Following the tradition of Elemental Amps , Sherlock is designed for a no-compromise performance at a

very affordable price. During the design process, we took further steps to make Sherlock modular and

expandable, from a stereo amp to a fully balanced amplifier. We are pleased that we succeeded in

producing the Sherlock with unprecedented driving capability and musicality at a very cost-effective price

point.

To arrive at our goal, we trimmed all unnecessary features and cosmetics. We then focused on Sherlock’s

core competence - the amplification. The kernel of Sherlock is a class-A tube gain stage that dominates

the sound quality with the tubes unique signature. This is followed by a single-ended class-A MOSFET

power stage to provide plenty of current for demanding headphones.

Sherlock’s uniqueness is the added bridged circuits ahead of the main amp. These circuits when

activated, converts input signals into balanced (positive plus negative polarities) format and feeds to left

and right channels. This special design feature turns a tandem pair of Sherlock into a truly stereo

balanced amplifier.

Sherlock is the first bridgeable headphone amplifier and audiophiles can enjoy the single chassis first and

subsequently upgrade to double chassis for balanced performance. The audiophile with their numerous

headphone collection will find the Sherlock a timeless investment.
