An affordable piece of hardware to run 250 Ohm headphones smoothly. Also tons of inputs and outputs (not tested, used only USB for now).

Kopfhörerverstärker und sehr viel mehr
S.Merk, 01.02.2019
Digitalconverter, USB-Interface mit analogem und Digitaleingang, HiFi-Vorverstärker und das alles in vergleichsweise hoher Qualität. Besonders dabei ist, dass die hinteren Ausgänge abschalten, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingesteckt wird und auch über den Lautstärkeregler angepasst werden. Daher taugt das solide und schicke Gerät als HiFi-Vorverstärker und das in einer erstaunlich guten Qualität. Ein Computer für die digitale Musiksammlung, ein Internet-Radio über den optischen Eingang und ein Plattenspieler an die Cinch-Eingänge verkabelt und man hat alles, was man braucht. Einzig wären symmetrische Ausgänge aus Musikersicht schön, um das Gerät nicht per Adapter an Abhörmonitore anschließen zu müssen.

Der Kopfhörerausgang ist kräftig, neigt aber bei schon unangenehmer Lautstärke zu zerren. Die Abbildung ist sehr neutral, den Beyerdynamic T 5 p und AKG K-702 konnte er problemlos antreiben. Die integrierten Wandler unterstützen kein ASIO, lassen sich aber per VASAPI mit hochauflösender Musik befüttern. Die Filter klingen nicht zu schwammig und es macht wirklich Spaß, der Musik über den Kopfhörer zu lauschen. Meinen Lehmannaudio Linear habe ich leider nicht mehr, jedoch würde ich aus der Erinnerung meinen, dass der Preisunterschied sich nicht im Klang wiederspiegelt. Diesen hatte ich damals mit dem Sennheiser HD 800 mit der Kopfhörerbuchse der Vorstufe verglichen, die Unterschiede waren absolut marginal. Hier gefällt mir ebenfalls der Klang über den HAD-1 etwas besser, was man bei dem Preis nicht vermutet. Die Optik und die hinterleuchteten Tasten sind retro und gefallen mir ebenfalls, insgesamt ein schönes Gerät. Wenn meine Vorstufe mal nicht mehr will, habe ich bereits einen Ersatz gefunden.

Un bel ampli casque 24/96
Foxthree57, 17.11.2018
Je l'utilise pour écouter Qobuz en streaming 24/96 depuis un MacBook Pro avec des casques Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro / DT 990 Pro (les deux en 250 ohms).
Installation plug & play sans pilote, tout de suite reconnu par le Mac. Son puissant, sans coloration; en tout cas une neutralité de timbre et de rendu qui me convient.
Il rate une 5ème étoile pour les boutons en plastique translucide qui ont un peu de jeu (je pinaille) et ne sont pas à la hauteur de la qualité de fabrication vraiment trés bonne de ce produit, d'autant plus pour le prix proposé.

Swissonic HAD-1, an alternative to SMSL M3 in EU?
M00ndancer, 12.02.2019
I've been looking for a DAC/AMP to replace my really, really old Creative DDTS-30 (Google it)

The sound out of it is worse than the analogue output on the Chromecast Audio but superior to the sound from my onboard sound or the Asus DGX.

I also wanted a Toslink in and out if possible or an RCA out (line out)

My budget was kind of tight as well, around ?150 including taxes.

First I want to make this disclaimer: I'm not an audiophile, nor have I access to high-end equipment.

The HAD-1 also have RCA in and out. The USB to Optical out is bus powered, so I can use the optical out even when the amp is powered off.

Sound improvements? Compared to the CCA analogue output, slight improvement. I even tried to use the CCA as an analogue source but that was worse than using the CCA as a digital transport.

One big difference is the sound from the computer with Youtube as source. It has improved but I also can hear the difference between the Opus 251 160 Kbit compressed audio and the 256-320 kbit audio from the CCA playing the same song in Google Music, something I couldn't hear with the DDTS-30. It sounds like there is a bigger sound stage and better imaging. Less "fog" in the sound with better bass control. It is a lot harder to listen to music on Youtube with a better DAC/amp. :)

I was initially trying to get a Fulla 2 or the SMSL M3 but the in and outputs of the HAD-1 suited my use case better.

Equipment used:

Sony MDR-1a

Swissonic HAD-1 (Thomann in-house brand)

ChromeCast Audio
