The HPA V220 was developped with the target to enable ultimate transmission quality for low- , medium- and high-impedance headphones.
Due to its specific, variable, low-noise and low-distortion circuit design especially optimised for dynamic headphones, the HPA V220 fulfils even most sophisticated demands.
Furthermore HPA V220 offers selectable inputs and an output management.
Because of low internal gain. Therefore the self generated noise from the amplifer is not audible.
High output voltage
Through 60 Volt internal operating voltage. Therefore best suited for high impedance headphones. Over 90 % of all headphone amplifiers in the market offer not half that voltage.
High output power
Because of powerful amplifiers able to deliver much more current a headphone needs. Therefore best suited for low impedance headphones and even magnetostatic cans.
High damping factor
Through lowest output impedance. Therefore best suited for full control even over critical headphones with the garantee to have flatest possible response.
The inputs and outputs are situated on the rear panel, they are equipped with electronically balanced gold plated XLR connectors and unbalanced gold plated RCA connectors.
Balanced and unbalanced line outputs on the rear panel. These can be set to have fixed output level (mirrored from the input) or variable output level from the volume control.
Volume control is provided with a high-grade ALPS RK 27 pot with a large full metal rotary knob.
Additionally a balance control serves to correct the stereo image.
V220 incorporates the award winning famous 8-transistor (per channel) amps from V200 for a smooth and relaxed sound stage.
The output management enables the amp to act as your personal preamp when desired.
Feel free to activate the headphones outputs or the line outputs independently from each other with dedicated buttons on the front panel.
