Meridian's Déjà Vu
Although I basically left headphone amplifiers to Tyll Hertsens, whose CES coverage appears on InnerFidelity.com, I must mention the Meridian Prime headphone amplifier ($2000), because it can also function as a full 2-channel preamplifier. The baby includes a fully asynchronous USB DAC that can handle 24/192, and has a wallwart power supply that can be replaced by the Prime Power Supply ($1295), a separate power supply that can power up to five Meridian devices. Both are pictured on the right in the photo.
