HiFi & Music Source

EarMen’s composite op-amp architecture delivers excellent characteristics both from DC and AC power sources along with several advantages over traditional amplification styles.

While many power amps utilise thermal feedback loops, the self heating nature of these loops can impose errors in audio especially when driving heavier loads.

Evolving the design traits of former EarMen amp models, CH-Amp offers two unique features to offer even more functionally to the audiophile listening experience. A dedicated preamp output is available for integration into a variety of home stereo setups, while a switchable Gain function is also available via the front panel.

Unique Features
CH-Amp from EarMen including separate powersupply module

By enabling Gain mode, users can wield better control over both output and impedance levels. This makes accommodating headphones with particularly low or high sensitivity an easy tweak.

Composite Topology

Composite circuitry keenly avoids this issue, offering a better DC output offset to maintain performance even with excess power loads by improving overall circuitry performance.
