JDS Labs philosophy of conveying pure sound with power and control is realised in The Element. This muscular desktop amplifier and ultra clean DAC makes it simple to enjoy uncoloured sound with any headphone directly from your computer. Housed in a precision crafted chassis topped with a large and comfortable volume knob, The Element expresses its simple but powerful character: potent and pure music.
Impressive power output and sound quality.
The Element is able to drive any type of headphone or earphone, from balanced armatures to planar magnetics without emphasising any frequencies and zero background noise. Microprocessor controlled relays completely eliminate turn on/off pops and thumps produced by standardly designed amplifiers.
Further maintaining JDS Labsminimalist design, The Element has only a 6.35mm headphone jack on the front. All remaining controls and connections comprising of power switch, gain switch, USB input, and twin analogue jacks are situated at the back with a well thought out layout. To indicate that The Element is powered on, a ring of light with smooth copper colouration runs along the edge of the volume control.
Simplified desktop audio.
Ultra High Power
With 30V rails and peak output in excess of 1.5W, The Element drives all headphones on the market to extraordinary levels, from balanced armatures to planar magnetics.
Reference Grade Sound
The Element exceeds TPD criteria, outmatching our baseline for audible perfection. A wide DAC dynamic range maintains low noise and minimises hiss.
Low Output Impedance
