JAVA Hi-Fi to debut world’s first LDR GaN FET integrated amplifier at
Following a successful 2016 Kickstarter campaign, Martin Bell along with JAVA Hi-Fi co-founders Shane Inder and Martin Young launched their debut product, the JAVA LDR pre-amplifier. The first production run quickly sold out, having made its way into the homes of audio enthusiasts everywhere from Germany to Japan. Since then, the JAVA team have developed two new offerings, a full-function integrated amplifier and an update to the LDR pre-amplifier.
JAVA’s refreshed V2.0 pre-amplifier utilises Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) technology to isolate the signal path from other control electronics, thus providing the delicate audio signal with the shortest, cleanest possible path from input to output.
Similarly, the brand’s new integrated-amplifier also uses an LDR pre-amp stage but combined with Gallium Nitride GaN FET Class D audio power modules to deliver unparalleled sound quality.
Featuring vanishingly low IMD (inter-modulation distortion) and THD (total harmonic distortion), the JAVA integrated amplifier is a world-first and a real game changer.
All JAVA models feature outer casework that has been CNC machined from a solid block of laminated birch plywood which is then overlaid with luxury real wood veneers. With a feature-set perfectly tailored to the demands of the discerning audio enthusiast, the JAVA Hi-Fi range is available in ‘Single Shot’ or ‘Double Shot’ strengths. The amplifiers feature a variety of input/output configurations, wood finishes and fascia colours, giving you a choice from over 50 customisable combinations.
Our aim is to bring music lovers closer to the music than ever before. The combination of LDR and GaN FET technology in the new JAVA
integrated amplifier is a match made in audio heaven.
We hope to catch up with JAVA at High End Munich where the full range of JAVA LDR pre-amplifiers and JAVA integrated amplifiers will be on demonstration on stand C21 in Halle 1.
