Linear Tube Audio z10e
LTA is excited to announce the Z10e Electrostatic Headphone Amplifier. With all the magic, realism, and 3D soundstage of ZOTL technology, the Z10e delivers one of the best electrostatic headphone experiences available. In addition, the Z10e is a full function regular dynamic and planar headphone amplifier and a 12-watt per channel integrated speaker amplifier.
A single component solution, the Z10e incorporates the acclaimed ZOTL10 power amplifier, a Berning-designed preamplifier, and the LTA control system with three inputs – all packaged in a beautiful aluminum low-resonance case designed by Fern & Roby.
With startling realism, plentiful bass, and gorgeous mids and highs – 3D music seems as if it’s appearing from a silent, black background.
The LED array display and the milled aluminum front and rear panels exude high quality manufacturing, handmade in the USA.
The Z10e offers all the benefits of the ZOTL technology of three times the tube life and one third the heat output.
