CIAUDIO VHP-2 Headphone Amp

MADE IN THE USA! ORDER TODAY! Channel Island Audio's Award-Winning Headphone Amplifier. This is a Fantastic Headphone Amp!

The new CIAudio VHP-2 is an improved version of the highly acclaimed VHP-1. Improvements include a new ALPS® Blue Velvet potentiometer, gold-plated circuit board with silver solder construction, and a handful of upgraded internal components. The VHP-2 is a versatile studio quality headphone amplifier for use with most any headphones. Unlike most amplifiers, it uses a unique current-feedback circuit rather than opamps, and is optimized for a wide range of load impedances (30-700 ohms).

"More dynamics, better soundstaging and an even quieter background make this one a real treat for serious headphone users."
– Tone Audio

This high bandwidth, extremely low noise design yields greater than 120 dB of dynamic range and exceeds the capabilities of the human ear, ensuring that nothing audible is lost due to the amplifier. Two gain settings, selectable by a convenient front panel switch, allow for quick and easy optimization for high or low efficiency headphones.

Current-on-demand at the output, enables the amplifier to respond quickly and linearly when necessary without risk of output distortion. When large amounts of output power are suddenly needed, the amplifier can respond extremely quickly without raising the noise floor of the system and degrading the signal-to-noise performance, and the high slew rate prevents odd order distortion. Other features include Short Circuit and Thermal protection, looped-through output jacks and external 14vAC power supply.

"The Channel Islands Audio VHP-1 is a heck of a good headphone amplifier. It's versatile and it's tiny, which means you can pretty much put it where you need it. It's also convenient, possessing an impedance switch and a unity-gain feed-through, both thoughtful features. By itself, it would have made my short list of must-audition headphone amps. Add the VAC-1, however, and the VHP-1 rockets to the top of that short list. The increases in bottom-end extension and power—and, more important, dynamic contrast—make it a serious rival for the best of class in its price range—and maybe way above it."
– Wes Phillips, Stereophile
