    Leema Acoustic Pyxis 2

    Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

    The Pyxis pre-amplifier is the heart of Leema’s Reference Series, designed to offer absolute transparency with superior resolution and musicality. The Pyxis is without a doubt a state-of-the-art performer. A generous range of features ensures that the Pyxis offers complete satisfaction.

    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, a high quality MM / MC phono stage.

    Pyxis’ analogue signal path is fully balanced throughout. In many ways, it is actually two complete pre-amplifiers – one for each signal phase.

    Pyxis features Leema’s 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 the Pyxis which ensures maximum signal-to-noise ratio and resolution of the audio signal, by running the audio interconnect cables at an unattenuated high-level.
