Arcam, designer and manufacturer of award winning Hi-Fi and home cinema equipment, has launched the all new rHead headphone amplifier in Canada. The compact, robust and beautifully built rHead encompasses true linear Class A design, resulting in absolutely no crossover distortion to ofer the purest sound. The layout has been optimized as well as areas like multiple ultra-low noise power supplies and a fully direct coupled signal path have been reviewed thus making a big difference – proof of the extensive care and attention brought to the product by the manufacturer. The volume control is an ultra-linear analog resistive ladder device, as used in Arcam’s flagship A49 integrated amplifier, eliminating tracking errors often found in normal potentiometer-based volume controls.
Comprehensive protection systems prevent damage to the rHead while not interfering in any way with the ultimate reproduction of the sound. The rHead sounds amazingly natural and completely engaging, and reveals the true character of any music that’s played through it.
The rHead is more than capable of driving the most demanding of headphones. Both RCA and XLR inputs (switchable) are available, as well as both 3.5 and 6.35mm sockets, allowing for ultimate headphone listening flexibility.
The rHead will begin shipping next month (September 2016) from Erikson Consumer and will be retailed for $899.
