Description

Overview:

The HP-V8 is a high-end, stand-alone vacuum tube headphone amplifier using the legendary 300B power tubes, for the first time in a pure headphone amplifier design. The signal to noise ratio of 115dB is very low for a tube design and is achieved using Fostex’s proprietary ST-PC technology, as well as thorough noise reduction countermeasures. The resulting sound reveals the true authentic power of a tube amplifier.

Main features

  • The power section consists of toroidal power transformers, heater transformers and a choke transformer made by Bando Electronics
  • Output transformers are custom-made by Hashimoto Electric for the balanced and unbalanced outputs
  • KT88 tubes are used in the proprietary powering system "Stabilized Tube-controlled Power Circuit (ST-PC)"  to significantly reduce residual noise, achieving a S/N ratio of 115dB
  • E88CC and 300B tubes are used as amplifier tubes and power tubes respectively
  • The base plate is a 2kg aluminium slab and the power tubes are mounted in an OFC plate with Teflon washers, to completely eliminate vibration noise
  • High anti-vibration rubber feet also isolate the chassis from the floor
  • A pure audio grade electric volume control is used to completely eliminate any difference between L and R volumes
  • Custom-made electrolytic and film capacitors as well as a Furutech AC inlet are incorporated in the design
