Heed Audio Canalot Headphone Amplifier

  • The Canalot is akin to a nice black brick on steroids. The classic design of Heed Modular devices meets the high-tech solutions of the digital world and in addition, their unique speaker driving system. If you are not into the many-box hi-fi racks or space-eating speakers and amplifiers, Canalot provides a nice alternative.

    Like the Canamp, this is also a two-stage amplifier, and has a pure class-A output stage as well. But similarities end here. Canalot is a rare piece among the headphone amplifiers with its RC-coupled output. It almost works like Heed's  Transcap-technology amplifiers, conveying all of their benefits. Of course, the power delivery system is tuned to the lower demands of the headphones.

    Nice connectivity is always a pleasure. The Canalot can utilize Heed Audio's DAC and USB cards, and can work like a 192 kHz / 24 bit capable digital-analog-converter with either a computer or any S/PDIF-output sources.

    For a nice and smooth sound the Canalot has a regulated power supply. It works well with the supplied outboard PSU, but of course, there is always an upgrade option. Q-PSU is the next step up with its generously sized linear, regulated power rails.
