EarMen CH-Amp is a fully Balanced Headphone Amplifier which means that the balanced outputs from the source go to the output intact, only amplified. From the Single-end input, the signals are converted to balanced without phase shift (phase imbalance), so that the obtained + and - signals are perfectly in phase. In this way we remove unwanted forests and prevent them from being added inside the device.
Composite Amplifier Topology
A Composite Amplifier Topology is implemented in the CH-Amp. Composite op-amp brings the best of both worlds with excellent DC and AC characteristics. These amplifiers offer several advantages over other types of amplifiers.
Power amplifiers typically use thermal feedback loops, thus causing serious errors while driving heavy loads. These errors occur due to self-heating. The use of the composite can remove such errors and improves the performance of the circuitry. The composite amplifiers also offer better DC output-offset. The excess of the load placed on the output transistors does not affect offset voltage.
CH-Amp is born from a full block aluminum chassis, which makes it extremely durable and robust. Compact design makes it fitting to any environment, any system or home. The PCB is embedded in a solid aluminum housing, giving the board greater protection inside the housing and additional insulation from external influences
We used WIMA capacitors as well as audio electrolytes in combination with MELF low noise resistors and SoundPlus OPA1642 operational amplifiers which proved to be great for getting neutral sound. EarMen CH-Amp has excellent characteristics, very low signal-to-noise ratio, and THD, excellent frequency response and a lot of power where the characteristics of the device are changed very little even at high loads.
EarMen CH-Amp have two important features: preamp outs and a gain switch. CH-Amp has balanced and single-ended preamp outputs, so you can connect to powered monitors for a complete system . The gain switch gives you better control of both output level and impedance, for better matching to your headphones.
Linear Power Supply
With the CH-Amp you also get linear low noise power supplies that are made without compromise.
It is made only for the needs of our devices in order to get the best characteristics and efficiency and is specially designed to exceed your expectations. It also has protection against current overload, short circuit and thermal overload according to the highest safety standards.
