The Sanskrit Pha headphone amp can handle a range of IEMs and over-ear cans, and also functions as a preamplifier for your speakers. The final piece, the Sanskrit LPS linear power supply, works seamlessly with the other two elements.

Features & Construction

Precision-machined from a single block of black anodized aluminum, all three devices have a brushed profile and a thick, sandblasted front panel. On the left side, you’ll find the power button and the source selector, which allows you to switch between DAC, amplifier, and preamplifier functions. Two small buttons on either side of the power button can be used to adjust the volume of the headphone jack or RCA sockets. The right side of the front panel features a black plexiglass screen with LED indicators and, on the Pha amp, a 6.35-millimeter headphone jack.
