Arcam has always been known for producing class-leading integrated amplifiers, all of which featured excellent headphone stages. The rHead continues that tradition in the form of a dedicated, discrete analogue headphone amplifier with a small, solidly built unit designed to complement the audio system of any headphone lover.
The rHead is a true linear class A design, resulting in absolutely no crossover distortion for the purest sound. Extensive care has been taken to optimise the layout. The volume control is an ultra-linear analogue resistive ladder device, as used in the flagship A49.
The rHead is more than capable of driving the most demanding of headphones. Both RCA and XLR inputs (switchable) are available, as well as both 3.5 and 6.35mm sockets, allowing for ultimate headphone listening flexibility.
