in Amplifiers, Headphones

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Cypher Labs as Audiophilia’s newest sponsor.

I ran across the great folks at Cypher Labs during the recent Capital Audiofest in Washington DC. They were showing their gorgeous Prautes tube headphone amplifier (US$3900) and invited me to sit down for a listen. In a moment of Schubert, I could tell the sound was ultra refined and dynamic. There’ll be more about the Prautes when it comes in for a full review. Now, to choose a headphone that will do this high end audio jewel justice.

The PRAUTES® is a world class vacuum tube headphone amplifier at an affordable, all inclusive price of $3900.

Cypher Labs’ Founder and CEO David Maudlin runs a tight ship and surrounds himself with excellence. Like all good leaders. The team I met at the DC show were very professional yet friendly and know how to use social media to present and promote their wonderful products. High end audio industry, please take note. It’s the future. And Cypher Labs is there.

Maudlin says ‘Our products showcase reference-level digital-to-analog converters, headphone amplifiers, as well as converter products that deliver high-resolution digital audio to other makes and models of audiophile equipment.’ I can’t wait to get started.

The Prautes is indeed a fine sounding headphone amplifier and looks better aesthetically in it’s darker faceplate iteration. The Prautes is actually made by Dan Coffman (www.coffmanlabs.com) and is an evolution of his H1-A headphone amplifier.
