RHA has chosen to use IFA 2016 to give the public its first glance of the Dacamp L1, it's fully balanced headphone amplifier and DAC with dedicated channel processors.
RHA’s first product in the category, the Dacamp L1 uses an ES9018K2M DAC chip and class AB amplifier for each stereo channel; a configuration that's claimed to offer processing of the highest quality digital audio files from mobile and desktop source devices. The Dacamp L1 transmits high-resolution analogue audio signals to a wide range of headphones via balanced or unbalanced outputs. It boasts 4-pin Mini XLR (balanced) and 3.5mm headphone outputs alongside USB A, USB B Micro and mini Toslink (optical) digital inputs. There's support for high-resolution audio formats up to 32-bit/384kHz PCM and 5.6MHz DSD and three level gain control and EQ dials for bass/treble attenuation. It has a 4000mAh lithium-ion battery with a claimed 10 hour life and is compatible with mobile and desktop devices including Android, PC, Mac and iOS (MFi certified).
The Dacamp L1 is expected to go on sale from October for around £399.95. Click here for more.
