RNHP headphone amp based on desktop mixer circuitry
To address what it describes as the shortcomings of headphone amplifiers currently on the market, Rupert Neve Designs has released the RNHP. The manufacturer has designed the precision headphone amplifier to be based on the headphone output circuitry from its 5060 Centerpiece desktop mixer.
Housed inside a VESA-mountable steel chassis, the RHNP reportedly features near-zero output impedance and high-power, high-headroom circuitry, which the manufacturer states as allowing it to drive any set of headphones currently available without compromising on quality. The headphone amp also includes a level and impedance-calibrated +4dBu line, unbalanced RCA and 3.5mm inputs.
