Encased in solid built construction, to a quality you would expect. Each front fascia is CNC milled for a high level of precision typically associated with finely crafted watches. It’s 10mm thick fascia is hand-finished in flawless chrome and is matched by it’s clutter-free interface. Four gold or chrome finished controls dial in the experience.
Engineered on the same core technologies as the studio grade brother, the EAR 912. The EAR 868’s smaller size may mean there's less of it but that's not the case here. It’s still big on performance with circuitry designed by Tim de Paravicini. The 868 utilizes the same reliable PCC88s in a configuration of four.
The carefully built circuit boards enable performance that is low in distortion, low in noise but full of sound. Leaving reliable service that is suitable for high end professional tasks.
