Sonoma Model One Electrostatic Headphone System

The Sonoma Model One Electrostatic Headphone System is available for demonstration in our Hull store.

The Sonoma Model One Electrostatic Headphone System is the world's first headphone system to use the High-Precisions Electrostatic Laminate (HPEL) audio transducer developed by Warwick Audio Technologies Ltd.

This patented technology offers very low moving mass for extended high frequency response (over 60 kHz) and unmatched transient response, uniform drive over the entire panel to minimize break-up modes, and light weight for improved comfort.

The simplicity of the HPEL's design ensures exceptional durability and reliability as it is produces with modern automated manufacturing techniques to ensure unprecedented consistency and matching between transducers.

Like all electrostatics, the Sonoma Model One Electrostatic Headphone System requires a high-voltage amplifier in order to function. The Sonoma Model One Electrostatic Headphone System is supplied with a high-performance, discrete Class-A amplifier.

The amplifier is encased in a aluminum chassis, and provides USB and coax S/PDIF digital as well as RCA analog inputs. The USB input accepts Hi-Res Audio formats up to 32-bit/384 kHz PCM and DSD via DoP (DSD64 and DSD128), while the S/PDIF input accepts all PCM formats up to 24-bit/192 kHz.

Sonoma Acoustics At Fanthorpes

Sonoma Acoustics were formed by a group of ex-Sony and Philips employees who helped develop the Super Audio CD format. The name Sonoma comes from the DSD recording and editing workstation that they helped to develop in the early days of the SACD. In short, the people behind Sonoma are the ones who helped to pioneer high-resolution audio. The end result is the Sonoma Model One electrostatic headphone system.
