Flagship Amplification for Your Finest Headphones

At the top of Topping’s highly regarded A-series, the A90 is a headphone amplifier with few rivals. Capable of functioning as both a headphone amp and a preamp, this flagship unit is outfitted with NFCA (Nested Feedback Composite Amplifier) modules, which work together with ultra-high-gain feedback technology for impressive AC and DC control. Its high-current capabilities make it a great choice for low-impedance headphones, while its 145-decibel dynamic range and 0.2uV noise rating are ideal for more sensitive IEMs. Other notable specs include an output impedance less than 0.1 ohms, a THD+N rating less than 0.00006 percent, and a two-channel 7,200-milliwatt maximum power output. Choose from three gain settings and a 4-pin XLR, 4.4-millimeter balanced, or 6.35-millimeter single-ended port. Switch to preamp mode and connect the A90 to a power amp or DAC such as the D90 to drive active speakers.

Note: This run is limited to the A90 in black with a US plug.

No, the A30Pro is when it detects 250 ohm or higher, but the A90 isn't. It runs really cool compared to a class A. Lightly warm to the touch but barely noticeable.Read More
