Pyon Sound Iris One SE Phonostage


- A pair of step-up transformers is installed within and integrated with the circuit.
- One MM input is replaced with one MC input for low-output MC cartridges
- This will enable owners to use low-output MC cartridges without a head preamp or an external MC step-up transformer.
- The MC step-up transformers are the custom-ordered model from Haufe-Siemens in Germany. (Haufe-Siemens also supplies MC transformers to the mega-expensive Japanese Shindo)

Stahl-Tek Vekian transport

The Transport Unit uses 2 types of vibration and shock control systems. These systems include constraint layer dampening for vibration and specially shaped energy absorbing mounts for shock. This includes the equipment foot plate system have been specially designed to transfer energy more efficiently.

The CD drive uses several types of techniques to enhance the CD servo and laser mechanisms, which are proprietary.

The components are constructed to the strictest of tolerances utilizing CNC machines, then hand assembled by highly skilled in-house technicians.

The Transport uses a massive power supply to provide stable power for all the internal electronics.

The transport uses an extremely accurate master clock that utilizes special synchronization circuitry for the transport and the Stahl~Tek Vekian D/A via the I2S interface.

The output includes I2S Output via the HDMI connector, the Balanced mode AES/EBU, the SPDIF via the RCA and BNC connectors. The Transport has 2 times and 4 times up-sampling capability on the I2S output.

Also included is a simple in design and functional remote control that is housed in a precisely machined aluminum body

Human Audio Libretto cd-player


After a lengthy development, a system was built which is free from the umpteen harmonics that are incoherent distortion waves (your ear is very sensitive to these) - so we were able to produce essentially different quality sound than CD technology could at the time. In the Libretto separate batteries were given to the digital and analog circuits. Not even DC/DC converter, which is also cause interference. The battery monitor and charger are fully automatic, they do not need to be given special care by the user.

Philips Pro2 Industrial mount directly connected rigidly onto Libra. There are no springs, rubber, uncertain suspension: all of the vibrations are redirected through the special lenses. The bamboo box functions as a truss.
This is followed by a unique hybrid solution DAC with a very sophisticated analog circuitry. The specialized Jensen transformers from the U.S. transfer an output of 0.05 Hz to 10 MHz! The driver stage of the transformers do not contain any negative feedback.
Analog outputs are professional-standard 600 ohm XLR and RCA connectors. Optional coaxial S/PDIF digital output or symmetric AES/EBU can be chosen upon order.
The housing can come in a variety of plywood or bamboo.
