It is a high-end headphone amplifier for sound connoisseurs, which is now available with the Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp. The new headphone amplifier is based on the brilliant circuitry of its big brother, the Violectric HPA V550 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp and Preamp.
Lake People electronic GmbH is once again expanding its product range with a fine headphone amplifier from the Violectric brand, namely the new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp. It is said to be characterised by a sophisticated circuit concept and thus to fully meet even the highest demands.
The new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp is one of a series of solutions that have been developed based on experience in the professional studio environment and are now also available in the hi-fi field under the Violectric brand.
Violectric a brand of Lake People electronic GmbH
For years, Lake People electronic GmbH has been regarded as a proven expert in the field of professional studio solutions. With the Violectric brand, the company founded a new product line for consumer solutions. Lake People electronic GmbH itself is now part of cma audio GmbH.
Made in Germany” is the guiding principle of the company, which can already look back on a 35-year tradition. The entire development and production takes place in the manufacturing plant in Constance with the active participation of founder and mastermind Fried Reim, and even the suppliers are largely from Germany.
Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp – The little brother of the Violectric HPA V550 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp and Preamp
As already mentioned, the new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp is supposed to be a top class headphone amplifier. It is based on a circuit concept that was originally developed for the Violectric HPA V550 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp and Preamp.
The new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp can thus be regarded as the little brother of the reference solution, as the Constance-based company proudly states.
Suitable for a wide range of headphones
Once again, the focus of the developers was on realising a solution that is as flexible as possible. Specifically, the new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp should be able to be used with a variety of headphones.
The basis for this is a circuit concept that optimally supplies the most diverse drivers. This offers a high output voltage for high-impedance headphones on the one hand, and a high output power for low-impedance headphones and even magnetostats on the other. The popular pre-gain circuit is not missing either, as it allows the exact adjustment of the amplifier to the respective model used, so that nothing stands in the way of the perfect sound experience, according to the manufacturer’s promise.
In addition, they claim that an extremely low noise and a completely neutral reproduction result in a sound image that comes up with naturalness and authenticity. The uncompromising sound, as already mentioned in the introduction, should make Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp the first choice for audiophile listeners who want to get nothing less than the maximum out of their headphones.
More than just a headphone amplifier
Like its big brother, the “little one” is far more than just a headphone amplifier. The Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp also functions as a preamplifier.
The Violectric HPA V340 not only allows the connection of two unbalanced headphones via 6.3 mm stereo jacks, but also the control via a balanced four-pole XLR socket.
In addition, there are two unbalanced inputs designed as RCA sockets, as well as outputs in the form of a pair of unbalanced RCA sockets and a pair of XLR connectors for balanced components.
The Violectric HPA V340 can directly drive a pair of active loudspeaker systems or a power amplifier.
In addition to the aforementioned connections for headphones, the front panel has a rotary encoder for volume control, selector switches for the two inputs, and a selector switch for the operating mode headphone amplifier or preamplifier, as well as headphone amplifier and preamplifier. Status LEDs provide information about the selection made at any time.
The new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp should be available immediately from cma audio GmbH. The recommended retail price is stated at € 1,799.
Getting to the point
Once again, Lake People electronic GmbH is expanding the Violectric brand range with an outstanding headphone amplifier that can also function as a preamplifier. The new Violectric HPA V340 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp uses a circuit concept that already caused a sensation with the Violectric HPA V550 Premium Balanced Headphone Amp and Preamp.
