Headphone users have never had it so good! There are some fabulous headphones on the market today, including the Sennheiser HD800. But to get these high-end headphones to produce their best quality sound, a dedicated amplifier is required.

 The Sennheiser HDVD 800 headphone amp is able to connect with digital sources via coaxial, optical, USB or AES-EBU (XLR) and is equipped with a high-quality Burr-Brown digital/analogue converter (DAC) that converts digital audio data into analogue signals with a resolution of 24 bits and a sampling rate of up to 192 kHz. 

In addition to the balanced (XLR) stereo analogue inputs, the HDVD 800 also has unbalanced analogue stereo inputs (RCA); incoming signals are balanced before further processing takes place. The analogue “out” sockets are balanced XLR only.

The front panel features an input selector, volume control and two sets of two headphone outputs, one pair for the conventional 6.3mm stereo jacks, and the other for balanced L+R, which you can use if you have an appropriate cable adaptor.

For any further fine tuning of output levels you require, there’s also a small Gain adjusting screw on the back panel.

To show off the quality ingredients which have gone into this very fine headphone amplifier, Sennheiser’s designers have put a window in the top, so you can look at the topography within!
