PORTABLE AUDIO - HIFI MAN
The HiFiMAN range of headphones, headphone amplifiers and digital audio players is now officially available in South Africa with the announcement that C Plan Audio has been appointed the SA importer and distributor for the highly regarded brand.
Among the first products to make their local debut is the HifiMAN HM-802, a high-definition portable music player linking a generous power output and high resolution to compatibility with most high-res music formats.
Dual Wolfson WM8740 24-bit/192 kHz DACs are the secret to this player’s superior sound quality and high-res support. This player is compatible with a wide range of formats, including FLAC, WAV, Apple Lossless, AIFF, and DSD files. An SD card slot allows for memory expansion.
The HM-802 has a high-quality headphone amplifier, specifically designed to drive HiFiMAN’s planar magnetic headphones. Clever design features include a recessed level control, inuititve switchgear (including a navigation wheel) and the ability to upgrade via exchangeable amp modules. Even the rechargeable battery is easily replaced. The HM-802 can also be used as a standalone DAC using a USB-to-SPDIF converter.
The HiFiMAN HE-560 is an ideal match for the HM-802. It employs planar magnetic drivers for exceptional resolution and expansive staging, while their inherent warmth adds vibrancy and tonal smoothness to the overall delivery.
