How does it work?
The Viva Egoista 845 is considered by many as the ultimate ultra headphone amp. The amplifier is built by hand, is entirely point-to-point wired, meaning that no circuit board is used in the design. The tubes are two Shuguang 845 tubes, a single Russian-made 6N1P, and a single Tung-Sol 6SN7 driving the huge 845 triodes and Two 5U4GBEH Electro Harmonic’s rectifiers are used for the all tube rectification.
The Viva Egoista 845 is truly an eye and ear opener. It recreates the true tonality of instruments and is a true Italian hand-crafted single ended triode amplifier with amorphous transformers, outputting 15 Watts per channel. The Viva Egoista 845 surrounds you with delicacy during female voices and provides a magical sensation of space. The midrange is very natural, it’s overal sound super realistic. The purity of the sound is a true adventure. This amplifier can drive any headphone. Sound staging, transparency, bass. This amp does everything right.
