While the Pulse IV will only be in pre-production, we already know what features the finished product will have. Following on from the Pulse III, the latest version will keep up with the vinyl revival by having an MM/MC phono stage taken from Leema's £600 Essentials phono stage.
Leema has also made moves towards higher quality audio, with a 32-bit/384kHz DSD-capable DAC with a USB Type-B input, as well as aptX Bluetooth for wirelessly streaming through your smartphone or portable player. There are also a further six digital inputs: three optical and three electrical S/PDIF.
Alongside 80W of power, the Pulse IV also has a front mounted headphone amplifier for "late night or personal listening".
The Pulse IV comes in either in black or silver finishes and will be available in early autumn, priced £2,300.
