HPA5R Headphone Amplifier especially designed for
HPA5R- This Amity® Headphone amplifier is engineered to get the
absolute best out of the 'best' headphones. It has two knobs for volume control,
one for the left channel and one for the right channel. The majority of our
customers like the high end positioning of music instruments: In a listening
session, they use the two knobs as a balance and a three dimension control.
This also gives our customers the possibility to equalize recordings which
have one channel 'louder'. This version is also for people who hear one side
louder than the other. This version has extra fine tuned electronics with
better than DVD 24-bit 128 k-Hz sound quality! It has very high definition
sound for tone studios and at home. Very expensive circuitry is used with
distortion under 0.001%. Noise is less than -100dB at 0dBV output. The rugged
housing has black anodized top and bottom and has natural anodized aluminium
front and back plates. Amity® can deliver this headphone amp also as silver
version with blue LED's. It has a high quality 1/4 inch stereo jack for
HPA5R- The electronics is the best you can buy: super-linear 10 hertz to 100
kilo-Hertz, super fast over 1 volt pro micro-second, drives perfectly Grado SR1 and
SR2 headphones with 32 Ohms. Output drivers are set to class 'A'. Reserve power is
more than 1,6 Watt pro channel even if not used for the 200mW maximum. Output
impedance is near 0 Ohms. The power switch is a push to toggle type.
HPA5R- Back There is a standard power connector for power
hookup. We use a P,N and Gnd 3-pole for power so that hi-fi freeks can test different
power cables to maybe improve the sound. There are special power cables on the hi-fi
market that are supposed to be able to do this. A three pole cable is also easy to
obtain in different countries for their special power outlets. The aluminium back
plate is natural anodized. The black rubber feet keep the housing from sliding on
polished surfaces. A pass-through double RCA connector option is possible for each
channel. This allows the HPA5R to be fit into high end chains. If you do not need
this option do not order it, because the unused RCA connectors can inject noise!
Please include your wishes on your order. For interconnection we recommend our
CHNC-1-HE cables to get even more High Quality sound. Why would anyone
cables that influence or color the sound? Our independant cable testers verify
that the CHNC-1-HE cables compare with cables for 100 times the price. Our cables
are stiff but can be bent to fit.
HPA5R Back- has two gold plated 'RCA' connectors (two pairs as option).
The 'CE' mark is for our declaration of conformity to the European low voltage
directive, to the European EMC directive and the European CE Marking directive.
Lightning struck by one of our customers, all other devices were destroyed, our
