Beyerdynamic has launched its latest headphone amp called the A1 for the audiophile market. The device uses an integrated circuit design and can reproduce a wide frequency range stretching above human perception. The device can handle up to 96kHz frequencies.
The high frequency handling capabilities of the device allows for SA-CD and DVD audio support. The device has microprocessor switching between two different high quality signals and there is no clicking when powering the amp on or off.
Dual inputs are provided with one allowing the incoming signal to be looped through with the A1 in standby mode. This lets the listener only power the A1 amp up if they want to. The headphone socket is 1/4" and the device has two stereo inputs for dual sources with two selector buttons.
