NEW: dCS Lina Deep Dive, Part 1: Drive -- An in-depth look at the design of the Lina Headphone Amplifier, exploring how dCS' engineers set out to create a versatile amp that can drive even the most demanding headphones to their full potential.
Whether you’re listening with custom IEMs or reference-level over-ears, the Lina Headphone Amplifier will ensure you experience the full impact of your chosen headphones, and your music. With its ultra-low output impedance, it confidently drives a vast range of designs, and adapts to suit their unique requirements and characteristics for optimal performance.
dCS’s first ever standalone amplifier, its design builds on learnings gained from their experience working at the forefront of audio design and engineering, and developing a custom Class A headphone amplifier for the award-winning dCS Bartok Headphone DAC. Following the Bartok’s release, dCS set out to further their work in headphone amplification, and engineer a standalone component that could be used separately or as part of a complete dCS headfi system.
Through exhaustive development, extensive testing, and creative thinking, dCS developed an all-new design that combines tried and tested features with novel innovations engineered to further enhance performance and efficiency.
The result is an exemplary headphone amplifier that delivers plenty of power and grip, while maintaining complete neutrality. With its low noise floor, wide dynamic range and excellent linearity, it delivers a compelling, dynamic experience that reveals the true sound and character of your music and headphones.
