To get the best results from headphones a dedicated headphone amplifier is required. Graham Slee has a range of headphone amplifiers for different applications and a version of his Solo amplifiers were chosen for BBC studios.
The Icon Audio HP8 MKII is in fact a miniaturised pure valve hi fi amplifier. We use a custom wound multi-tap output transformer which provides perfect matching to virtually any headphone load. We start with a substantial mains transformer with matching power supply and two output transformers. The HP8 MK II tops the scales at 7kg, giving you an idea of how much iron you get for your money!
