HiFi Man Shangri La Junior Headphone and Amplifier Package
HIFIMAN Shangri-La Jr. Electrostatic Headphone and Tube-Driven Amplifier System Create Sonic Perfection at a Down-to-Earth Price. Amp and Headphone Combo Add Up to Sonics that Place the Listener in the Best Seat in the House.
HIFIMAN, the leader in high fidelity personal audio, have introduced a slimmed down version of its flagship Shangri-La electrostatic headphone and tube-driven amplifier system that maintains the predecessor’s wide, natural soundstage in a leaner and lighter package.
The appropriately named Shangri-La Jr. is cantered by four (4) 300B tubes that were custom-designed and custom-made in-house by HIFIMAN. The tube works as the direct driving stage, with neither capacitors nor transformers between the 300B tubes and the headphone.
“The Shangri-La is the ultimate representation of our personal audio design capabilities, with a price that reflects our no-holds-barred approach to the end result,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN. “But, we knew from the start that we should also create a version that is within reach of a larger group of music lovers who will appreciate the sonic benefits of electrostatic performance at real-world prices.”
The compact Shangri-La Jr. amplifier measures 400 x 265 x 108 mm (15.7" x 10.4" x 4.2") and weighs 24 lbs., making it easy to place on a desk, lamp table, nightstand, or wherever listeners prefer to enjoy music.
The matching electrostatic headphone represents the best of the technology, creating an almost massless sound source that is driven equally all at once. When used with the Shangri-La Jr. amplifier, the headphone’s sonics cover a frequency range of 7Hz-120kHz.
Though it includes large 97mm drivers, the headphone is a comfortable 374 grams (13.2 oz.), allowing for hours of listening without fatigue.
“The cumulative effect of experiencing well-recorded music over the Shangri-La Jr. system puts the listener in a 10th row center seat in an acoustically accurate concert hall,” said Dr. Bian. “Every element of the Shangri-La Jr.’s design is an integral ingredient in what we believe is the best personal listening system under $10,000.”
