HiFiMAN, a leading designer/manufacturer of high performance headphones, amplifiers and portable audio products, announced their newest headphone amplifier, the EF100. The new compact headphone amplifier is a hybrid design, which combines tube and solid state within a moderately priced amplifier. The EF100 is designed to drive a broad array of high performance headphones.
The EF100 is both a powerful hybrid headphone amplifier and integrated amplifier. A compact chasis contains three independent amplifier sections: a vacuum tube input stage works as a shared preamp, a Class AB headphone amplifier, and a Class T speaker power amplifier. The result is a warm, smooth, detailed and musical performance.
