DHA V226

Headphone amplifier and
D/A converter

The Violectric DHA V226 is a new addition to the Violectric range with powerful D/A converter, strong balanced headphone amplifier and preamplifier function.

The D/A converter is a new development with the Cirrus converter CS43131. This 32-bit converter offers a typical dynamic range of 130 dB with a THD+N of -115 dB. It supports PCM signals up to 32 bit and 384 kHz and DSD 256.

The headphone amplifier is a progression of the multiple test winners HPA V200, V280 and V281. It offers the incomparable natural and pleasant sound that made its predecessors famous.

The roots of the headphone amplifier circuit are found in the highly acclaimed and award-winning predecessors V200, V280 and V281. It offers the incomparable natural and pleasant sound that made its predecessors famous.

The DHA V226 is a true powerhouse of an amplifier. With its unparalleled technology and one of the most powerful headphone amplifiers on the market today, this unit will not disappoint!

Lowest noise

Through a very small internal gain. This makes the self-noise of the amplifiers inaudible.

High output power

Through powerful amplifiers that can deliver far more power than even the most demanding headphones need. Therefore, ideally suited for headphones with low impedances and also magnetostats.

High output voltage

Through 50 volts internal operating voltage. Therefore, ideally suited for high-impedance headphones.

High damping factor

Through lowest output impedance. Therefore, ideally suited to control even the most difficult headphones without Beeeinflussung with a guarantee of uncompromising frequency response.
