Auris HA-2SE+: Balanced tube headphone amplifier from Serbia
The Serbian company Auris presented the anniversary model of the HA-2SE + headphone amplifier , built according to a balanced circuit. The novelty is dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the company. The preliminary amplification stage is implemented on the ECC81 double triode, and four Ei PL95 pentodes work on the output.
All lamps belong to the NOS (New Old Stock) class, and the manufacturer pays special attention to their selection. The switch on the back allows you to select the type of lamps used at the output – PL95 or EL95.
The Auris HA-2SE+ headphone amplifier is equipped with in-house hand-wound dual C-core output transformers to achieve a linear frequency response over the entire operating frequency range. The selector on the front panel allows you to select the nominal impedance of the headphones – 50, 150, 300 or 600 ohms. A glass partition on the top panel of the housing prevents accidental contact with the lamps.

To connect headphones on the front panel, both an unbalanced 6.3 mm jack connector and a balanced 4-pin XLR connector are provided.
