Lake People presents the new headphone amplifier G111. Driving one or two sets of headphones, the G111 operates with all kinds of drivers, from high- impedance to low-impedance to planar magnetic designs.
The G111 can even be optimized for different headphones through the Pre Gain function. With outstanding specifications, the amplifier achieves the sonic clarity and transparency sought after by audio professionals and music enthusiasts alike. The G111 can easily be integrated into professional and hifi environments through gold-plated XLR and RCA connectors.
Excellent sound for studio and living room
With the G111, Lake People addresses the need of professional and private audio enthusiasts for a powerful, versatile and compact headphone amplifier. The clean and unadulterated playback through the amplifier circuit puts audio professionals in a position to assess and evaluate their material, which leads to quicker and better decisions. Private users benefit from the sheer sonic quality of the G111, resulting in an uncompromised music experience. The subjective sound impression has its roots in objective data: a linear frequency response from 5 Hz to 60 kHz (with 0.5 dB tolerance) and 129 dB dynamic range.
Ready for any headphone type
Different types of headphones require different qualities from the amplifier that drives them. Due to its special circuitry, the Lake People G111 can drive any type of headphones. It works with an unusually high internal operating voltage of 60 volts, enabling it to easily drive high-impedance headphones, while at the same time, the discreet power amplifiers offer plenty of output to feed low-impedance headphones and even planar magnetic drivers. The unique Pre Gain feature can adjust output levels in five steps to adapt the amplifier to the headphones. Audiophiles and demanding professionals can freely choose their preferred set of headphones, and a later change of mind does not necessitate a change of amplifier.
High-quality craftsmanship and materials
Lake People is known for its high-quality products, and the G111 continues this tradition. The main controller is an Alps RK 27 potentiometer, setting the volume with a comfortable feel. The oversized power supply with toroidal transformer ensures clean, low-distortion playback. The balanced XLR connectors and the unbalanced RCA connectors are gold-plated. The newly designed aluminium front panel features the power switch and the aforementioned volume control plus the two 1⁄4 inch headphone jacks to drive two headphones simultaneously.
