Superior D/A conversion & outstanding headphone sound for digital and analogue sources combined in one box!
Similar to Phono-Box DS, Head-Box DS is a completely new construction, not compromising in sound quality. Using High-End components from BurrBrown, including second best DAC chip on the market „1792“ and SMD assembly, we are able to guarantee astonishing high-fidelity. Internal D/A
conversion offers additional RCA line output that can be used with any hifi-system as cost-effective sound upgrade for existing digital sound sources.
Playback for any headphone offers realistic sound-staging on all volume levels for 3 digital and 1 analogue sound source. Head Box DS also provides
a high-quality front display, that gives full information on current status. Luxury aluminium faceplate is available in silver or black finish.
