SPL Phonitor One D Headphone Monitoring Amplifier with D/A Converter

Audiophile headphone amplifier with innovative Phonitor Matri, outstanding sound quality and 768kHz/32-bit DA-converter

MFR# SPLPHON1-D

Product Description

The SPL Phonitor One D is an audiophile headphone amplifier with innovative Phonitor Matrix, 32-bit DA-converter and outstanding sound quality. To get such a sound quality, you need experience and technical finesse. SPL have incorporated both into the Series One.

PREAMP STAGE

Two Burr-Brown OPA 2134 SoundPlus operational amplifiers provide the pre-amplification. These are specially designed for audiophile circuits and are characterized by extremely low noise and minimal distortion of only 0.00008%. Thanks to a true FET stage, the OPA 2134 achieves a slew rate of 20V/µs, making it a high-speed operational amplifier. This has an immediate positive effect on the liveliness of the playback.

In addition, low capacitance film capacitors are installed in the signal path as bypass capacitors of the coupling capacitors, which ensures a more precise transmission of the high-frequency signal components. The excellent Panasonic ‘Electric Double Layer’ gold electrolytic capacitors are used as coupling capacitors. They offer the highest storage capacity of all capacitor technologies.

Power Amplifier

The output stage of the headphone amplifier is designed as a push-pull amplifier in class AB mode. The bipolar transistors share the amplification of the positive and negative half-waves, which produces a higher gain and a higher output voltage than in Class A operation, where only one transistor amplifies both half-waves. The output stage transistors are thermally coupled and thus run particularly coherently, which contributes to a consistent and stable sound image. The power supply has a buffer circuit with low source resistance, ensuring generous current reserves even when operating low-impedance headphones.

Stereo Inputs

Two analog stereo inputs and one digital USB input can be connected to Phonitor One d. The computer, tablet or phone are preferably connected via USB. Other players such as a CD player, mixer, synthesizer or an analog tape machine / tape deck can be connected to the analog line inputs either balanced (TRS jacks) or unbalanced (RCA).

32-Bit DA-Converter

The converter chip used is the Premium AK4490, a new generation of premium 32-bit DACs equipped with AKM’s Velvet Sound. This technology makes the finest details audible thanks to its low-distortion architecture. It supports sampling frequencies up to 768 kHz PCM (16x CD resolution) and DSD (Direct Stream Digital) playback up to DSD4 or DSD256 (11.2 MHz) resolution. This qualifies the Phonitor One d for the currently highest resolution audio playback.

The USB connection is Class Compliant. This means that all Mac computers and iOS devices like iPads and iPhones can use the full performance bandwidth of the DA-converter without driver installation. iOS devices require the camera adapter. For Windows a driver is required, which you can download at the bottom of this page.

Line Out

The selected input signal is output unchanged at the line out. This allows Phonitor One d to be looped between devices without “losing” an output connection. If, for example, several people are to listen in via headphones, a headphone amplifier can simply be connected to the Line Out.

But you can also record the signal analog or send it to a mixer for further processing. Thus, the Phonitor One d can also be used as a state-of-the-art DA-converter, which recommends it for a series of other tasks.

Power Supply

Good sound always starts with the power supply. This is where you lay the foundation for the performance of the entire device. Although SPL supply a 12 V plug-in power supply unit, the secondary power supply inside generates a voltage level of ±17 Volts for the analog audio sections with which professional levels of up to +22.5 dB can be achieved!

An elaborate low-drop operating voltage regulation provides more “juice” and regulates cleanly even when the maximum operation voltage is reached. The Phonitor One delivers full power when used with the included 1.5 A power supply. Only use the 12 V plug-in power supply unit within the scope of delivery. The ON-switch puts the Phonitor One into operation.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
