"Some audio products, created by designers who understand and implement the key elements required to make music sing, are tuned finely enough to be able to let the music speak. The Heed Elixir is such a product: a versatile integrated amplifier whose strengths include musical momentum, a touchable and delicious midrange, first-row re-creation of voices, and a very large soundstage."
An all-in-one analogue amp that makes no sonic compromises.
It won't be a shock to anyone already familiar with Heed's phenomenal line of integrated amplifiers and DACs to hear that the new Elixir Integrated Amplifier packs in an immense amount of value for its price while making absolutely no compromises when it comes to sound quality. Much like their renowned Obelisk Integrated Amplifier, the Elixir has a thick tonality with a gorgeous midrange and excellent attention to detail, but comes in with more power than the Obelisk at 50W per channel at 8ohm. The Elixir also packs in more features than the Obelisk, with an included moving magnet phono stage and an incredible headphone amplifier as well as 4 additional analogue inputs for your other components. The included remote control makes using this sleek little amplifier a breeze. For a company that already makes some of the best integrated amplifiers in the world at this price point, Heed continues to dominate this category with their brand new Elixir Integrated Amplifier.
