Premium Headphone Amplifier with D.A. Hybrid Amplifier Circuit
Our non-feedback S-Master technology maintains the purity of dynamic, straight digital sound. Our new D.A. Hybrid Amplifier Circuit takes this one step further, enhancing its precision and sound quality with an analog feed-forward amp. The analog amplifier corrects the errors caused by switching amplification.
S-Master amplifies music signals digitally without signal loss. High impedance headphones require high power but this can create a difference between the actual and ideal signal. The analog amplifier can correct these signal deficiencies for a cleaner, more natural sound.
Capturing every note and nuance with DSEE HX™. Experience your music as the artist intended, in near High-Resolution Audio quality. Our new DSEE HX™ upscaling technology features four additional modes to the standard: female vocal, male vocal, percussions and strings, for optimal sound reproduction.
Personalising sound with the new DSD Remastering Engine. Offering double the conversion accuracy of previous models, the new DSD Remastering Engine let you convert all PCM music sources into DSD 11.2MHz. The technology utilises FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) to convert any signal into the DSD sound format.
To maximise the potential of the new D.A. Hybrid Amplifier Circuit, our engineers developed the amplifier using an advanced FPGA processor. This let them fully customise the technology and develop something truly unique.
Our DC Phase Linearizer works to effectively replicate a wide variety of sonic signatures. It applies digital-signal processing to match the phase characteristics of various types of analog amplifier to deliver a more analog-like sound.
