Product Description

To allow headphones perform at their best while also letting the user choose the sound they like, Audio Technica have included a variety of sockets with different output impedance in their AT-HA5050H hybrid headphone amplifier for the optimal output to match your specific needs.

The D/A converter is optimized to be compatible with formats up to PCM 32 bit/384 kHz and DSD128 through USB with selectable Asynchronous and Adaptive modes. A SPDIF coaxial digital input and two analog inputs are included with RCA jacks for unbalanced and XLR sockets for balanced audio.

Unlike previously released headphone amplifiers, the sux “H” in the model name signies that AT-HA5050H is a Hybrid amplifier that employs a pair of tubes at the preamp stage and transistors at the power amp stage.

Employing E88CC tubes in the preamp adds warmth and depth to the music, while its bipolar transistors provide distortion-free Class A amplification that is powerful enough to drive any headphones, irrespective of their impedance level. A pair of an elegant VU meters add to the analog feel of tubes.
