APHEX AT MUSIKMESSE 2012
Legendary audio brand unveils new products at Frankfurt show

Burbank, California—February 29, 2012—Aphex, the legendary leader in sound enhancement and amp technology, is rolling out two new products at Musikmesse in March 2012.  Staying true to the company’s ethos, “Making Your World Sound Better,” Aphex proudly introduces the EX•BB 500™ & HeadPod4™ to their mix of patented and proven tone-shaping and preamp audio products.

EX.BB 500™: As one of the early innovators of ‘500’ style components, Aphex helped initiate the standards for this style of configuration that has revolutionized professional audio. In 2012, Aphex is at it again, launching a complete line of ‘500’ products, beginning with a 500 Series version of the legendary Aphex Exciter.

Aphex engineers have designed the EX•BB 500 to provide the exact same performance audio professionals have come to expect from the much-celebrated Aphex Aural Exciter® – improved detail and clarity in the higher frequencies while providing more spaciousness in the overall mix.

Adding the sonic depth of the proven Big Bottom®, with its dynamic low frequency punch, improved detail and the much-exalted ‘thickness’, this compact 500 Series product delivers all of the critical performance demanded, while fitting racks from API, Radial, A Designs, Empirical Labs and

Tonelux. Providing engineers and artists with unlimited flexibility to add and subtract Exciter channels as needed, this powerful and portable 500 module brings even more Aphex impact to studios and stages.

HeadPod4: In pre-launch tests, touring musicians and engineers have deemed the HeadPod4 the most potent and dynamic sounding headphone amplifier available in such a compact package. It’s a known fact that hearing better means improved performance and recordings. Unlike conventional headphone amps, Headpod4 has plenty of headroom to drive any and all brands of professional headphones with dynamic range. HeadPod4 is extremely simple to operate with four individual volume controls for each channel’s discrete and powerful Aphex amplifier. This means that each person can use their favorite headphones completely independent of the other channels. And, just as important, without having to worry about diminishing the sound quality because of mismatched headphone loads that typically pull down headphone amps employing just one amplifier for all channels. HeadPod4 provides both digital and analog inputs and the highest quality analog to digital conversion and sound monitoring available today. Until now, this has always been the weakest part of the audio conversion process. Another critical feature: there’s no unplugging and re-plugging as the HeadPod4 allows users to leave all the inputs right in place and dial in exactly what each one needs.

“Everyone at Aphex is really excited about the direction the company is headed and about these new products,” says Aphex CEO, David Wiener.  “Over the past year, we’ve devoted so much time, energy, and research to further elevating our products.  I’m so proud of our team and believe our hard work is paying off.”
