With the HPA V340 Violectric presents a new headphone amplifier of the high-end class. According to the press release, thanks to its high output voltage and output power, it should be able to drive low-impedance and high-impedance headphones without any effort – up to and including magnetostats.
Violectric HPA V340 – Features & Interfaces
Basically it is based on the low-noise circuit of its big brother Violectric V550, which costs a third more and has a few more features such as a balance controller.
The Violectric HPA V430 has two cinch high-level inputs and offers connections on the front for two unbalanced headphones (6.3 mm stereo jack) and one balanced (XLR four-pole). In addition, there is an XLR and cinch output, which can be conveniently used with a fixed level or volume-controlled switch on the back. This means that the HPA V340 is not only to be taken seriously as a preliminary stage, it can also be easily integrated into existing setups without “wasting” inputs or outputs. In addition, we find, also on the back, a mouse piano for channel-separated fine tuning of the pre-gain.
The amp, developed and manufactured at Lake Constance, is now available.
