Default NEW Fosgate Signature Headphone Amp

The Fosgate Signature Headphone Amp drives a broad range of headphones, combining a tube input stage with a wideband solid-state output. The power supply is similar to the one used in the Fosgate Signature Phono Preamp, using separate oversize storage capacitors on each amplification path of each channel to provide a rock solid supply voltage without voltage regulators to affect the signal. The circuit is configured so audio signals from one channel cannot couple to the other, preserving soundstage width and depth. Distortion and noise are below the threshold of hearing. The bandwidth is very wide allowing audio signals to pass through without colorations. Bandwidth is an amazing “ten times” the threshold of human hearing, 2Hz to 200kHz at -3dB. MSRP $1499.00

I think the Fosgate Signature Headphone Amp is a very cool looking headphone amplifier. Looks like it has two inputs, judging by the input switch, two position bass equilization, and a surround setting that can be defeated. With its tube input stage, and solid state output stage, the headphone amplifier should sound excellent. It also has a stereo tape output on the rear. The Signature Headphone amp incorporates a 35 second turn on muting which eleminates turn on/off thumps from the direct coupled circuit
