Product Description

Fostex HP-A4BL, based on the current HP-A4, is an affordable USB DAC & Headphone amp offering balanced connection for headphones that is becoming more popular in the market for discerning headphones listeners.

Balanced & Powerful

The HP-A4BL, as the BL suggests, adds a 4-pin balanced output for optimum performance with high-end headphone models. Being mains powered, unlike the HP-A4 which uses USB bus power only, the HP-A4BL has over 3x more output power, to handle more demanding loads, with a plus 10dB high/low gain switch for better matching.

Increased Support

The Fostex HP-A4BL implements the Burr-Brown PCM1792A DAC chip, increasing file support to include 192/24 bit PCM and DSD 11.2Mhz (DSD256/Quad). The HP-A4BL can be used with the Fostex Audio player to decode FLAC, ALAC, DSD, WAV, AIFF and most other popular audio formats.
