Cypher Labs AlgoRhythm Picollo Portable Amplifier

Cypher Labs

The design is unique in that it uses 10 pairs of triodes to perform the amplification, without the use of op amps. Very quiet background suitable for IEM's, but also very powerful for even large headphones. The improvement in audio, even from a headphone jack, is amazing.

  • The advantage of discrete component:
    1. no unnecessary components with minimal interference
    2. better quality components, more power
    3. high resolution sound

    The disadvantage of discrete component:
    1. more space and more power-consuming
    2. hard to design portable circuit
    3. triodes must be precise matched: output triodes are hand selected
    4. each amp must be hand-tuned, very time and labour consuming 

    • Very large output spread supports ultra sensative IEM's and large headphones
    • low gain -12db, mid gain, high gain +11.5db
