Built on the premise that the way most of us experience music today is lacking a certain “in the room” feeling, the Billie Amp—named after jazz icon Billie Holiday—from Heaven 11 Audio combines the analog warmth of an old school tube amp with the digital precision of modern technology. Underneath the seriously svelte hood you’ll find a Bang & Olufsen Class D Icepower amp with 250W of power, matched JJECC99 Tubes (technically, these stick out the top) a hi-res ESS Sabre DAC and inputs for all your devices (including a dedicated one for turntables and aptX Bluetooth). Each amp is built with components from suppliers within 50 miles of Montreal and will be backed by a 5 year warranty. The only real issue with the hybrid Billie Amp is that it’s going to make the rest of your living room look bad.
