EternalArts - latest news!

For the anniversary, STEREO has now also tested the OTL MkIII. The EternalArts had already shone in the laboratory with decent values ​​such as ample bandwidth, high signal-to-noise ratio and, last but not least, with an absolutely acceptable and, above all, very even distortion behavior across the performance range, it confirmed the raison d'être of its exotic concept in the listening room, in view of which we listened all the more closely: What was revealed to us there was cause for rapture...Read more about it in STEREO 3/2023.



15 years EternalArts

Once the children have turned 15, the producers have the worst behind them: There is a creature with its own contours, inside and out. During this time we raised the 'EternalArts' brand in Hanover's Isernhagen, which was intended to add a special sound to the densely populated hi-fi world.

The overture in 2008 introduced the theme, which has been varied over the years into a finely graded range of products, starting with the OTL tube amplifier based on Julius Futterman's transformerless amplification principle. We have thought through the idea of ​​the New York engineering genius who died in 1981, remedied its component-related weaknesses, but preserved the characteristic slender physicality of the musical sound. Our OTL eschew bloated sound and stick staunchly to the original event in the recording studio. Wanting to purely depict the unvarnished naturalness of the instrumental and vocal events is less a matter of course in the industry than one might think. Some may enjoy the Botox lining of amplifiers with tubes, but those who deny the effect are purists.


The special version of the OTL MkIII was ready just in time for the anniversary - of course with the circuit design that has not changed for 15 years. Our compact audiophile preamplifier module HLP, created from the development philosophy of our headphone amplifier, which is well respected everywhere, was expanded in time for the anniversary with a remarkably powerful phono section for MM and MC.


In our opinion, which is shared by more and more audiophiles, the venerable, long-dead reel-to-reel tape recorder as the mother of all modern high fidelity actually has the highest fidelity. That's why we offer those who, apart from digital magic, swear by the rock-solid qualities of a Studer, Revox, Ferrograph, Nagra or Otari, an extensive series of lovingly restored top models.


For the recording operation of tape machines without integrated level control (i.e. the normal studio device), which are increasingly being offered today after being phased out in radio stations and recording studios, we developed the neat Universal Tape Stage and placed it in a posh niche together with accessories in the form of fabulous master tape copies. The machines leave our laboratory in perfect condition, not only to radiate the fascination of the windmill-like rotating large coils, but also to be able to produce studio-ready recordings immediately.


In addition to the EternalArts devices, which are exclusively based on tube technology, the company loves the timeless classics. With the know-how of our own productions, we devote ourselves to the restoration and trade in selected treasures from HiFi history, of course refurbished - our hobby sport, so to speak. We are just as happy to take classics to the workshop to maintain their technical and visual condition, because otherwise they would not remain what the name High Fidelity promises.

EternalArts goes digital ...

With the new DP DAC MkIIwith tube output stage, EternalArts is introducing the first component that is both a CD player and a digital analogue converter. After conversion by a Burr Brown PCM 1796, the CD player with a pure audio drive transmits its analog signal to the sonically superior tube output stage, which is also found in the high-end digital player DP, the high-end satellite tuner and the universal tape stage Performed service. The integrated DAC accepts external digital signals from the computer via USB, coaxially via cinch or optically via Toslink, but converts them with a Wolfson WM8805 before sending them to the cinch output via the tube output stage.

Order via us
EUR 480,00  (incl. VAT)

An unique opportunity for all fans of analogue master-tape copies.


At the time of his artistic life, Pavarotti requested a personal tape recording of his performances that were then handed over to him after each concert. These tapes were donated by his widow to the trustworthy Pavarotti Foundation. They were all archived but deteriorated over time due to age. In order to preserve the collection, they reached out to a competent partner and found such in the name of Hemiolia records. They recommended, fully understanding the value of these recordings, that they were made available to a small circle of audiophiles. They were awarded the marketing rights.

Sonically these recordings are a pure delight - a must have for everybody who enjoys Pavarotti and who already appreciates the outstanding quality of a master-tape copy.

