Woodland Hills, CA (September 9, 2011)–Fostex has begun shipping its HP-P1 headphone amp and DAC (digital-to-analog converter).
The company claims that the HP-P1 is the world’s first portable headphone amplifier with D/A conversion that receives digital audio signal directly from an iPhone/iPod, then converts to analog audio via high-resolution, 32-bit DAC. The analog signal is reportedly further enhanced via a precision, audiophile-quality headphone amplifier.
Additional features include a 3-step, gain-optimization switch to accommodate all types of headphones; built-in S/PDIF digital out; twin digital filters; and an aluminum alloy chassis.
