The Obelisk Si mkIII builds upon the award winning MKII (Best stereo amp £1000-£1500, What Hi-Fi? Awards 2012). It refines and hones the endearing drive and qualities of this highly regarded integrated amplifier. During the years of evolution, the Obelisk Si showed us the nature of RC-coupled amplifiers. By the designing of the current version of this amp, the experts at Heed have found the solution that describes the magic it creates. Transcap technology is now the main path, which they pioneer and intend to follow, unaccompanied in the world.
The Obelisk Si MKIII is rated at a very healthy 50 watts per channel. However; do not be fooled by the kilowatt amps, this fifty is like a valve-amp fifty. And more, as a Transcap amplifier is rather different in this aspect. With this kind of power the Si is capable of astonishing dynamic authority and massive transients any time, and will drive some of the most demanding of speaker loads if required (you will be honestly surprised!).
What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision (UK) remarking on the Obelisk si said:
"This is one of the most musically accomplished integrated amps we've heard anywhere near this price. Play something like Mama by Black Eyed Peas and the Heed charges along, making the most of the intricate rhythms and dynamic thrust. This unit sounds robust and in charge even when pushed hard. And it's enthusiastic without ever becoming overbearing." "We like this amp a lot. Forget first impressions: this is a peach of a product."
