SPL Series One Phonitor Headphone Amps

SPL Series One "Phonitor One d" Headphone Amp

                      SPL Series One “Phonitor One d” Headphone Amp

SPL of Germany has developed a new product line that combines the sound of its big devices with a desktop-friendly design and an affordable price for the ambitious user. The Series One was equally developed for pro recordists, home studios, live audio engineers and media creatives of all kinds. The first two Series One devices, Phonitor One ($499) and Phonitor One d ($699) – both headphone amplifiers — are now shipping. More devices of the new Series One will be announced soon. The SPL line of products is distributed by Focal-Naim America in the US and Canada.

The “Phonitor One” headphone amp allows high-quality monitoring of analog sources. Thanks to the Phonitor Matrix with Crossfeed control, the user can create mixes that sound as if they were mixed on speakers. An analog volume controller, an aluminum front panel and a high-end metal housing show that no compromises have been made in terms of quality.

The “Phonitor One d” features the acclaimed AKM AK4490 Velvet Sound™ premium DAC chip in the digital-to-analog converter, which thanks to its new architecture reproduces the finest sound details. PCM signals up to 768 kHz/32-Bit and Direct Stream Digital up to DSD4 playback leave nothing to be desired. A balanced stereo line output means that the Phonitor One d can be also used as a stand-alone DAC.
