A very reasonably priced tube headphone amplifier. Great sound and build quality. Tube rolling higly recommended - you can get even better sound with various tubes!

"The HA-1A may be the best thing that's ever happened to headphones...champagne sound for beer-budget bucks." ????Sam Tellig, Stereophile , June 2006

The Cayin HA-1A is a fully adjustable high quality audiophile tube Headphone Amplifier.

This is one seriously heavy-duty piece of gear. We're not kidding. It weighs 15 ? pounds!! It's made from ultra-high-quality parts. It looks stunning especially for a headphone amp. The sound is so typically Cayin that being natural and musically delicate without excessive warmth or detail. In other words: just right. It's got an impedance selector switch that ranges from 6 to 300 ohms, so that it interfaces perfectly with any pair of headphones.

And, with an efficient pair of bookshelf speakers, the HA-1A can actually serve as a very effective integrated amp. How's that for versatility?

We dare you to find a head amp for under $1,000 that's even in the same league as this! Seriously!
