Description

Good sound comes from good electronic components
The pre-stage tube uses the RCA metal encapsulation tube 6SH7 in the 1940s, the customized Lundahl headphone amplifier transformer, the original custom-made Noratel power transformer. The coupling capacitor uses the Mundorf MCap Supreme Silver Oil capacitor, the audio grade Kiwame resistor is used, and finally all the signal switches and the volume control encoder are all made of ALPS products.

ES9038pro decoder chip
ESS company decoder chip ES9038PRO, ultra low distortion, high signal to noise ratio, large output current. The system clock uses an ultra-low phase jitter US Sitime active quartz crystal with a phase jitter of less than 0.5px. Regardless of the format of the LD A1, the sampling frequency is high, which ensures smooth and phase-locked decoding.

2A3 ultra low distortion amp
LD A1 with American RCA antique tube 6SH7 + Svallock JJ 2A3 single-ended pure class A ultra-low distortion headphone amplifier, the output power reaches 5W rms, the overall sound stage, positioning, airness are unforgettable.

The LD A1’s full-range soundstage is excellent and its bass response is also excellent, listening to any music will give you a refreshing and transparent feeling.

Note: We also have the cheaper version of this all in one machine, instead of Lundahl output transformer, we use the z11 core from Japan and custom build the transformer in China. On top of that, we added bluetooth feature in the cheaper version so it’s more versatile. If anyone is interested in this product, please email us and let us know.
