Build Features

The G109 sports an internal power supply that feeds an upgraded toroidal power transformer with large filtering capacitors to help keep unwanted noise from entering into the signal path. To insure good channel balance and low crosstalk, this totally discrete amplifier design features an outstanding Alps volume control pot located inside the sleek black anodized aluminum casing.

Power Supplied

Not every portable player and default computer headphone jack has what it takes to fully complement audiophile headphones. The Lake People G109 can take your favorite pair of cans to the next level with more power and shove to improve dynamics, bass impact and overall fidelity than the noisy environments where internal amplification typically takes place. To ensure the best performance with the widest range of headphones, this standalone amplifier also allows for gain switching in three steps.
