Elysia announce xpector headphone amp

Compact device boasts flexible mixing & routing options

Elysia xpector Class-A compact headphone amp zero-latency monitoring

Elysia’s qube Standalone Series offers a compact, lightweight way to incorporate some analogue processors into a setup by housing a pair of 500-series modules (or one double-width module) in a neat two-slot chassis. It’s already possible to specify systems fitted with the company’s selection of compressors, EQs, saturation units and so on, but the latest addition to the range offers something a little different. 

Elysia xpector Class-A compact headphone amp zero-latency monitoringThe unit is housed in a custom qube chassis with a wealth of rear-panel I/O connections.Set for release in August 2024, the xpector packs in a pair of high-quality Class-A headphone amplifiers with two stereo input sources and a selection of handy routing and EQ functions, all housed in a purpose-built qube chassis. The front panel is divided into Engineer and Artist sections each equipped with a level control for the two stereo inputs (Direct and DAW) and an output level control, and the Artist section also benefits from a two-band shelf EQ. The Engineer side offers a range of listening modes (stereo, mid, sides, left and right) along with a ±12dB trim dial.

Headphone outputs are provided on both the front and rear panels, and both the DAW and Direct signals are passed on to outputs that can be used to route them to other equipment. Two balanced XLR outputs then allow the mix from the Engineer section to be passed on to a pair of speakers. 

It's worth noting the amount of I/O xpector offers means that, unlike the company's range of 500-series modules, it will be available exclusively in the qube format, and will not be compatible with other 500-series host racks. 

Pricing & Availability

The xpector will be available in August 2024, priced at €1099.
