About
Audiopax
The founder of Audiopax, Eduardo de Lima, began in audio in his teens with the production of his first loudspeakers and amplifiers, something that led him a few years later to design his first SET amplifier using a 300B tube. This achievement was, according to him, the main event of his career - the musicality and naturalness of that strange little amp exceeded all expectations, inspite of some limitations in the high and slow and poorly controlled bass (characteristics normally found in average 300B amplifiers) the midrange frequency band was simply magical. So, Eduardo de Lima spent the following years trying to explain and, mainly, control the elements that produce that magic, to achieve it without the limitations imposed by a single device.

AudioPax Model 5 (Gen 4) Preamplifier

Audiopax preamplifiers redefine the role of these components in an audio system, materialising in a direct and controllable way the concept of “synergy” between its components. They are the only preamplifiers in the world to include the Timbre Lock® technology, allowing the you to set the minimal perceived distortion in a system as a whole and whilst listening, thus escaping from the conventional concept of measurement in individual components. Thus its inclusion in systems is often described as “magic”, revealing all the nuances, dynamics, intentions and emotions of the music and musicians, something usually only found in live performances.

 

Other features and innovations also contribute to the maximum performance of systems in which they are inserted: the absolute lack of feedback, an unprecedented and a unique MOSFET topology, where the component characteristics are effectively used to work very close to the valves (many customers consider the inclusion of Audiopax preamplifier as a “tube element” into their systems) and an innovative use of inductive loads (unlike conventional resistive loads), where the final dynamic perceived is raised to the levels difficult to achieve by any other preamplifier on the market. No wonder that the Model 5 accumulates an impressive number of excellent reviews, awards and “Best of the Show” in the world’s top audio shows.

Extended frequency response, exceptional low level resolution, dynamic and visceral tremendous immunity to load variations. Refinement and innovation raise our preamplifiers to the reference category.
