The Elixir is the essence of how Heed think about music reproduction. This integrated amplifier puts down four important cornerstones that provide a playground for the listener. A preamplifier with its dedicated output, a power amplifier with plenty of juice to drive anything reasonable, a phono preamplifier to re-discover those black discs, and a headphone amplifier with way too much talent for a secondary function only. But Heed have built them into one box because these are the basic functions everyone should experience in “My First Hi-Fi System”. As it happens, it is well enough for the second and the third as well…

The Elixir has a neat place amongst Heed's Transcap technology amplifiers. It is the purest music performer of all, without any technical compromise and presents the music effortlessly. Besides the power amplifier, the headphone stage also benefits from the basic idea of the Transcap technology. Class-A, darlington-driven, capacitor-coupled outputs feed your headphones like nothing else you have experienced before.

The MM phono stage is based on Heed's acclaimed Questar’s circuit. As the standalone amp, this integrated incarnation is thick and warm and provides a great overall amplification for nearly all kind of MM cartridges. It’s a very easy way to find your way back into the analogue domain, and be a lifetime captive of the black vinyl.
