Meridian Audio has announced the introduction of their Prime Headphone Amplifier which replays audio from both analogue and USB-based sources. The Prime Headphone Amplifier also provides a preamplifier output to drive an external audio system or active loudspeakers.
The metal enclosure of the Prime headphone amplifier is a dual-skinned design of interlocking extrusions which Meridian say makes the circuitry far less susceptible to interference. There are no screws – the box is opened by a hidden magnetic release mechanism
The Prime Headphone Amplifier can be powered by the wall-mounted supply provided or by the optional Meridian Prime Power Supply, available early December..
Meridian’s Prime Headphone Amplifier, features Analogue Spatial Processing (ASP) which “transforms headphone listening, providing a more natural spatial soundstage that’s more like listening on loudspeakers”.
Price is £1200
