Phonitor x

The headphone amplifier with preamplifier

Enjoy music over headphones and over speakers equally excellently with the superior VOLTAiR technology – that’s why we developed Phonitor x.

For all headphones

The Phonitor x offers connections for standard headphones with jack plug and for balanced headphones a 4-pin XLR connector.

Thanks to the enormous output power of 18 watts, all headphones are driven effortlessly.

To the power amplifiers

or to the active loudspeakers you can use the balanced XLR- for long, and the RCA sockets for short cable runs.

Practical are the AMP CTL sockets to which power amplifiers with 12V trigger inputs can be connected to switch them on and off together with Phonitor x.

Milled from solid

is the big 45mm Volume control. Its mass together with the  motorized Alps RK27 “Big Blue” potentiometer enhances the “spoon in the honey” feeling even further.

The red marker LED makes the setting visible even in darkened environments.

Volume RC

The volume can be remote controlled with any infrared remote control, that the Phonitor x simply learns.

To do this, press the IR programming button and then the buttons for louder and quieter.

Source of joy

Up to six (6 !) stereo sources can be connected to Phonitor x:

XLR, RCA, USB, Coax, Optical and AES/EBU

Phonitor x accepts a large variety of audio connections. Balanced via XLR or unbalanced via RCA connectors.

With the optional DAC768xs, three additional digital sources can be added.

Good ol' times

Two mechanical VU meters visualize the input levels for the left and right audio channel.

Finding the middle

is not always easy. By our very nature, hearing can be leaning more to the left or more to the right. This is especially obvious when listening with headphones.

That’s why Phonitor x has the uniquely finely resolved laterality control. With it, the center can be found perfectly.

With the mode switch you can choose between stereo or mono playback. To the right, the laterality control is switched on.

The Revolution

in the headphone amplifier is the Phonitor Matrix, thanks to which you can listen to music through headphones as if you were listening through speakers. The tiring super stereo effect is a thing of the past.

Enjoy your music exactly the way it should be heard.
