Benefits of MSB Technology The Reference Headphone Amplifier:
Designed for dynamic headphones, the Reference Headphone Amp is a fully balanced amplifier. Boasting 139dB of dynamic range, the amp works in tandem with the Reference and Select DAC, allowing the music to come to life in vibrant and unforgettable new ways.
CNC billet chassis
Starting with a 65lb plate of raw aluminum, material is machined in our own in-house CNC shop. After more than four hours of machining, 60% of the aluminum is removed, resulting in a significantly lighter, more contoured product with the best anodized finishes on the market.
Each amplifier is equipped with three 4-pin XLR outputs, designed for a shared listening experience.
A rear-facing headphone jack allows for a cleaner system aesthetic—there aren’t any dangling cables interfering with a cleanly assembled system. The noise floor is reduced with an isolated transformer and grounding scheme. 12 Volt triggers allow remote control over the system power.
If you’re sharing the headphones with a two-channel system, use our internal bypass we’ve installed directly into the amp. Simply turn off the unit for the signal to be sent to your other system.
Elegant yet commanding, our finishes are available in a matte silver or matte black anodize. Our products include our in-house designed viton feet, but any audiophile M6X1 foot can be installed to personalize your system.
The 12V Trigger Adapter
The 12V trigger adapter provides a multitude of ways for connecting your MSB product with other 12V trigger systems.
