SPL's Phonitor headphone amplifiers found a huge fan base among Hi-Fi enthusiasts. The Phonitor e comprises the most essential functions and features in a slim and beautiful housing.
The Phonitor e offers connections for headphone operated both balanced and unbalanced. With up to 3.7 W output power it delivers an impressive performance. The Phonitor Matrix is also part of the Phonitor e and it lets you experience music on headphones as if you are listening to speakers.
The Phonitor e was designed for those who are looking for a straightforward, powerful and excellent sounding amplifier for their headphones. The feature set is – compared to its bigger brother, the Phonitor x – reduced to the essentials.
Outputs: Phonitor e drives headphones operated both balanced and unbalanced. For the balanced operation, Phonitor e has an advanced dual power amp built-in which delivers twice the power of the standard 1/4" jack output. This tightens the bass response and makes the overall playback even more relaxed and transparent. The front houses a 4-pole XLR connector to connect the balanced headphone.
- Phonitor Matrix: The Phonitor-Matrix offers two presets. The Speaker Angle is fixed to the most common setting of 30° representing the ideal angle for a stereo speaker placement. For the Crossfeed adjustment there are two settings. Crossfeed adjust the so-called inter-aural level difference. The setting C1 has less crossfeed than C2.
- Remote Control: To control the Volume you can use any IR remote control. The cool part is that the Phonitor e learns your remote! Take the remote control of your CD player for instance. There are lots buttons and at least two you don't really use. Assign Volume Up and Volume Down to those buttons and let the Phonitor e learn them.
- Optional DAC: Phonitor e can be equipped with the DAC192 DA-converter. With it installed, the available inputs are expanded by USB, coaxial and optical digital stereo inputs. The DA converter supports sample rates up to 192 kHz with 24 bit and syncs automatically to the sample rate of the selected digital input.
