Lake People G105 Mk II

LakePeople G105 Mk II front

Lake People has been working for decades on perfecting its products according to the slogan "Tools, not Toys". The new headphone amplifier G105 Mk II is the result of these optimisation efforts and convinces with improved specifications and serveral practical extensions.

Lake People manages to push the already impressive specifications of the G105 even further. The G105 Mk II now drives the headphones of choice with an impressive output of up to 2,300 milliwatts. Crosstalk attenuation and signal-to-noise ratio have also been further refined by the engineers at the Lake Constance based manufacture to ensure a clear, unaltered sound image. With such outstanding qualities, this professional excels in its performance, suiting even the most demanding mastering applications.

Headphones vary not only in driver configuration and can design, but also in their impedance. Lake People knows how to overcome this particular challenge. With five switchable pre-gain levels of -6, 0, +6, +12 and +18 decibels, the new G105 Mk II drives every headphone at its optimum and allows for a comfortable amount of travel of the volume pot. High output voltage perfectly feeds high-impedance headphones, while the ample amount of output power gets the best out of low-impedance headphones and even magnetostatic models. The Lake People G105 Mk II amplifies any model perfectly.

Lake People G105 Mk II connects to unbalanced or balanced sources via RCA or XLR inputs, with the source being selectable via a switch. The innovative split circuit distributes the stereo input channels to each of the two headphone outputs in mono, allowing for two musicians to be addressed with different mono monitor mixes. The balance pot adjusts the volume difference between the two headphone outputs. The G105 Mk II also features a toggle switch that sets the input signal to mono or reverses the phase of one of the stereo channels. This feature set makes the G105 Mk II a high-quality and versatile monitoring tool for recording and mixing situations.
