Violectric HPA V90 Headphone Amplifier


The HPA V90 was developed with the target to enable highest transmission quality for low, medium and high impedance headphones

  • The Violectric V series amps are consumer/ audiophile grade products from German pro audio house Lake People.

  • Due to its specific, variable, low-noise and low-distortion circuit design especially optimised for dynamic headphones, the HPA V90 fulfils even higher demands.

    LOW-NOISE: because of low internal gain.
    Therefore the self generated noise from the amplifier is not audible.

    HIGH OUTPUT VOLTAGE: through 60 Volt internal operating voltage.
    Therefore best suited for high impedance headphones.
    Over 90 % of all headphone amplifiers in the market offer not half that voltage !! 

    HIGH OUTPUT POWER: because of powerful amplifiers able to deliver much more current a headphone needs.
    Therefore best suited for low impedance headphones and even magnetostatic cans !!

    HIGH DAMPING FACTOR: through lowest output impedance.
    Therefore best suited for full control even over critical headphones
    with the guarantee to have flattest possible response.

    The inputs and outputs are situated on the rear panel, they are equipped with unbalanced Cinch connectors. 
    Volume control is provided by a large full metal rotary knob.

    Two headphones may be connected via 1/4" jacks on the front panel. 

    The unit offers a built-in power supply with IEC/CEE socket.

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

    The 3 mm front panel is black anodised. The labeling is laser engraved.
