The DHA V380, by Violectric. A state-of-the-art DAC, a balanced headphone amplifier, and a pre-amplifier, all in one compact desktop unit.

DAC? Headphone amplifier? Pre-amplifier? Any combination? The headphone outputs or the rear line outputs can be activated/deactivated by a switch on the front. Connect not only your headphones to the Violectric DHA V380 but also your power amplifier or your active speakers and enjoy a compact and fantastic sounding headphone amplifier with a State-of-the-art DAC and a premium preamplifier!

The DAC includes a 32-bit re-sampler / re-clocker, plus two 32-bit DACs per channel using an ESS ES9026 PRO chipset. The latest findings from multiple test winners via Lake People, Violectric and Niimbus were implemented in this premium headphone amplifier. DHA V380 not only offers a powerful headphone amplifier, but also:

LOWEST NOISE through a very small amount of internal gain. This makes the amplifier's self-generated noise inaudible.

HIGH OUTPUT VOLTAGE through 50 V internal operating voltage. Therefor ideally suited for high-impedance headphones deserving high output voltage swing.

HIGH OUTPUT POWER thanks to powerful amplifiers that offer far more power even the most demanding headphones would need. So best suited for headphones with low impedances as well as planar headphones !!

HIGH DAMPING FACTOR due to lowest output impedance. Therefor the ideal match for difficult to drive headphones without negative side effects and with the guarantee for a uncompromising frequency response.
