Metaxas Marquis Headphone Amplifier

What to say about this grim visage - this bit of HiFi-skullduggery? It's a world-class headphone amplifier masquerading as a reminder of your own mortality, that doubles as the most badass headphone stand ever, and hides a truly jaw-dropping preamplifier to round it out. Also... Just *look at it*. Holy crap. Buy it already.

$6750.00

The MARQUIS borrows from over 25 years of concert recording
experience with serious headphone monitoring to produce an
amplifier with unparalleled transparency and effortless realism.
Like all Metaxas & Sins amplifiers, the CNC-machined “head block”
can be meticulously finished in a choice of 10 aluminum colors, or
automotive painted finishes.

As well as a dedicated headphone amplifier and headphone stand,
the MARQUIS also can be used as a minimalist preamplifier with a
choice of 2 line-level inputs [RCA connectors] and a set of RCA
outputs to connect to a power amplifier to drive a pair of speakers.
The solid CNC-machined base encloses the power supply to keep all
stray RFI and noise from the delicate low-level signal stages, but also
can be offered with optional “battery-pack” so that you can use the
Marquis for over 5 hours before needing a recharge.
