes all major construction details which are still important:
- transistorized amplifiers for unmatched transmission quality
- smooth performing RK 27 Potentiometer for volume control
- oversized power supply with toroidal transformer
Also, PHONE-AMP G100 / G111 defined for the first time or technical guidelines which are still unique in their combination:
because of low internal gain. Therefore the self-generated noise from the amplifier is not audible.
HIGHEST OUTPUT VOLTAGE
through 60 Volt internal operating voltage. Over 90 % of all headphone amplifiers in the market offer not half that voltage !! Therefore best suited for high impedance headphones.
HIGHEST OUTPUT POWER
because of powerful amplifiers able to deliver much more current a headphone needs. Therefore best suited for low impedance headphones and even magnetostatic cans !!
HIGH DAMPING FACTOR
through lowest output impedance. Therefore best suited for full control even over critical headphones with the guarantee to have flatest possible response.
By the way: the launching of Violectric was due to the marketing success of PHONE-AMP G100 !
PHONE-AMP model G111-B is BLACK finish, and model G111-S is Silver finish.

Introduction to Lake People
Established in 1986, we have since become your partner for professional audio electronics. Following our motto “tools - not toys”, we achieved highest reputation during the past years amongst our customers. These are private studios, broadcasters and TV companies. Also airports, congress and exhibition centres count on the reliability of our products made in Germany. This all began under the roof of Rosgartenstrasse 13 in the city of Konstanz. Here, three young guys started with the development and manufacture of limiters and noise gates but not too successfully in the beginning. The commercial survival on a very low level was made possible by the production of headphone amplifiers. From 1989 on, the production range was extended to level matching and balancing amplifiers such successfully, that it came essential to move to larger premises.
Since 1991, the new address read: Haidelmoosweg 52. Due to the developement of the first german 20-bit A/D and D/A converters in the beginning nineties, the name Lake People resounded throughout the land. Suddenly, the company was regarded as a high-tech brand, with a highly positive effect on its public reputation. The growing know-how led to many new products in the analog and digital domain during the following years. Although some projects turned out to be flops, most devices met the customers' requirements, with the effect of continuous growth of the company. By the end of the nineties the 140 m² of Haidelmoosweg 52 went cramping.
Again, a move to new premises came necessary. As it was obvious that rental facilities would not meet the demands, we decided to put up our own building. The company site was constructed in 2000 in a new industrial park in Konstanz, Turmstrasse 7a, just a hundred metres from the lake. Also in 2000, Lake People was transformed into a Ltd. company.
