THX Debuts Its First Headphone Amplifier

By |


THX_brand_page_trailer_logo.gifTHX, which was recently acquired by Razer, has introduced its first THX-branded component, the THX AAA headphone amplifier. THX says the new amp has a very low level of distortion (-137 dB), combined with high output power (63 mW) and low power consumption. The AAA technology first appeared in Benchmark Media's AHB2 power amplifier, and now THX is testing the waters with its own branded component. Pricing has not yet been announced.

 

From THX
THX has released the THX AAA headphone amplifier, an audio lover's dream product that offers the world's lowest levels of distortion and noise alongside incredibly low power consumption. For the discerning consumer of audio who enjoys music, movies, or VR, the THX AAA amplifier bests every other amplifier product in the marketplace and, on par with the THX mission, guarantees the highest quality audio experience.

The THX AAA amplifier is THX's first foray into the arena of component technologies. It reduces harmonic, intermodulation, and crossover distortions by 20-100x for an unbelievably realistic and fatigue-free listening experience, and reduces power consumption by a factor of 10 for incredibly long battery life. THX AAA accomplishes this using a patented topology to cancel conventional distortion mechanisms and reduce bias current. THX AAA improves audio fidelity, shrinks battery size and extends playtime.The flagship THX AAA amplifier boasts nearly unmeasurable distortion of -137 dB, high output power of 63 mW, and only 5 mW of quiescent power consumption.

"The THX brand is synonymous with uncompromised quality, best-in-class performance and consistency," said Laurie Fincham, Senior Vice President of Audio Research and Development at THX. "We first introduced AAA technology in the Benchmark Media AHB2 Power Amplifier, which was designed with low distortion and noise levels to meet the high demands of prosumers and studio settings. Now, we have adapted the technology to offer the same listening experience to consumers by minimizing the distortion while using less power and preserving more battery."

This new product marks the latest development in a budding period for THX. In recent months, the company has expanded its certification program to live entertainment and concert experiences, procured new ownership under the Razer brand (the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers) and named a new Chief Technology Officer to further support its commitment to addressing evolving consumer needs.
