Pico Slim Portable Amp: A Preview
May 5, 2009

A release of a new portable amp, the Pico Slim, is planned for late summer.  What will the Pico Slim offer?

- Thinner than an iPod Classic or iPhone (about 0.4" thin).
- 1.75" wide front panel with 3.5mm input & output, volume knob, and illuminated power switch; 3" length.
- Up to 4.2V/250mA output per channel
- 40 to 50 hour battery life (Lithium Polymer).
- Charging by USB or DC Adapter.
The above specifications are subject to change.

But most importantly the Pico Slim is different.  The heart of the Pico Slim is a feature not found on any other portable amp.  With the growing popularity of IEMs that have extreme sensitivity, portable amps have enough power but fall short in other areas.  The Pico Slim will solve these problems and still be a fraction of the size of other portable amps.  That's why the Pico Slim will make the most sense as the amplifier in your portable rig.

A few months ago, an early prototype was sent to a Head-Fi member for evaluation.  Here are his thoughts.  Parts of these impressions have been removed to hide details of the Pico Slim's design.

"I believe that [the Pico Slim] is the perfect solution for IEMs. It's the no holds barred approach to dealing with providing an amp for IEMs. The degree to which you can ___________ is insane. [The Pico Slim] is a design tailored specifically to address the issues with current tech portable amps, namely the fact that it is impossible to ____________. So [HeadAmp] dealt with this in a way that as far as I know has never been done in any headphone amp, portable or otherwise. So you custom IEM freaks might want to be on the lookout, you ain't seen nothing like it."

For now, we're keeping the feature that sets the Pico Slim apart under wraps.  More info will be revealed this month at CanJam 2009 - be sure to bring your IEMs and full-size headphones too!
