Lukasz is The Lampizator and LampizatOr already has an enviable worldwide reputation gained by standing up for what he believes is the correct way to do Hi fi. His renowned and long running blog has gained a degree of notoriety in the world of audio, in no small part due to his often ruthless revelations about mainstream hi-fi products and their real value.

He has revealed reprehensible cost saving exercises by conventional manufacturers who, in their quests to increase profit margins, have killed the sonic properties of their products.

Lukasz has shared his findings with the world, but he has also run excellent tutorials for those with the courage to pick up their soldering irons and willing to expand their awareness and put into action his DIY audiophile improvements to run of the mill hi-fi products.

Lukasz is a legend amongst audiophiles and his innovative use of language to describe his procedures has become renowned to the point that a product that has undergone his treatment is said to have undergone “Lampization”.

Now Lukasz has matured, he has grown and he is now conceiving, designing and building hifi products that are not only highly competitive in the audiophile marketplace, but also have a little of the essence of the inspiration that is Lampizator and of course his hallmark sonic signature.Please have a look bellow to learn more about latest and current Generation 5 products range:

LampizatOr TranspOrt

The Lampizator Transport is  typical Fikus concept – take an existing product which is superb in concept but poorly executed and then breath new life into it.

With the Transport, the Squeezebox Duet is taken as the starting point (a superb idea and somewhat revolutionary in its conception) and it is transported way beyond what could be expected from such a humble unit. The Transport still uses the same software and has the same functionality as the Duet but it has undergone “Lampization” to deliver way beyond what could ever have originally been conceived. Also with its latest independently delivered software TranspOrt is capable to stream hassle less not only PCM but also DSD files. TranspOrt , despite his simple engine, sonically is successfully competing with any modern streamer you wish to bring to compare with. Forgot a humble computer itself.  Must be heard to believe. That’s how we are selling them.

* Old good Squeezebox Transport (SQBT) had been formally discontinued and you will not find it any more on LampizatOr pages , but it is possible to be ordered and we are still keeping this product in our range and supporting it because we didn’t find SINGLE PRODUCT of this kind on the market yet capable to compete with this unit, quality wise. And as you already  know the Quality and the best value for money is our benchmark.

Lampizator’s DSD komputer went through a lot of changes and after expected disappointment with MS environment which it had been using to operate it finally came to its final shape as a streaming device based on Linux . It is reliable , inexpensive and elegant solution which also makes it compatible with other software and apps on the market as well as with an SQBT, with which it can share the libraries without any conflict. The final specifications had just been updated on the manufacturer website so go there for all the details. Here we have few first pictures to show you how the latest DSD Komputer is looking like. Current unit is designed to match the range of BIG DACs like B5 and entire B7 family and of course the Golden Gate. Top panel of the unit is a subject to customer’s choice and will be made in the way to complete aesthetically an existing Lampizator DACs with wooden cheeks, full silver, black or Golden Gate’s painted copper finish.

Entry level DACs

LampizatOr AMBER DAC with DSD, PCM  and tube PSU and OUTPUT

The newest DAC from Lampizator – breaking the price barrier.

NEW in 2016 !!! AMBER mkII : 1800 Euro /net  for well equipped DAC. The price includes: Auto detect DSD & PCM up up to 128 x DSD, up to 385 kHz PCM. USB input plus RCA S/PDIF.

New dedicated Toroid transformer.Completely new, better digital engine by Lampizator (versus Sabre kit previously) Please check all options available on manufacturer AMBER mkII page linked.

LampizatOr EUPHORIA – DSD DAC only

DSD Euforia is exactly the same as Amber, except that Euforia is a DSD-ONLY DAC, without PCM at all. It shares chassis, PSU and analog section with the Amber but it has only DSD filter and USB input. The DSD is our own Fikus design while in the Amber it is an off the shelve Sabre dac chip. Euforia sound quality for DSD is better that Amber in absolute terms, but lack of PCM means that red-book files have to be converted on the fly by the computer. You can use JRiver or Foobar for this and forget about PCM forever. Both DACs are priced the same.

LampizatOr SILK AC filter

SILK filter lets the music be with full energy and dynamics but sounding more analog like, more clear, with better definition and tonal accuracy. The end result is so nice – that no one ever returned the SILK on loan. The filter sports full size box, so it can be nicely stacked with other gear. It is not a power strip wallowing in dust behind the rack. It is proudly participating with full membership rights as a vital rack element. Apart from filtering – the SILK nicely arranges our AC cables behind the rack. And now with the front switches added the phase can be corrected on the go with out any discomfort of re-switching your interconnects or speaker cables and messing behind the rack.

Please check all options available on manufacturer’s SILK AC filter website.
