Product Description

TEAC HA-P5 Portable Headphone Amplifier with on board USB DAC was designed and manufactured from the ground-up with a focus on compactness and comfort, at TEAC's own factory in Tokyo.

It weighs only 182g which is the lightest among TEAC’s portable headphone amplifiers. The fundamental circuit design is based on the highly reputed TEAC Reference 501 series. 

Burr-Brown PCM1795

A high-performance DAC PCM1795 from Burr-Brown allows the Hi-Res digital data to maximise its potential, as discrete designed push-pull circuit delivers high-quality audio signal from its 1/8" headphone jack. Burr-Brown PCM1795 settles in the heart of digital section to process millions of calculations a second that Hi-Res audio data require.

Dual Master Clocks

Master clock is another key player on digital processing. The HA-P5 employs two high-precision crystal master clocks for 44.1kH and 48kHz systems, to be synchronised with sampling frequency of the incoming digital audio signal precisely, which means an accurate Digital-to-Analog conversion is processed. Asynchronous transfer mode is also supported to cancel less-accurate clock signal sent from a computer or smartphone, – that affects to digital audio data while travelling – known as jitter-noise.

Multi-platform design

The HA-P5 supports both USB A and USB Micro B inputs for direct connection with iOS devices – meaning no additional cable is required, such as Apple's Lightning-USB Camera Adapter –, allowing DSD 5.6MHz and PCM 24-bit/192kHz Hi-Res Audio input. They also allow connections with Android device, and Windows/Macintosh computers as well, at DSD 5.6MHz and PCM 24-bit/192kHz. A Hi-Res Audio Player software/app is provided free of charge.

Push-Pull Circuit

An A/B class headphone amplifier design is discretely composed with Push-pull circuit and Hi-Fi Op-amps. Know-hows from the world's reference headphone amplifier HA-501 are stuffed into the HA-P5, and its noise-reduced and crystal clear circuit design delivers 10 to 100,000Hz of frequency response and 110dB of Signal-to-Noise ratio, that mean the HA-P5 delivers both details of the master tape quality brought by Hi-Res audio format and nuances of the atmosphere as they were originally played.

Digital/Analog Inputs

In addition to the USB digital audio input, the HA-P5 equips both coaxial and optical digital audio inputs and a conventional analogue line audio input, which are essential for portable headphone amplifiers. The coaxial and optical digital inputs supporting 24-bit/192kHz allows you to connect with a Hi-Res Audio player to compare differences of the sound generated by different D/A converter chip.

Volume Knob Design

The volume knob is seamlessly designed with the top-end shape to prevent from unwanted operations in your pocket or bag. Embowed curve of the knob comfortably fits your finger as you operate, and is also allows touch control.

Status indicators that tell sampling rate of the incoming digital audio and battery indicator are carefully and elegantly located on the front. These allow you to confirm type of signal that is actually being played back at a glance. Battery level is displayed in 5 steps, and the blue LED around the volume knob blinks when it is low.

Universal USB charging

The HA-P5 employs full aluminium body not only for light-weight and robustness, but also for noise shielding. A built-in Li-ion rechargeable battery allows 5 hours of operation (at digital connection), and it is compatible with de-fact standard USB AC adapters that supply 1.0A or more DC power.

HQ Print Circuit Boards

Any fine audio components and circuit design will not work well unless they are firmly mounted on a high-quality circuit board. A thick-membrane copper layer with even thickness is employed for lowering impedance of the entire circuits, and its evenness contributes to equalise current level on the both power and ground lines, consequently, it refines sound quality. Soldering process is operated in the soldering pool filled with nitrogen that eliminates oxidisation during the process, and improves reliability of the soldering. Also, material of the soldering is carefully selected for finer sound quality by improving current flow.
