AURALiC GEMINI Headphone Dock

AURALiC has just joined the headphone fever with Sweden’s Klutz Design to produce their new Gemini 2000 and 1000 headphone docks.  The Gemini 2000 and 1000 are a combination of style, functionality and performance that integrates a headphone rack station, with a headphone amplifier within a designer aesthetic.  The Gemini headphone docks are equipped with a Class A headphone amplifier with maximum output power capabilities that relate to the model names i.e. the Gemini 2000 can output up to 2000 mW (or 2 Watts), while the Gemini 1000 is capped at 1 Watt output.

Named after the constellation Gemini, the two headphone docks include a full-format Digital Audio Converter (DAC), a Class-A headphone amplifier, an integrated SD Extended Capacity (SDXC) card reader holding up to 2 terabytes and provides both headphone as well as cord storage.  The base of the Gemini is milled from brass and houses balanced (4-pin) and single-ended (quarter inch) headphone connectors, USB, SDXC card slot, phone jack input, volume control, input selector, power on/off and power socket. The base also displays volume and sample rate.
