Despite all the down-to-earthness of an entry-level model – this ambitious headphone amplifier will open up a whole new world of musical enjoyment to you. The Rhinelander stands fully in the high-end tradition of the Lehmannaudio products. With its superior set of features it shows a marked contrast to other devices in its price class.
The sonic kinship with the Linear reference device is due to the specially selected, high-grade components and sophisticated circuit design. The Rhinelander has a well dimensioned, discrete class A solid-state output stage with no overall negative feedback, which holds sufficient power reserves available for most common headphones and also gives your favourite sounds an impressive clarity.
An impressive all-rounder
Moreover, our entry-level model is equipped with plenty of other audiophile components: for instance, we have chosen low-loss MKP capacitors for the audio path and a double-sided pc board for an optimum layout. Low ESR electrolytic capacitors in the power supply, an integrated voltage gain stage and a Neutrik headphone socket serve to optimise the audiophile device. The volume controls are handpicked to ensure a high synchronism and to keep localisation as stable as on the recording.
In addition the Rhinelander features two inputs plus an input selection via a high-quality relay. By the way, it also knows how to delight as a high-class single-source preamplifier. The single-source preamp mode is active as default setting. Such an elaborate construction with exquisite components is unique in a headphone amplifier of this price range.
