Aachen, Germany (October 26, 2015)—KLANG has started shipping the first batch of its new KLANG:quelle Dante headphone amp.
KLANG:quelle receives eight channels via Dante and provides four individual stereo headphone outputs. It is said by the manufacturer to be the world’s first low latency multichannel Dante headphone amp with sampling rates up to 192 kHz, while being able to be connected to any computer or Dante enabled device with nothing more than a network cable.
The output circuits are carefully designed to connect to any kind of in-ears or heapdhones and drive them with highest clarity. Packed with features like Power over Ethernet (PoE), volume control and gain preselection for each output, it is intended for any technician and engineer on stage, in the studio or in a rehearsal room to quickly integrate reliable high-end headphone outputs.
”We had been working hard on our 3D in-ear monitoring technology, when we realized that there is no solution to quickly connecting high quality headphones to a Dante network with only one device,“ explains KLANG‘s founder Pascal Dietrich. KLANG:technologies GmbH was founded in 2014 in Aachen, Germany by audio experts, electrical engineers and musicians from RWTH Aachen University.
“The high-end audiophile headphone circuitry was already incorporated in our prototypes for the light weight 3D in-ear mixer KLANG:vier. We just had to bring everything into a compact and versatile device.“
