Ideal for the Imperfect System
And by “imperfect system,” we mean “every system on the face of the planet.” Admit it. Are your speakers perfect? Are your headphones perfect? Are your recordings perfect? If you’re honest, the answer is “no.” Some speakers and headphones are a bit bright or a bit dark. Some recordings aren’t paragons of tonal purity. Loki lets you adjust for these imperfections.
Tune to Your Desires
Let’s face it. Not everyone wants a bright, analytical system. Not everyone wants crazy pounding bass. We’re all individuals, and we all have preferences. With Loki, you can go beyond tuning out imperfections—you can tune the system to the way you want it to sound.
Not Your Father’s EQ
Best of all, Loki allows you this level of control, while retaining transparency. Instead of a stack of noisy op-amps attached to open-frame, dust-collecting sliders (like EQs you may have used in the past), Loki uses a single, discrete, current-feedback gain stage, coupled to passive LC filters for 3 bands, plus a gyrator for the bass. It also uses sealed Alps potentiometers with rational adjustment ranges to allow for fine control. Coupled with a 100% passive bypass setting, Loki offers the transparency and flexibility you need.
Designed and Built in California
By “designed and built in California” this is what we mean: the vast majority of the total production cost of Loki—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our chassis are made minutes from our facility. Our PCBs are done just over the hill from us, or done in NorCal. Yes, the wall-warts are made in China, but there’s some give and take at this price point.
2-Year Warranty and 15-Day Return Policy
Loki is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labor for two years. That’s 2x the coverage of most amps in this price range. And, if you don’t like your Loki, you can still send it back for a refund, minus 15% restocking fee, within 15 days of receiving your amp.
