HA 200

Headphone Amplifier

 

 

2020 will be remembered as the year in which we introduced a whole new family of products: headphones. We develop a range of extremely innovative headphones and headphone amplifiers, evincing the same consistently systematic approach and commitment which we have always adopted in the development of our audio systems and loudspeakers. Our first model of headphone amplifier is the HA 200, and it benefits from our extensive expertise and several decades of experience in the development and manufacture of amplifiers and transducers. We have not been content simply to adopt existing technologies, preferring instead to develop and optimise them for the particular requirements of headphones.

The result is a device the like of which has never before existed, but it is far more than that: it sets completely new standards in respect of sound quality, performance, connection facilities and appearance. In fact, the HA 200 encompasses the combined requirements of professional users active in studio technology and those of audiophile music lovers, who wish to run multiple headphones from a single device.

Design & Technology

The HA 200 headphone amplifier is a completely new development, designed for dynamic and magnetostatic headphones. It is based on analogue T+A HV technology. Its high-performance output stages are of Class-A design and operate with a high idle current, enabling them to drive even the most demanding headphones without difficulty. Impedance matching allows the HA 200 to be fine-tuned to suit any headphones you wish to use. In addition to high-quality analogue inputs we have equipped the HA 200 with a large number of professional digital inputs.


The case design and materials harmonise perfectly with the unique electronics. The amplifier’s appearance references the legendary M-system, in line with our design philosophy of timeless reduction. The cooling fins are inspired by the HV series. The pin-sharp screen displays all relevant information in compact form. The volume display is inspired by the thrust control display in a jet plane’s cockpit, reflecting the sheer power of the HA 200.

Flexibility & Operation

Although the primary purpose of the HA 200 is to be an amplifier with an extraordinarily high performance, this unusual flexibility on the input side is very helpful to various types of user. Since the amplifier employs our very finest DSD and PCM converters, the sound quality of the digital inputs is just as good as that of the analogue ones. The wide range of connection facilities requires a very sophisticated control system and display for the amplifier as a whole. In fact, the HA 200 is intuitive and simple to operate, thanks to an ingenious combination of operating buttons and menu control system.
