The Element Headphone Amplifier and DAC

JDS Labs The Element Headphone Amplifier and DAC



The Element is built for enjoyment. Dual LME49600s on 30V rails effortlessly drive the most demanding headphones. Dual gain and power buttons are relay controlled for comfortable interaction, and microprocessor logic completely eliminates turn on/off transients.

With peak output in excess of 1.5W, The Element drives all headphones on the market to extraordinary levels, from balanced armatures to planar magnetics.

Relay controlled power logic eliminates turn on pops and thumps produced by lesser amps.

The Element's extremely low output impedance ensures transparent frequency response for all headphone loads.

Wide DAC dynamic range and low noise minimize hiss, and allow harmless use of software volume controls.
