HeadRoom Little (Newest Version)

Manufacturer: HeadRoom Corp., www.headphone.com

Power Supply: Regulated Wall Wart(grounded) hard wired directly into amp with 6ft. cord. Power Supply made by; Elpac Power Systems.

One set of RCA inputs, One headphone jack output:1/4 inch.

Audio Image Processor switch and High Pass Filter switch on front panel.

2 green LED power indicator lights on front panel.

No ON/Off switch.

Upgrades: Can be upgraded with the Little More Power Supply, which must be done at HeadRoom Corp.

There are no specifications available for this amp; but it uses Burr-Brown OPA-604 Op-Amps. Check out www.burrbrown.com for the OPA-604 specs.

HeadRoom does not specify the type of Potentiometer used on the new Little, but I beleive it is a Clarostat Pot.

Mapletree Audio Deisign Headphone/Amp Source Router LR 1



This passive switch box is intended to permit simple switching of one of 4 source signals to either a headphone amplifier or to the main system amplification path. It can also be used to increase the number or switchable source inputs to an independent headphone amplifier.

Switches are plastic encapsulated with phosphor-bronze contacts. All wiring is silver-plated stranded copper with Teflon insulation. I/O jacks are RCA gold-plated. The chassis is 9" x 5" x 2" and matches the other Mapletree Audio products.

Price: $120 assembled. Custom I/O labeling is offered at $10 additional.
