Due to circumstances relating to this product, it is only available in the UK to special order, which means it is not stocked as standard in our warehouse. A special order item will be placed on order with the relevant manufacturer during our next scheduled Purchase Order. As we forecast orders up to two months ahead of time with some suppliers, this does not mean the item will automatically be included on the next shipment we receive. It also does not mean that the item will immediately be placed on order with the supplier, as we group special orders together for logistical purposes. Therefore, we estimate lead times on most special order items of 8 – 12 weeks.

Headphone Amplifier

For those who are well acquainted with the ways of proper headphone listening, Lehmann Audio's 'Linear' headphone amplifier is a household name. The Linear has already enchanted thousands of music lovers all over the world, and is also a firm favourite with industrial and professional customers as well. From the WDR Studios to Sennheiser headphones, the Linear is a highly valued product; it is even often used as the reference unit in tests for hi-fi and studio magazines worldwide.

Representing various technical improvements on the much-loved standard Linear model, the new Linear SE comes factory-equipped with Mundorf capacitors (both in the power supply and signal path), vibration absorbing SSC feet, an AHP fuse and Mogami cables inside.

The Linear SE lets you experience music through your headphones in a whole new way. Suddenly, details that had never before manifest themselves will appear; and the true intention of the original recording artists and producers will be unveiled. You will hear the music as a complete artwork, and plunge deep into the realm of individual sounds.

Outwardly the new Lehmann Audio flagship headphone amplifier also stands above its kin in a dramatic way. The housing of the Linear SE (created by product designer Guido Gutenstein) is available in a variety of finishes - with different fascias and stylish wood-effect casings available.
