The Element AMP simplifies your desktop audio experience. EL Amp combines a powerful headphone amplifier with a comfortable knob, housed in a precision machined chassis. Enjoy seamless transitions between your powered speakers and headphones.
- type: headphone amplifier (AMP), Auto Line Output, metall housing;
- technology: Ultra High Power (30V), Low Output Impedance, Dual Gain, completely eliminate turn on/off pops;
- connections: Headphone Output: 6.35mm (1/4"); Analog Input: RCA; Line-Output: RCA;
- all JDS products are "Made in America" and directly imported from HEADSOUND.
The EL AMP from JDS is the next member of the ELEMENT family. The technical data are outstanding and the design follows the puristic family style. Amplification at its best.
Relay controlled power logic eliminates turn on pops and thumps produced by lesser amps.
Ultra High Power
With peak output in excess of 1.5W, The Element drives all headphones on the market to extraordinary levels, from balanced armatures to planar magnetics.
Reference Grade Sound
The Element exceeds TPD criteria, outmatching our baseline for audible perfection.
Low Output Impedance
The Element's extremely low output impedance ensures transparent frequency response for all headphone loads.
Low gain of 1.0x is well suited to driving efficient IEMs, while High gain easily powers demanding full size sets.
Auto Line Output
Automatic Line-Output allows you to toggle between headphones and powered speakers at the push of a button.
