Heed Audio Canalot MKIII (D) Headphone Amplifiers

Heed Audio Canalot MKIII (D)

  • Product Code: CanAlot
  • £905.00

Reference Class A Headphone Amplifier (with DAC 1.3 & USB Cards)

As Heed Audio charmingly portray - the Heed Audio CanAlot is akin 'to a nice black brick on steroids'.

Building upon the acclaimed Heed Audio CanAmp and integrating aspects of their Luna modular classic, the Heed Audio CanAlot as with most of the classic design of Heed Modular devices meets the high-tech solutions of the digital world and in addition, their unique speaker driving system. If you are not into the many-box hi-fi racks or space-eating speakers and amplifiers, Heed Audio CanAlot provides a nice alternative and somewhat different proposition.

Like the Heed Audio CanAmp, this is also a two-stage amplifier, and has a pure class-A output stage as well. But similarities end here. Heed Audio CanAlot is a rare piece amongst the headphone amplifiers with its RC-coupled output (Heed's signature speciality). It almost works like Heed Audio's famous Transcap-technology amplifiers, conveying all of Heed Audio benefits. Of course, the power delivery system is tuned to the lower demands of the headphones.

For a nice and smooth sound the Heed Audio CanAlot has heed's new regulated power supply. It works well with the supplied outboard PSU, but of course, there is always an upgrade option. The Heed Audio Q-PSU is the next step up with its generously sized linear, regulated power rails - and when coupled with the Heed Audio CanAlot this combination as a headphone amplifier by itself will lose you in the immediacy and intimacy of music.

As upgrades go, apart from the power supply addition that the Q-PSU offers, Heed's nice level of optional connectivity is always a pleasure. This variant of the outstanding CanAlot does already come fitted with their new improved Dactil 1.3 DAC card and also the 2.0 USB card, and can work like a 192 kHz / 24 bit capable digital-analogue converter with either a computer or any S/PDIF-output sources.

Perfect for anyone wanting extreme performance with their headphones, and a perfect 'desktop' audio system in it's own right as it can be perfectly paired with a MAC or PC to get the very best from any high-resolution digital audio formats. Remember - it can be audio system in it's own right (can be used very effectively as a pre-amplifier as well), so if you wanted to power some speakers locally as well - you could easily add in a Heed  Audio  Obelisk PS amplifier for a bit more indulgence!

Reference is an over used word these days in amplification and in Hi-Fi in general, but if you were to 'reference' a product for sheer musicality (especially in today's increasingly ''austere" digital world) that invokes such warmth, tonal dexterity and realism - then the Heed Audio CanAlot would be one of the first options on a page.

Please note - this variant is the headphone amplifier with new DAC 1.3 card and USB 2.0 pre-fitted (includes X-PSU, can be upgraded with Q-PSU available seperately).

Available in a black casing with black fascia.
