A legend amongst personal audio circles, our flagship Liquid Gold headphone amplifier serves as the definitive embodiment of our seemingly magical Cavalli house sound.
It is supremely transparent and detailed, tempered with an impeccable sense of balance and accuracy, extended infinitely at both ends, with a level of refinement and sophistication that belies it’s true power (9W into 50 Ohms).
And yet, Liquid Gold owners will readily confess that they’ve rarely heard music sound as natural or life-like, presenting us all with an uncanny realism that seems to stand in contradiction to the Liquid Gold’s unwavering precision and control.
That paradox - that ability to deliver every audiophile cliche there is all at once - that is the Cavalli magic that we can all hear, but never truly explain.
We invite you to hear for yourself. One audition is all it takes to become eternally spellbound, and to understand why hundreds of Liquid Golds are out in the world:
The Liquid Gold… our flagship, your end game, and a world-class reference in headphone amplification.
Judging by the sound it produces the Liquid Gold has been designed with a handful of sonic objectives in mind, including: dead-neutral tonal balance, low distortion, wide bandwidth, exceptional resolution, and terrific transient speed. Put these together and you get one of the most (if not the most) disarmingly honest and revealing headphone amplifiers I’ve yet heard. Put on a piece of music you think know well, and odds are that within seconds the Liquid Gold will have you asking yourself, “My word, where did all that additional musical information come from?”
The Liquid Gold is, quite simply, one of the most consistently excellent sounding amps I’ve heard, with just about every headphone I tried it with. Assuming you’re not using electrostats or IEMs, the Liquid Gold checks off far too many boxes to not be a contender. And actually trying it out, well, that seals the deal. I was stunned at how good my flagship headphones sounded on this amp. What else is there to say?
