Description

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:

LOWEST NOISE
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. 

The Features:

- balanced inputs via gold plated XLR connectors
- unbalanced inputs via gold plated RCA connectors
- PRE-GAIN: gain adaption in five steps
- channel separated circuitry for minimized crosstalk
- discrete amplifier design with 4 transistors per channel (V100 Technology !)
- NF transmission band exceeds 150 kHz (-3 dB)
- High-Grade Potentiometer Alps RK 27 with optimized channel balance and lowest cross talk
- toroidal transformer, large smoothing capacitors
- outputs with relay controlled switch-on delay
- ultra compact rugged aluminum case

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.

Imbattibile rapporto qualità prezzo

Premetto che ho fatto l'acquisto a scatola chiusa, senza possibilità di provare l'ampli, sulla base solamente di opinioni visualizzate sui forum del settore (da prendere, come si sa, con le pinze). Non sono rimasto insoddisfatto di questo salto nel vuoto, ma, anzi, stupito da quanto ci ho indovinato facendo così.
Ovviamente la "macchina" si deve scaldare un po', come tutte le elettroniche necessita di un rodaggio minimo, ma già dopo alcune ore di funzionamento comincia a rivelare i suoi pregi: non carica di timbriche particolari quello che arriva dalle sorgenti, ma lascia semplicemente esprimere alle cuffie quello che hanno da esprimere. In particolare, io ho delle Sennheiser HD 660s, che finalmente hanno spiccato il volo (l'espressione può sembrare magniloquente, ma giuro che addirittura non rende abbastanza la differenza positiva di resa), restituendomi tutto quello che hanno di loro in termini di dettaglio e di vivacità dei suoni.
Importantissima la funzione di regolazione del gain, in funzione dell'impedenza delle cuffie; un po' scomodo il settaggio (bisogna aprire con una brugoletta il coperchio e regolare manualmente i due jumpers nella posizione desiderata), ma una volta effettuato, e provato in funzione degli ohm e dei propri giusti, si è tendenzialmente a posto (può essere solo scomodo per chi ama usare cuffie differenti a seconda dei tipi di musica, con impedenze diverse). Consiglio solo di fare il test di regolazione del guadagno tenendo la manopola del volume verso ore 11.00/12.00.
Insomma: sto cambiando radicalmente la catena, passando ad una categoria nettamente superiore, ma cuffie ed ampli dedicato ormai non li metto in discussione nemmeno per scherzo, in quanto grazie all'abbinamento con il G111 ho tutto quello che mi serve.
Con il prezzo di listino già sono un affare, con il prezzo di lancio è imperativo averle.

Mi ha piacevolmente stupito

Ormai è da un mese che lo sto usando, mi ritengo pienamente soddisfatto.
Ero alla ricerca di un amplificatore per cuffie da affiancare al Gold Note HP7, volevo qualcosa di semplice e non troppo costoso da collegare direttamente al computer per ascolti veloci o per guardare film senza la necessità di accendere il DAC, oltrettutto mi servivano due configurazioni diverse, una da usare con cuffie aperte e l'altra per le chiuse e non mi piaceva continuare a togliere e mettere jack.
Ho svariate cuffie, ma le preferite del momento sono le Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO da 80ohm e le DT 880 Edition da 250ohm, ammetto che con l'HP7 quest'ultime arrancavano un po', ma comunque il suono mi piaceva, almeno finché non è arrivato il G111.
Veniamo al dunque, una volta aperta la spartana confezione e collegato il piccoletto le 880 hanno preso il volo, palcoscenico più aperto, bassi più precisi, una dinamica incredibile, l'ho provato con altre cuffie e in tutte ho notato un miglioramento, così, da "muletto" il G111 è diventato il principe.
Non fatevi ingannare dalle dimensioni compatte e dal design spartano, questo è un amplificatore che fa quello che deve fare e lo fa veramente bene, quindi lo consiglio vivamente, anche perché ha connessioni bilanciate e sbilanciate commutabili tramite un interrutore sul retro, quindi gli si possono collegare tranquillamente due sorgenti, all'interno sono presenti i jumper per regolare il guadagno ottimale, ma non ho avuto bisogno di usarli, in quanto con i 250ohm non vado oltre metà volume.

    Salve sarei interessato a questo amplificatore per cuffie, non sono proprio un esperto in questo settore musicale, quindi avrei bisogno di un vostro consiglio, uso un ifi zen dac con delle sennheiser hd 660s collegato ad iMac per ascolto in scrivania, siccome lo zen può essere usato come preamplificatore con delle uscite rca e collegarlo ad un amplificatore esterno, e fattibile secondo voi? E comunque ne avrei un guadagno in qualità di ascolto? Accetto anche vostro consiglio per qualsiasi modello che potrebbe fare al mio caso, grazie.
