Audio-Technica AT-HA5050H Hybrid Headphone Amplifier

Product Descriptions

Audio-Technica AT-HA5050H Hybrid Headphone Amplifier

Not all headphones are created equal. Each model has a distinct personality and musical identity. To enjoy a sound that best suits you and your headphones, we’ve developed Audio-Technica AT-HA5050H a headphone amp that offers four variable output impedances (two outputs each of 0.1, 33, 82, and 120 ohms). Because it uses transistors for the power amp stage and a pair of tubes for the preamp stage, the AT-HA5050H is a hybrid Hi-Res Audio headphone amplifier.

The bipolar transistors in the preamp provide distortion-free Class A amplification that is potent enough to drive headphones of various impedances without any issues, while the tubes in the preamp provide warmth and depth to the music. Each component of the amplifier is fed by a separate power supply unit with quick recovery diodes and regulating circuitry in order to further optimize power supply in the amplifier.

Two analogue inputs—L/R RCA line jacks and L/R balanced XLR jacks—as well as two digital inputs—S/PDIF digital coaxial input and USB input with selectable Asynchronous and Adaptive modes—are provided on the AT-HA5050H. Modern digital audio converters (DACs) are designed to work with digital audio formats up to PCM 32-bit/384 kHz and DSD128. Classic analogue VU metres with a VU range selector switch, a sizable volume control knob, and an input attenuator switch are additional features.

Special Order

  • Two E88CC vacuum tubes are used in the preamp stage to achieve the warm, mellow sound you can only get from tubes
  • A pair of Toshiba bipolar power transistors provide strong, driving power and high-quality sound
  • Sifam VU meters provide precise metering with a classic feel that matches the warm, analog tone from the tubes
  • Custom-made R-Core transformer counters spikes and instability in the power line, providing consistent, high-resolution amplifier performance with distinctive hybrid sonic characteristics
  • Lundahl transformers, Nichicon electrolytic capacitors and WIMA polyester capacitors are used to provide the best sound quality possible
  • Eight headphone jacks with choice of four different output impedances (0.1, 33, 82 and 120 ohms x 2) give you control of the sonic presentation without the extra noise that might be introduced by an impedance selector switch
  • Two analog (unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR) and two digital (USB and SPDIF digital coaxial) inputs allow the amplifier to be used with a wide range of equipment
  • Includes power cable
