DACS - HeadLite 3+

DACS - Clarity HeadLite 3+

4 channel Headphone Amplifier
with +Power
DACS’ latest HeadLite3+ brings a new twist to DACS’s famed studio headphone amplifier. The technology on display in todays modern high-end headphones means that a huge amount of power is required to drive them efficiently. DACS designed the +Power plug in module which delivers all the ultra-clean drive which most modern headphones require. Alongside powering low impedance planar magnetic headphones, it’s capable of driving numerous sets of standard headphones with staggering performance.

Clarity and Sound QualityWhatever the headphone task the quality of the end-product begins with what the artist hears. Accurate, clear and detailed reproduction of the whole audible frequency range is essential; any shortcomings will inevitably affect both the overdub and the overview. HeadLite 3+ maintains the HeadLite series’ worldwide reputation for Clarity and detail.

Optimum DriveThe metering on the four busses that feed the amplifiers allows you to set the input levels to optimum, making sure the input to the amplifier gives the best output to headphones.

DACS - Clarity HeadLite 3+

plentiful power on hand!+Power is an analogue plug-in module that provides all the ultra-clean drive the most power-hungry headphones need. Fitted as standard in Channel 1, +Power can be added to the other channels either at the time of ordering or retrofitted later.

Power and driveAmplifier power is not just about level (sound pressure level) it is about clean level (sonically pure level). A cheap headphone amplifier when pushed beyond its narrow limits can begin to distort before your headphones or your ears. This not only compromises the sound, but it can also damage your hearing. A headphone amp which has enough power should be `cruising’ for the whole of its useable range, the output signal always as clean as the technical specifications indicate it should be.

The power of the output on the standard channels is more than sufficient to drive virtually any headphone of any impedance clean and loud. +Power provides drive to spare for taking low-impedance high-power headphones to the peak of their performance. It will also allow the driving of multiple higher impedance phones.

Why Choose The 'Clarity HeadLite 3+'?

FlexibilityIn a studio you might use different headphones for different listeners providing different material. A good headphone amplifier will provide multiple outputs with individual amplifiers, each able to drive any impedance of headphone with selected inputs. In the HeadLite 3+ this is provided by four bussed inputs selectable in combination – inputs A, B, C and D; for L and R respectively in the headphones, select AB, AA, BB, CD, CC or DD – on each of the four stereo output amplifiers.

DesignHeadLite 3+, like all DACS products, was designed with feedback from working engineers and musicians feeding their industrious boffins with ideas. The amplifier produces very low distortion and has an extended and flat frequency range; it scores top marks in Clarity and Sound Quality, Power and Drive, and Flexibility. As one user said of the original HeadLite “It’s ideal.”

TechnicalOutputs for each channel appear on both the front and rear of the unit and can drive long audio lines to remote headphone outlets such as in vocal booths or over-dub rooms. Users can select from the four inputs (A, B, C and D) to hear A and B, or C and D as stereo, and A, B, C or D as mono. This means you can send two different stereo submixes to the HeadLite 3+ from the mixer or your DAW, or 4 mono mixes or a combination.
