    • Beyerdynamic A1

      With the introduction of the A1, Beyerdynamic enters a new area of audio reproduction. After intense fundamental research, Beyerdynamic have succeeded in developing a brand new audiophile-quality headphone amplifier, providing precise audio performance even when used with demanding 600 ohm headphones. With its unique intelligent-circuit concept, the A1 is capable of reproducing an amazingly wide frequency range which stretches way above human perception.

      Underneath the large front-panel-mounted aluminium volume control of the A1 from Beyerdynamic is a high grade ALPS-potentiometer for smooth volume adjustment. This is just part of the attention to detail that ranges from the outer unit construction to its quality integral components - use of a generously-dimensioned toroidal core transformer, plus a combination of carefully selected components in the A1 allows even the highest-impedance headphones to be driven flawlessly over the entire frequency range. The provision of a special impedance headphone output ensures that the control range of the volume potentiometer is also ideal for headphones with lower impedance.

      The first of the two provided line-ins is hardwired to the A1 line out. The result allows the incoming signal to be looped through even with the A1 in standby mode. So you only have to power up the A1 if you want to increase the enjoyment of your music using your headphones. Two blue LEDs in the front panel monitor the active signal input, with a further multicolour LED giving information about the A1's operating status.

      The Beyerdynamic A1 - The uncompromising "true companion" for your headphones and a pure masterpiece in audio achievement.

       What Hi-Fi? Award Winner 2010: Best Headphone Amplifier £500+

      "There are two parts to this review: Beyerdynamic's T1 headphones, paired with Beyerdynamic's A1 headphone amplifier. If you want to hear every last nuance of sound from a recording, we haven't come across a better way of doing it than this Beyerdynamic combination."

      "Certainly, no sub-£20,000 amp and speaker pairing we've heard has got anywhere near unravelling a complex recording as well as this duo."
