Amplifiers & DAC
- Product Details
The Element exceeds TPD criteria, outmatching JDS Labs' baseline for audible perfection. A wide DAC dynamic range maintains low noise and minimises hiss. 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. Low gain of 1.0x is well suited to driving efficient IEMs, while High gain easily powers demanding full size cans. Additionally, The Element features extremely low output impedance, ensuring transparent frequency response for all headphone loads.
Microprocessor controlled relays completely eliminate turn on/off pops and thumps produced by lesser amps. Automatic DAC Line-Output allows you to toggle between headphones and powered speakers at the push of a button.
The Element was designed to simplify your desktop audio experience. Element's powerful headphone amp, ultra clean USB DAC, and graceful switch are all housed in a precision machined chassis with a comfortable knob. Enjoy seamless transitions between your powered speakers and headphones.
