Warwick Acoustics officially launched their new flagship integrated headphone system – The APERIO, at the recent High-End Munich Show 2019 which took place last week.
The APERIO – which comes from the Latin, meaning to uncover, open, reveal, is a literal match for Warwick’s design goal: to reproduce and reveal all recorded audio content definitively, without alteration.
The APERIO has been designed with the most demanding professional audio creators and audiophiles in mind. It is a reference studio monitor headphone system for High-Resolution Audio recording, mixing mastering and production applications. With an integrated reference-performance DAC, analogue and network connectivity, the APERIO can also be used as a stand-alone full function pre-amp at the centre of ultra-high-end audiophile systems.
This new reference headphone system delivers the highest level of audio performance possible through the utilisation of the next generation of Warwick’s highly-refined, proprietary electrostatic transducer technology, the Balanced-Drive High Precision Electrostatic Laminate (BD-HPEL) transducer. This technology was originally developed by Warwick Acoustics for its first product, the ground-breaking and multi-award-winning Sonoma Model One headphone system.
The reaction from the press, trade and high-end enthusiasts during the show has been incredible, with many stating that it’s by far the best headphone experience they have ever had.
The APERIO will retail at GB£20,000 (US$24,000). Pre-orders are now being taken.
