Headphone and and DAC converter in one.
The new Fostex HP-P1 is the World’s first portable headphone amplifier with D/A converter which receives its audio signal digitally from iPod/iPhone 30-pin dock connector. Featuring an ultra-high quality 32bit DAC and exclusively designed audiophile analog circuitry, the sonic performance and fidelity of the headphone signal simply has to be experienced to be believed. The tone, the depth and the effective headroom are nothing short of stunning, giving the impression of almost limitless audio power reserves on tap at all times.
Add to this a 3-step gain control to accommodate all types of headphones, a built-in /PDIF Digital Out, twin digital filters and a rugged, yet cool, aluminum alloy chassis and you have one of the best portable headphone amps available for your iPod / iPhone.
Everything about the Fostex HP-P1 screams quality. - First up is the audio processing. Using 32bit AKM’s AK4480, which features innovative on-chip symmetrical circuitry to avoid noise coupling, thus improving sound quality, coupled with 2 filters including a 32-bit minimum delay filter designed specifically for acoustic sounds, the HP-P1 delivers exceptional sonic performance, allowing music to ‘flow through’ to your ears in an supremely natural way.
Then there’s the build quality and the sheer beauty of the thing. Engineered from aircraft grade aluminium and built to exacting standards, the HP-P1 is a tactile delight to handle and operate.
The HP-P1 comes complete with an exclusively designed carry case which can be clipped to a belt if desired. In addition, a 50mm Dock connector USB cable and a USB power cable (Type A to mini B) are also included.
