If you're a fan of Beyerdynamic, you'll know that their 600 Ohm headphones are pretty darn hard to drive. Luckily, we know just the amp/DAC combo for the job - Audeze's newest product comes equipped with an ultra-low noise floor and plenty of dynamic shove. Crafted with the highest quality materials and with killer looks to boot, the Deckard is sure to make your headphones sing.
Note: At checkout, you may choose to add the Beyerdynamic T1 (+$600) or the Beyerdynamic DT 990 600 ohm (+$100) headphones. You can also choose between voltage options of 100V, 110V, and 220V.
While Audeze has gained notoriety for their top-flight planar magnetic headphones, the company has recently branched out by producing an equally compelling amplifier that pairs nicely with nearly any headphone on the market. Featuring top shelf specs and design, the Deckard is a single-ended Class-A amp married to a high performance 32-bit/384kHz DAC that is sure to draw out the very best from your digital source.
The Deckard boasts up to 20dB of gain with a mere 3 ohms of output impedance. Along with the gain switch located on the front panel, the amplifier is ready to deliver both power and elegance to your personal audio rig. The industrial-inspired chassis includes both RCA inputs and outputs on the back panel so the Deckard can also double as a line-level preamp. The USB input connects to any Windows or MAC computer.
Coming at you with incredibly articulate and balanced sound, the T1 features innovative Tesla drivers that triggered a paradigm shift in transducer technology when they were first released. As all that power requires some real juice, the headphones come with a 600 Ohm impedance that requires a serious amplifier, like the Audeze Deckard, to bring out their very best.
There are many things to love about the DT990 sound, but the sonic reproduction is the cornerstone of Beyerdynamic's design and comes through with forward sounding highs and punchy rich bass response. Throughout the entire range, the extra-wide soundstage brings you excellent instrument separation and near ideal sound imaging.