To a certain extent, in addition to the development and production of the EternalArts HiFi components, we had the idea more than a year ago to create a classical musical instrument exclusively based on tonal properties. The Stutz grand piano EternalArts Grand Piano168 was born. The professional pianist and professor Paola Antoniacomi was so enthusiastic about its tonal properties that she came to record it. A master tape with pieces by Bach, Mozart, Schumann, Debussy, Schubert, Chopin, Scarlatti and Cesar Franck was created using the Nagra IV-S and Neumann microphones. Now a YouTube video introduces the EternalArts grand piano and high-end components.....

AUDIOphile reviewed EternalArts OTL-Mono Blocs

"The Super-Mono-Amps - a dream thanks to the output transformerless principle!" This is the opinion of the author Andreas Günther in the new magazine AUDIOphile 1/2012  issued these days, describing his experiences of the big EternalArts amps together with the EternalArts Dipole loudspeaker. "As brutally and honestly as possible we would have to say: For a journalist it comes close to torture - since these power amplifiers elude any fault-finding or restriction. The Eternal Arts monos are free from weeknesses, unassailable - no lime leaf on the back." And more: "Besides all their benefits the OTL monos are superb modellers, too - the room is not anatomised , this is not a relief, but a true, three-dimensional sculpture. In spite of the political nature of the subject: Who has ever experienced this art of sound, will never again yearn for music in multichannel."

EternalArts to win stereoplay readers'  election

As in the years before, the hifi magzines stereoplay and AUDIO invited all readers to elect the sets of the past year in November/December 2011. 25.000 readers took part in the election. In stereoplay Eternal Arts' headphone amp KHV 'basic line' achieved the second place in the final ranking.

In AUDIO the Eternal Arts Dipol competed within a field of almost 30 top-notch speakers. Due to its unique features the Dipol rose above most of the competitors despite their popularity and their manufacturer's boosted marketing budgets. A remarkable 5th place was the result.         

STEREO is testing the new "basic line"

In issue 2 /2012, the well-known hi-fi magazine shows once more the lively interest in high-quality headphones and headphone amplifiers and introduces with the KHV "basic line" and the Lehmann Linear SE, two high-class technologically independent experts. In the rehearsal with the Sennheiser HD800, which acted as unerring work device, the EternalArts convincingly demonstrated its musical qualities. That the transistorized rival "as fervently played music, not restored the room smaller," then surprised the tester, which led to ascribe the latter one more point. This surprised us as well!

KHV "basic line" in a first comparison test at stereoplay!

We almost could not believe it - there had to pass four whole years until stereoplay, the magazine for "the technical dimension of HiFi," an EternalArts component underwent a test. The editorial hijacked four candidates of the top class from Germany to a comparison in laboratory and listening room, and came with all due fairness to the conclusion that although there are much less expensive competitors,  none of its colleagues from the semiconductor group in particular with the Sennheiser HD800 could make such a captivating performance.

EternalArts offers two further headphone amplifiers
of the absolute top class

No matter who called it out - the EternalArts OTL-headphone amplifier KHV presented a year ago gained the reputation as the best-sounding headphone amplifier in the market. Its construction and its quality materials, however, had a high price. With the aim to create far more cost-effective yet high quality, EternalArts now presented the KHV "basic line" and KHV "professional".

High praise for OTL headphone amplifier by hifi & records in 3 / 2011

"In comparison to all transistor concepts it is far ahead in terms of colour, size and flow of the music. And it beats the tube competition with its immense precision and rock-solid grip even in the lowest octaves," wrote Stefan Gawlick in the just-published magzine. We are excited about it.

HiFi STARS examines the KHV of EternalArts

"The new KHV by EternalArts - especially in the perfectly matching duo with the Sennheiser HD800 - is a thoroughly convincing case for the head-listening!... this headphone amplifier just does everything right, he will captivate you with its enormous homogenity."

 KHV "Reference" with AUDIO also

AUDIO has also tested the EternalArts OTL-headphone amplifier now. It moved with 110 points in the reference class: "But those who hear classical music and have an HD800, will hardly find a headphone amplifier that reproduces music with such a blaze of color and detail." More in issue 5 / 2011.

