Headphone Amplifier

The popular Rhinelander headphone amplifier is based on the legendary Black Cube Linear by Lehmannaudio, which is used by well-known industry professionals such as A.J. van den Hul, Andreas Spreer (TACET) and Maarten de Boer (The Masters). Now you can experience a huge part of the Linear's transparency, tonal balance and micro-detail, and at only a fraction of the cost. The Rhinelander is placed in the highly-competitive sector of ambitioned, budget-conscious, audiophile listeners.

Moreover, with some mild tweaks the Rhinelander can also be used as a single source pre-amplifier, like the superior Linear model. The Rhinelander is equipped with two inputs and a relays source selection. If you don't need the second line input, you can reconfigure the input jack to a output. All you need to do is to replace two jumpers. 

Even with entry-level devices, Lehmannaudio puts a lot of effort into details.

  • Discrete Zero Global Feedback output stage with high quiescent current ready to drive most headphones or long cable runs 
  • Audiophile voltage amplifier stage
