From Klipsch
Klipsch announces the debut of its Heritage Headphone Amplifier. It is a true audiophile solution with mid-century design characteristics that drives headphones to deliver music in the cleanest, most efficient manner, for higher energy and dynamics.

The Klipsch Heritage Headphone Amplifier is encased in formed aluminum with a genuine walnut veneer, giving it a nostalgic, vintage feel. Inputs and gain settings are controlled by weighted anodized aluminum switches and knobs for a quality and satisfying tactile response. Its analog switches operate through relays, delivering the lowest distortion in its class and advanced soundstaging abilities.

The Klipsch Heritage Headphone Amplifier is driven by a high-resolution, high-performance ES9018K2M ESS Sabre32 Reference digital-to-analog converter (DAC) capable of 192-kHz/24-bit sample rates, delivering the cleanest sound and with minimal distortion. Complete with dual Class-AB TI TPA6120A2 amplifiers, the signal path minimizes crosstalk while increasing total system output. The amplifiers are as quiet as the reference DAC in order to provide the optimal signal-to-noise ratio. In addition to its primary use as a discrete balanced headphone amplifier, the Heritage Headphone Amplifier doubles as a digital-to-analog processor for USB audio, optical, and coaxial inputs, making it an ideal desktop companion.

"Harkening back to vintage audio gear, this amplifier brings the nostalgia of flipping switches and turning analog knobs, while packing first-class electronics for the best possible rendition of your music", said Vlad Grodzinskiy, Sr. Manager of Product Development for Klipsch Group, Inc.

The Klipsch Heritage Headphone Amplifier (U.S. MSRP $499) is packaged with a power supply, global power clips, and a 2.0m USB Type-A to USB Type-B Case. It is available now at select retailers and at Klipsch.com.
