When you have a pair of high powered headphones operating off high impedance, you won’t hear anywhere near their potential unless you route them through an amplifier. Giving you a powerful headphone amp optimized for ideal audio, the Beyedynamic A20 Headphone Amplifier lets you drive your cans clear across the entire sound range.
While a lot of amps add an integrated DAC, Beyerdynamic wanted to concentrate solely on the amplifier for maximum performance. Limited to only an analog circuit, the A 20 will stay relevant for years to come, even as your digital components become outdated. Additionally, you can easily pair the A20 with any DAC, giving you more freedom of choice in your quest for perfect sound.
Every aspect of the A20 bespeaks quality, from the brushed aluminum housing with seamless construction to the ALPS potentiometer that allows variable volume control. The internal circuitry is modeled after Beyerdynamic’s top of the line A1, so you can count on the quality of its output. Speaking of which, you have your pick of two headphone jacks in front, as well as an analog RCA output in the back, letting you listen with a friend or keep multiple pairs plugged in, just in case.
As the A20 features a built-in power supply, you don’t have to worry about an external source adding distortion to the signal. Furthering signal strength, the input line is entirely free from signal loss, courtesy of the hard-wired RCA output. Able to cater to two headphones with nominal impedance from 30 to 600 Ohms, the Beyerdynamic A20 Headphone Amplifier is a truly powerful sound booster that brings new scope to every song.
