Musical Fidelity LX2-HPA Headphone Amplifier
£199.00
LX2-HPA - Overview Musical Fidelity has extensive experience making super headphone amps, the LX2-HPA builds on our decades of experience to deliver a great performer with beautiful, restrained and tasteful aesthetics. Technical Performance A headphone amplifier is like a small power amp, relative to the load (the headphones) the technical requirements are similar: Excellent load tolerance, high stability margins, low distortion, wide bandwidth, low noise, excellent channel separation. The LX2-HPA will easily drive any commercially produced headphone. It's high current delivery and excellent stability margins result in completely uncoloured neutral performance. Distortion at less than 0.0035%, wide band is vanishingly low and certainly inaudible. Bandwidth extends to about 80kHz and even at 40kHz the distortion remains well below 0.05%. A remarkable achievement. The outstanding noise ratio of better than 112dB means that the music comes from a true 'black velvet' background field. Stereo separation is excellent and assures a rock solid...

Heed Audio Canamp MKII Class A Headphone Amplifier
£264.00 £330.00
Headphones can be considered as high quality loudspeakers, but with a much lower power requirement. For this reason, they have distortion levels on an order of magnitude lower than conventional speakers, and therefore are capable of showing up amplifier deficiencies more clearly. What’s more, headphones are one-way systems, with very few exceptions, and for this reason crossovers do not interfere with sound quality. Consequently, a headphone amplifier must offer the best possible sound quality, even at very low volume levels, whilst working not unlike a real power amplifier. The Canamp, our best-seller headphone amplifier can fulfil all these criteria offering a no-compromise solution in a realistic package. It is the ideal auxiliary amplification for the majority of headphones including many top-class models from all the well-known manufacturers, and even some notoriously low impedance representatives can be driven by the CanAmp with astonishingly good results. The synergy of the AKG K701...

Lehmann Rhinelander Headphone Amplifier - Kronos AV - Interest Free Credit 0% - FREE Shipping
£375.00
The popular Rhinelander headphone amplifier is based on the legendary Black Cube Linear by Lehmann audio, which is used by well-known industry professionals such as A.J. van den Hul, Andreas Spreer (TACET) and Maarten de Boer (The Masters). Now you can experience a huge part of the Linear's transparency, tonal balance and micro-detail, and at only a fraction of the cost. The Rhinelander is placed in the highly-competitive sector of ambitioned, budget-conscious, audiophile listeners. Moreover, with some mild tweaks the Rhinelander can also be used as a single source pre-amplifier, like the superior Linear model. The Rhinelander is equipped with two inputs and a relays source selection. If you don't need the second line input, you can reconfigure the input jack to a output. All you need to do is to replace two jumpers. Even with entry-level devices, Lehmannaudio puts a lot of effort into details.

No global feedback; just music... A high quality headphone amplifier is as important for listening to music with a pair of headphones as are stable power amplifiers for the loud-speakers of your stereo setup. Dynamic headphones are far more different than most people realize. For the same sound pressure level the power needed with different headphone models can vary up to a factor of about 500! Impedances can be different to a factor of more than 20! This is the reason why different headphone models have very individual requirements to the headphone amplifier driving them in terms of voltage and current. Everybody who once has connected a high quality headphone to any given standard headphone output knows about this problem. With the launch of the Black Cube Linear there is now a high end headphone amplifier to realize even the highest demands to reference quality headphone music reproduction. The selectable...
