The HeadLine is an amplifier designed to offer optimum performance from a variety of high impedance headphones.

Fitted with a captive lead, the HeadLine takes its signal from the tape socket of any of our preamplifiers, except the NAC 152 XS. It has its own volume control and is designed to be very, very quiet. It has the ability to drive most headphones to an adequate level (i.e. loud) with low distortion.

Headphones tend to be highly revealing of both noise and distortion, so we have expended a great deal of effort getting these parameters to extremely low levels.

The HeadLine needs to be used with an external power supply such as the NAPSC. If using a FlatCap XS, HiCap or SuperCap you will also need a special interconnect; the SLIC.
