"Manley Labs has been designing and manufacturing professional and high fidelity audio equipment since the late 1980’s. In recent years, we have noticed audiophiles increasingly turning to personal headphone listening. To meet this new demand, Manley has combined its professional and domestic engineering skills and experience to develop an exciting and groundbreaking product, The Manley Headphone Amplifier."

 

  • 12 independent controls designed for maximum performance and customisable handling of sonic adjustments for a wide variety of audio experience
  • Custom hand-wound air-gapped dual-mode MANLEY IRONⓇ output transformers, designed and manufactured at Manley Labs, California
  • Output stage can be switched on-the-fly between all-triode Push-Pull and Single-Ended topology
  • Variable Feedback switch from 0dB to 10dB of Global Negative Feedback while maintaining absolutely ruler-flat frequency response
  • Volume control is performed by a Precision Stepped Relay ladder matrix
  • Balance, Treble and Bass Controls use silent conductive plastic potentiometers
  • Headphone Overload Protection System is user-configurable
  • 2 x 12AT7A Drivers, 4 x 6AQ5 Triode Strapped output tubes
  • Mono/stereo function
  • 3 x Stereo Outputs: Balanced XLR headphone outs, Unbalanced standard ¼†TRS headphone jack, RCA Preamplifier Outputs
  • 2 x Analog line-level RCA inputs
  • Maximum power 1W

When the headphone amplifier is powered down, another very useful feature is included; a direct preamplifier output which routes your first line input through the system to feed an external power amplifier or powered loudspeakers. Useful, as your main audio system source can drive either playback system without having to change upstream cabling. Thus, the Manley Headphone amplifier can also be used as a stand-alone transformer-coupled preamplifier!
