Violectric HPA V100 Headphone Amplifier


The HPA V100 was developped with the target to enable highest transmission quality for low, medium and high impedance headphones

  • The Violectric V100 is an A/B class amp with excellent German build quality. It’s sturdy, basic and has a very detailed finish. You can immediately recognize the Violectric brand by the gold colored classy feet. In my opinion that’s the way an amplifier should be, simple but good! A special characteristic of the V100 headphone amplifier is that it has double Neutrik headphone outputs on the front. I really enjoyed the double outputs for testing but I also found it to come in very handy when switching headphones between different music styles. No need to get up

  • The inputs and outputs are situated on the rear panel, they are equipped with electronically balanced gold plated XLR connectors and unbalanced gold plated RCA connectors. Volume control is provided with a high-grade ALPS RK 27 pot with a large full metal rotary knob. Two headphones may be connected via 1/4" jacks on the front panel.

    Case and back panel are made of aluminium and are Nextel coated. 

    The 8 mm aluminium frontpanel is milled, sand blasted and black anodized. The labeling is laser engraved.