EternalArts KHV "Top- reference" with STEREO

"The sound of the KHV has proven its special status: While most competitors present explicit strengths in one area or another, the KHV fascinated with a homogeneity in all the properties, that none of the other candidates had known how to counter. It was the at first completely seemingly unspectacular replay, which was found with increasing residence time under the headphones as a refreshing change to the rest of the tests." In the test of headphone amplifiers in Issue 4 / 2011 STEREO let ten top-notch representatives of this species to compete against one another, in which the EternalArts KHV among the purely analogue devices enjoyed most.

Image hifi discovers EternalArts amplifier

With the encouraging message of greeting to dynamic head-phones - ", listen up: Here comes the best thing that can happen to you right now!" - Cai Brockmann directs a report on his experience EternalArts OTL-headphone amplifier KHV. Rarely has a candidate spent so long in an editorial office, until it's impressions were put to paper. Behind the scenes it was said that the author was seen so often with "sound caps" on duty and in private like never before. How Orpheus, the singer from the Greek mythology, got a new address, please read in the March / April issue on page 110th

AUDIO places EternalArts Dipole after review in the reference class.

“Three Dipoles – three principles”. In the February 2011 issue, the fantastic Apogee Scintilla Mark IV, the great Hybrid Electrostatic from Martin Logan and the noticeable, inconspicuous EternalArts Dipole were compared along with comprehendible basic technical information. Malte Ruhnke states on the latter loudspeaker: “The bass reach did not have any audible limit. Every bass note was expressed with such a perfect accuracy that I was speechless” Read the article to find out more.

hifi & records presents the EternalArts Dipole

hifi & records informs in their special loudspeaker issue extensively on the different loudspeaker types and explores the dipole principles. The same “amazingly light behaviour” that earned the large idol, Ecouton TransAir its pole position, is attributed to the EternalArts dipole. Wilfried Kress writes “It’s with transparency, ease, airiness that the loudspeaker produces such music in its stride”.

LP reviews the Headphone amplifier KHV

“A match made in heaven’, is the title of the Review in the 6/2010 issue of the LP magazine that tested the OTL headphone amplifier. Holger Barske states “the Eternal-Arts-OTL amplifier and the Sennheiser HD 800 is a loudspeaker-less dream team. Being extremely easy, light-footed and relaxed, this form of reproduction has no weaknesses and is not tiresome”. Nice sideline: The HD 800 fan club has now a new member.

HIFI-STARS reviews the dipole loudspeaker.

In the 8/2010 issue of HIFI-STARS, Alexander Aschenbrunner writes about the dipole loudspeaker. He explains clearly the working principle, and gives tips on how to best position the dipole loudspeaker: “For those who have enough space (at least 30sqm or preferably more), this is an excellent alternative to the normal loudspeaker designs.” As HIFI STARS tested the loudspeaker in conjunction with the FTP preamplifier and the OTL monos, they could give a first assessment of an entire Eternal Arts system: “The EternalArts system revealed in a most compelling way, how airy and realistic music reproduction can be made in an enclosed room. An entirely compatible system!”

Hifi & records review the EternalArts Mono blocks

In their third issue of 2010, hifi & records reviews the EternalArts mono blocks and discovers for themselves and their readers the development capability of the OTL principles. The monos were measured at 86 watt with a 8 ohm impedance at only 1% distortion. As the OTL behaves exactly the opposite way to a standard solid state amplifier, i.e. it increases its output, the higher the impedance, it becomes clear how well suited - 160 OTL watt - these amplifiers are for the 16 ohm dipole loudspeaker from the same company. And this with 1% distortion and not three and more % as so often quoted. Wilfried Kress adds “and these monos have enough power for normal loudspeakers and can show what OTLs can sonically achieve”.

Image hifi reviews the dipole loudspeaker DPL.

In their latest issue 4/2010, the EternalArts dipole loudspeaker wins the pole position in the ‘air-ness’ capability of loudspeakers. Cai Brockmann nails the principles and construction of the EternalArts speakers and discovers that combined with the correct electronics and positioning the “music releases itself totally from the speakers, the instruments and vocals are so clearly focussed with so much air to present themselves in such a deep and broad soundstage that there’s a risk of becoming addicted. On top the ‘small’ dipole manages the deep bass tones with tremendous dynamics with such ease that it’s difficult to imagine how slim and compact the dipole looks in the lounge setting”.

HIFI-STARS reviews the EternalArts OTL MkII
