The rHead is a true direct class A design, resulting in absolutely no crossover distortion for the purest sound. Extensive care has actually been taken to optimise the layout and areas like several ultra-low noise power products and a totally direct coupled signal course make a huge difference. Also, the volume control is an ultra-linear analogue resistive ladder device, as used in the flagship A49, which gets rid of tracking errors which can be discovered in typical potentiometer-based volume controls. Extensive protection systems prevent damage to the rHead while not interfering in any way with the ultimate recreation of the sound - the rHead sounds remarkably natural and completely engaging and reveals the real character of any music that is played through it. The rHead is more than capable of driving the most demanding of headphones. Both RCA and XLR inputs (switchable) are offered, along with both 3.5 and 6.35 mm sockets, permitting ultimate headphone listening versatility.
