A 20 Premium Headphone Amplifier

The Beyerdynamic A20 Headphone Amplifier Offers an Incredible Listening Experience

With the A 20 you will rediscover your dynamic headphones. This new headphone amplifier from beyerdynamic is perfect for all headphone applications and provides dual outputs for shared listening with a partner.



SUPERIOR SOUND

The Beyerdynamic A20 Headphone Amplifier Offers an Incredible Listening Experience

The circuit of the A20 is designed based on our legendary A 1 reference headphone amplifier. The discrete output stage provides plenty of power even for high-impedance headphones while the dynamic, open and precise sound sets the A 20 apart from what can be found in the normal output stages of regular amplifiers or receivers. This is confirmed by its first-class circuitry and excellent technical specifications that provide a balanced sound for long periods of comfortable listening.



HIGH BUILD-QUALITY AND NICE LOOKS

The Beyerdynamic A20 Headphone Amplifier Offers an Incredible Listening Experience

Made of brushed aluminum, the housing of the A 20 is especially solid and resonance-free. Due to the innovative chassis design, no screws are visible on the external surfaces. Equipped with an original ALPS potentiometer for variable volume control, a knob turned from solid aluminum completes the attractive yet robust look of this amplifier.



SIMPLE AND FLEXIBLE

The Beyerdynamic A20 Headphone Amplifier Offers an Incredible Listening Experience

With a high-gain RCA input, the A 20 works easily with most sources. The input signal can be looped through and is entirely free from signal-loss thanks to the hard-wired RCA output. Due to the built-in power supply, which is connected via a detachable power cord (supplied), no external power supply is needed avoiding disturbing background noise. Thanks to the dual headphone jacks on the front, two people can listen to the A 20 together without an adapter cable.



General Features:

  • Beyerdynamic A20 Premium Headphone Desktop Amplifier
  • Dual 1/4 Inch headphone jacks on the front allows two people to listen without an adapter cable
  • RCA input can be easily daisy-chained without loss to run a second Amp for twice the power

  • Built-in wide-range switched-mode power supply for improved power use and a steady output
  • Brushed aluminum, all-metal housing with no visible screws makes this a beautiful sleek looking desktop Amplifier as impressive to look at as it sounds
  • The wide frequency range (10 Hz - 100 kHz) and high max power output (170 mW, 250 Ohms) provide a dynamic, open and precise sound
  • Provides a sufficient amount of power for most any high-impedance audiophile headphones on the market

Headphone Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Style
Some headphone amplifiers are designed to be portable and others are meant to be placed on a desk. This will tell you what style of amplifier this item is.
Desktop
Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC)
A Digital-to-Analog converter (also known as a DAC) converts a digital audio signal into an analog signal. This is especially helpful for listen to music from digital sources, such as iPods and smart phones.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the amplifier will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 100,000 Hz
Input Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifiers receive an input audio signal.
Stereo RCA
Input Impedance
This is the input impedance of the headphone amplifier.
25,000 ohms
Output Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifier will output the audio signal.
1/4" Plug
Number of Outputs
Some headphone amplifiers have a built-in splitter so multiple pairs of headphones can be connected to it. The number specified here is the number of headphones that can be connected to the amplifier.
2
Output Power
This is the output wattage of the headphone amplifier. It is measured in mW.
100mW @ 600 ohms mW
Output Impedance
This is the output impedance of the headphone amplifier.
100 ohms
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
6.46"
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
2.17"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.

Power & Sound

April 15, 2015

This is a very nice little amp. It has has plenty of power to drive my HD800, LCDX, and others. It sounds great: improves bass quality (tighter and little stronger), slightly attenuates upper range highs. There's not much too it so its easy to use. It's a well built and has a nice industrial look. For the price its worth the money.

April 15, 2016

This desktop headphone amp is very solidly built, it weighs nearly 4 pounds and feels just like a solid chunk of metal. It is of course not portable and needs to be connected to your AC plug. It is just plain terrific in driving medium-impedance headphones such as my 250 Ohm Beyerdynamic DT1770 for which it makes a natural partner. I am using it with a Chord Mojo DAC set to fixed line level out at 3 volts and this configuration offers a highly immersive listening experience with a very dynamic and clearly delineated soundstage as it seems to tighten up the sound while preserving micro- and macro-dynamics. The improvement over driving the headphones directly by the DAC is real and obvious but not strictly necessary, think of it as icing on the cake – for perfectionists only. A power rating of only 170mW (when some other brands desktop amps offer a full watt or two) may seem week on paper but it absolutely plays loud enough and with sufficient authority -- certainly more than the typical USB or battery-driven dac/amp can provide. Highly recommended.

Rock Solid

This amp is rock solid. The sound it delivers is really clean and doesn't change the characteristics of the source much. It slightly takes the edge of highs and adds just a touch more bass. It isn't the most powerful amp for use with headphones like Audeze LCD-3 it is enough. It's a great combo with nice DAC.
