Headphones amplifier and USB DAC JDSLabs The Element. This sweet-sounding, made-in-the-US, digital converter/headphone amp is a winner, says the Audiophiliac.The JDS Labs Element's big draw is big power, which comes in handy if you have a set of power-hungry planar-magnetic headphones. Then again, a headphone amp that can put out more than 1 watt can work its magic on any full-size headphone.

HEADPHONES AND USB DAC AMPLIFIER ANALYSIS

JDSLabs designed The Element to enjoy your headphones without compromise. Its amplifier renders shocking power, driven by an ultra clean DAC, all housed in a precision machined chassis with a comfortable knob. The Element beautifully drives headphones of all technologies and sizes. It features automatic DAC Line Output.

Smart Logic
Microprocessor controlled relays completely eliminate turn on/off pops and thumps produced by lesser amps.

Ultra High Power
With 30V rails and peak output in excess of 1.5W, The Element drives all headphones on the market to extraordinary levels, from balanced armatures to planar magnetics.

Reference Grade Sound
The Element exceeds TPD criteria, outmatching our baseline for audible perfection.

Low Output Impedance
The Element's extremely low output impedance ensures transparent frequency response for all headphone loads.

Dual Gain
Low gain of 1.0x is well suited to driving efficient IEMs, while High gain easily powers demanding full size sets.

Low Noise
Wide DAC dynamic range and low noise minimize hiss, and allow harmless use of software volume controls.
