Transforming analogue and digital sound with stunning detail and clarity, the HP8 MKII has been created with utmost care and precision.

Top of the range elements are all carefully hard wired by hand point to point with no printed circuitry. Combining Teflon audio cables, gold plated terminals and high-quality ALPS potentiometers the HP8 MKII creates undiluted sonic purity.
