About Cavalli Audio

 

Cavalli Audio began as Alex Cavalli’s interest in designing electronics was rekindled by a project with his (then) high-school aged son. This tube project turned into his first experimental headphone amps and his joining the online headphone community.

 

11 years later Alex has given the DIY headphone community a lot of good amps and good projects:

 

  • The Bijou all tube headphone amplifier

  • The Cavalli-Kan Kumisa III in collaboration with Ti Kan based on Benny Jorgensen’s Kumisa III amp.

  • The SOHA (Simple Opamp Headphone Amplifier)

  • The SOHA II (A better SOHA with better tube rolling and better sound)

  • The Compact Tube Hybrid (a very small, wall-wart powered, tube rollers dream)

  • The Embedded Hybrid Headphone Amplifier I (a DC coupled hybrid)

  • The EHHA Rev A (an improved EHHA I)

  • The Exstata Electrostatic Amplifier (a simple, easy stat amp for beginners)

  • As one thing has led to another, many DIY builders have encouraged Alex to offer some of his unreleased designs as commercial amps. After some thought, the very first Cavalli Audio offering, the Liquid Fire Headphone Amplifier was born. This amp was showcased at CanJam 2010 paired with the Audez-e LCD2 headphones. The response was very positive and after some months of putting together the production process, the Liquid Fire was made commercially available in March of 2011.

 

The future is about to be written…

Liquid Crimson

Liquid Crimson is a compact, hybrid headphone amplifier. It is the successor to the popular Liquid Fire priced to be affordable while still giving you the famous Cavalli sound.

 

The Liquid Crimson uses only a single tube in its embedded hybrid technology to give it our embedded hybrid sound. Something new for CA, the heatsinks are now the side panels too. With the cutouts in the front showing the heatsinks fins, the LC has an aggressive look about it while still retaining the refined CA package

 

Sound signature is in the CA family, with a clean lively sound. Plenty of power for the toughest planar headphones.

Liquid Glass production run 2 is in progress. There are only a few cosmetic changes to the top cover and re-arrangement of the input jacks, otherwise this is the Liquid Glass you've come to know and love.

 

Highlights:

 

  • Self-adjusts to the tube in use

  • The SS buffer is transparent to the sound of whatever tube you are using

  • Selectable for either 6.3V or 12.6V tubes

  • Selectable for B+ of 300V or 200V. 

  • Output selectable between headphones or preamp out

  • Input is selectable between two inputs. Input #2 has a loop out

  • Standard CA heater delay and offset protection.

 

Liquid Glass

 

Fully balanced front to back, differential solid state headphone amplifier. 

 

A brief note for those about to purchase the Liquid Gold. A customer has asked if the new production run uses poorer quality components to achieve the price point. The answer is no. The audio circuitry in all the versions of the LAu is the same. We have tried to reduce cost in other areas of manufacturing which allows us to pass these savings on to our customers.

 

Liquid Gold is a high powered fully balanced amplifier. Each channel is a true differential amplifier with its own independent rail regulators. Yet, the LAu is in a small, single chassis package in the new, stealth black Cavalli Audio look. 

 

Please note that we are changing the line/mains selections to 100V/115V/230V to simplify the selections and better support the global community of Liquid Gold owners and prospective owners.
