Key Features

  • 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution playback from iPhone and other iOS devices (with no Apple Camera Connection Kit needed when using the TEAC HR Audio Player for iOS high-resolution audio playback app)

The HA-P50 is constructed with a durable, compact aluminum alloy body and high quality internal circuity to bring out the best with connected headphones.  
Using the USB interface, the HA-P50 can extract the digital audio signals from your source device, whether iOS, Android, PC/Mac and process it via its on-board DAC.   
The HA-P50 can also be used with the free TEAC HR Audio Player app for high-resolution 24bit/96kHz audio playback for iPhones and other iOS-based devices.  Equipped with a BurrBrown PCM5102 digital-to-analog converter, the HA-P50 is capable of making the most of high resolution playback.   
A high/low gain selector enables the output gain to be precisely matched to the impedance of the headphone being used, an indispensible feature for consumers who use top quality high-impedance headphones (the high-output  2 x 160mW power amplifier successfully drives 600ohm headphones at full power)
The HA-P50 is equipped with a combined optical digital input and analog AUDIO IN terminal that self-detects incoming signals.

The new TEAC HA-P50 is currently available at a MSRP of: $299.99 U.S.  Look for more information at:
