Analog Artistry has created a new portable analogue amplifier called Leo, that has been specifically designed to allow you to enjoy analogue sound from any modern device.
Leo is a portable headphone analog amplifier that has been created to emulate the warm tones of vintage audio equipment by connecting to your smartphone and headphones. Watch the video below to learn more about the Leo project.
The Analog Artistry Leo project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $10,000 in pledges to take their analog amplifier into production.
“Connect Leo to any smartphone or music player to your favorite headphones to experience the sound that vinyl lovers have been raving about without the expense and hassle. Analog Artistry explains :
Leo brings a presence to music, as if listening to a live performance. The tonal quality provides warmth and power while preserving delicate high frequencies. Leo brings out the best performance from any pair of headphones.
Leo looks as clean as it sounds. Constructed with a rugged extruded aluminum body, CNC carved aluminum knobs, and precision laser cut faceplates available in a choice of black acrylic, walnut veneer, or smooth black leather. Units come standard with soft yellow LED backlighting. Premium units come with UV LED backlighting.
Modern audio equipment only delivers audio within a flat and narrow range of tones. Leo delivers a much larger range of frequencies while recreating the exact tonal quality of premium vintage amplifiers. While we can’t hear tones below a certain range – we canfeel them. The unique tonal curves correct for psychoacoustic phenomena leading to a sound quality full of warmth, feeling, and presence.“
