We use traditional, meticulous craftsmanship to bring out the best in specially selected high-quality natural solid wood as the headphones housing, with a unique texture specific to each unit.

I decided to swap out my Audio Tekne LT-8310 for the more substantial LT-4818 CD Line Transformer. It has a larger Super Permalloy Core Transformer. All I can say is “HOLY COW!!!” This transformed the Avia’s! Opening up the sound with incredible resolution & musicality! NATURAL! NATURAL! NATURAL! Hats off, come to think of it, shoes off too with my feet propped up listening to the wonderful Avia’s & giving many thanks to the legendary audio designer & builder Imai San.
I have my Aivas paired with my Hiby r5 DAP. Fabulous sound. The combo has done a great job with every type of music I have thrown at it. Detail is amazing. Short of my classic Stax electrostatics best treble I have heard. The bass is solid and well defined. Muds are coherent and well articulated. Off the chart bang for the buck. Thanks to Andrew once again for the great advice.
I’m excited to report, with the aid of my wideband powerline noise analyzer, that I’m able to show you the results of using an RFI EMI noise eliminator on the AC line powering my headphone setup. I initially plugged in the analyzer into an untreated outlet and got a numeric reading of over 100 hearing radio stations, voices, music & static thru the device’s audible speaker which, by the way, unfortunately plagues every home’s wiring. Then, without touching the sensitivity knob on the device, I plugged the analyzer into my power strip with the noise destroyer and...DEAD SILENCE! With a numeric reading showing 00.0! Please see pics below! That’s over a 100% percent reduction in noise on the AC line! So, If you’re still reading this and interested in achieving the best sound from your Avia Headphones or A/V system, lowering the noise floor is imperative! Dirty AC translates into a degradation of audio and video signals and that’s an electrical fact! I hope this test has been helpful to loyal MusicTeck customers. Well, I’m off again to listen to the wonderful Avia Headphones at their full potential. Lucky me!
I love ❤️ the “Avia” Headphones as you may have noticed from my previous review and I just wanted to breakdown the system I’m currently using with them. First off, the source is a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C CD Player, Audio Tekne LT-8310 Line Transformer and a Erzetich Audio “Bacillus Tilia” Headphone Amp. I’m running the system single ended (RCA analogue interconnects). The Noise Destroyer pictured below is plugged into my power strip its purpose being to lower the musics noise floor which it does very effectively! I point these specifics out because cables & tweaking do make a difference in sound quality. That’s why I got so enthused about the “Asur” upgraded cable and when I literally heard what it did, well...read my first review. i hope I don’t sound like a shill for Sendy Audio, I’m just an audiophile anxious to share my experiences with other music lovers and if I’ve inspired someone to experiment with their headphone rig then more power to you!
