Electrostatic Headphones with Amplifier.


For those of you who love electrostatic headphones, you are going to be drooling

over the crisp detailed sound from these

ultra comfortable headphones.  The electrostatic loudspeaker is very simple in concept, but difficult to construct successfully in practice.

Its operation relies on electrostatic attraction and repulsion, in much the same way as a piece of thin paper attracted to a rubber balloon that is charged by rubbing it against fabric, While hats off to those established in the world of high end Electrostatic headphones for delivering superb audio reproduction many simply adore and aspire to one day owning, KingSound have taken a new leap forward with their new series and the price to performance ratio has improved dramarically meaning that dream is now a new reality .

In past few years many of the most demanding music lovers and audiophiles discovered the unique sound of non oversampling DACs. With the ever expanding market of digital audio (files and streaming services) more and more people are discovering the world of digital audio. The biggest challenge for any DAC is the sound. Digital by default sounds very different compared to analog and we’ve spent countless hours for the perfect voicing, that resembles best qualities of the analog. The result is one of the kind emotional and transparent sonic performance, that is possible due to refined design choices. dac1 uses not less then eight matched Phillips TDA1543 DACs in a complex parallel configuration and dual triode tube output stage.
