Add Richness to Your Audio Chain

Gustard is known for crafting impressive desktop audio units with an eye toward design and an ear toward clean, detailed response. The Gustard H16 Balanced Headphone Pre-Amplifier is an excellent edition to your DAC or amp setup because it delivers solid processing and headroom to spare. Providing balanced output with a handling of up to 600 ohms, it gives plenty of space to work, no matter what headphones you’re using. The up to 120-decibel signal-to-noise ratio is impressively clean, while the 20 hertz to 80 kilohertz frequency ranges ensures that that coverage extends to the full audio spectrum—including ultrasonic frequencies. Combine all of this with a solid build quality, well-rounded input/output options, and an impressively low 0.0004-percent total harmonic distortion, and it’s clear that the H16 will bring balance and richness to virtually any audio setup.
