Description

Pyxis II

Delivering state-of-the-art sound, the Pyxis II Preamplifier is the heart of the Leema Constellation Series, designed to offer absolute transparency with superior resolution and musicality.

Features include both single-ended and balanced analogue inputs and outputs, tone controls, USB digital connectivity for use with computers, on-board 24 bit 96 kHz DAC for digital sources, high performance headphone amplifier and an optional built-in, high quality MM/MC phono-stage.

Pyxis analogue signal path is fully balanced throughout. In many ways it is actually two complete preamplifiers – one for each signal phase.

Pyxis also features Leema Acoustics proprietary LIPS® control interface. LIPS® type 1 & 2 are both included, allowing Pyxis to integrate with home automation systems and other Leema components.

Using LIPS® it is possible to feed any Leema power amplifier with a constant high-level audio signal and control the volume at the input stage of the power amplifier. This is achieved by using fly-by-wire control data from Pyxis, ensuring maximum signal-to-noise ratio and resolution of the audio signal, by running the audio interconnect cables at an unattenuated high-level.

Brand

Leema Acoustics

Founded in 1998, Leema Acoustics was originally a means of further exploring the fanatical interest in audio reproduction of its two founders, ex-BBC engineers Lee Taylor and Mallory Nicholls.

Following the success of their first project (the Xen micro-monitor, sold to pro-audio customers only), the founders decided to turn their expertise to audio electronics, and their first domestic product, (the Tucana integrated amplifier) subsequently won the distinguished Hi-Fi News amplifier of the year award. Since then, the Leema Acoustics portfolio of class-leading products has expanded to include the Constellation, Stellar, Elements and Essentials series. Their products continue to attract international acclaim, including many "best in class" reviews and numerous eminent awards.
