Cayin HA-1A Headphone Amp
The HA-1A may be the best thing that's ever happened to headphones...champagne sound for beer-budget bucks." Sam Tellig, Stereophile, June 2006
The Cayin HA-1A is a fully adjustable high quality audiophile tube Headphone Amplifier.
This is one seriously heavy-duty piece of gear. Weighing in at 15 pounds, the HA-1A is made from ultra-high-quality parts and looks stunning. The sound is so typically Cayin; natural and musically delicate without excessive warmth or detail. It's got an impedance selector switch that ranges from 6 to 300 ohms, so that it interfaces perfectly with any pair of headphones. And, with an efficient pair of bookshelf speakers, the HA-1A can actually serve as a very effective integrated amp. How's that for versatility?
"Pardon me, but that grasp you might have heard was me catching my breath and gathering my wits after unpacking the Cayin HA-1A headphone amplifier. Actually, make that 'vacuum tube integrated headphone amplifier.' A jewel box of a beauty, the Cayin is for the dedicated headphone aficionado - the pleasure-seeking hobbyist who prizes Mount Blanc pens, Panerai wristwatches, or cases of Antinori Solaia 1997." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, January 2008
