Linear II info sheet

Everything which has made the Linear headphone amplifier a legend already since 2004, has now become even better: the Linear II lifts the qualities of our reference model to a new standard.

Experience detailed lucidity when playing your music, effortless lightness even with high signal levels and the low-artefact reproduction of complex music pieces. The Linear II redefines vividness in the reproduction completely. That way you can enjoy even the longest listening sessions without fatigue and with greatest pleasure.

Powerful, spirited, sovereign

In connection with the elaborately designed pc board in Low-Z copper technology the powerful class-A output stage plays even more dynamically and takes you a big step closer to the music. Mundorf capacitors in the power supply and in the signal path deliver an impressive room imaging and transient response. 3S device feet ensure maximum mechanical quietness for the Linear II.

Not only while enjoying music with one or two headphones, but also when connected to active speakers or a power amplifier, the Linear II delivers its ultimate performance. Allow yourself to be surprised by a punchy, authentic sound which is unique for a device of this size!
