Musical Fidelity MX-HPA 1.8W Headphone Amplifier, Black MUFIMXHPABK

The MX-HPA is a fully balanced ultra performance headphone amp.Years of experience in making high quality headphone amps have been distilled into the design of the MX-HPA. As a result, this fully-balanced headphone amp offers an awe-inspiring listening experience.The MX-HPA's technical performance is stunning. Typically, distortion from 20 Hz to 40... morekHz is less than 0.005%. Signal-to-noise ratio is better than 120dB ('A' weighted). Frequency response is ruler flat from 10 Hz to 20 kHz (-0.1dB).The MX-HPA is capable of a short-term peak of 10 watts (for one cycle) and has two gain positions: 18dB (8X) and 24dB (15X). Inputs are either balanced or single-ended. The MX-HPA will automatically convert single-ended inputs to balanced. The MX-HPA is genuinely fully balanced from beginning to end.Note: Not available in all countries

Master of one

Many modern headphone amplifiers have become jack-of-all-trades. Here you have a built-in DAC, and a couple of additional inputs, and line outputs, and everything else. In turn, the British from Musical Fidelity for a long time, by trial and error, went to their own formula for an perfect amplifier. And you know what? Their MX-HPA model looks quite old school (albeit quite compact in size) and is actually a master of one thing. That is, it is a headphone amplifier and nothing else.

Balanced class A amplifier

The manufacturer reports extremely sparingly about the internal structure of the MX-HPA: the heart of the device is a fully balanced class A amplifier with a switchable gain of 8 or 15 times, a switching power supply is mounted on a separate printed circuit board to reduce interference. The amplifier itself is suitable for any dynamic headphones, regardless of their impedance. There are two headphone outputs. Moreover, the connection of the second pair does not affect the sound of the first. Well, the claimed characteristics are impressive: especially the signal-to-noise ratio (no worse than 120 dB) and the harmonic distortion coefficient (< 0.005%). However, what is more important is not how it looks on paper, but how it sounds in reality.

Wins back every penny

Paired with Sennheiser HD 650 Musical Fidelity MX-HPA headphones, you get the most detailed and well-balanced sound with a well-crafted panorama. You don't just hear the music, you can easily discern the smallest nuances of each instrument's sound. This is especially cool on old recordings of the 50s and 60s, on which it is perfectly clear in which corner of the recording room the drummer was, and where the trumpeters were standing. Separately, I would like to praise the quality of the bass in this bunch: it is warm, and soft, and assertive, and at the same time unobtrusive. Let this be a rather controversial characteristic, but it is she who comes to mind while listening.

In general, MX-HPA wins back every penny spent and even more. And thanks to its simplicity and compact size, it can be an perfect amplifier for those who do not need fancy models from Unison Research or AudioValve.
