Audeze Deckard Class A Headphone Amplifier

If music is an important part of your life you deserve to hear the real thing. The Deckard is a powerhouse of a headphone amplifier combined with a high-performance DAC. There’s a front panel volume control and switches to choose gain and input so you can use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp to drive your whole desktop system. The sound is exciting and dynamic with beautifully rendered tonal colors that make music come alive.

"Convincing, and distortion-free. Their sound is faultless"

“Simply put, there's nothing else on the market like the Audeze iSine series."

"The soundstage is spacious, and never 'stuck' to the speakers; bass is full, defined and deep, and best of all the treble is refined and pure."

"Each instrument was easily detectable from the next … never any smearing … the openness of the sound was simply jaw dropping."

 

EXCLUSIVE DAC AND AMPLIFIER TECHNOLOGY

The DAC section has impressive specs and handles 16 to 32-bits and 44.1kHz to 384kHz sampling rates. The Deckard features a single-ended class-A output stage with good damping characteristics to control the strong and tuneful bass. Its power handling capabilities at lower impedances is ideal for planar magnetic headphones, but It drives any headphone with power to spare.

 

 

ENGINEERED AND HANDCRAFTED

The style and build quality is simply outstanding, the brushed aluminum finish and heft of the Deckard is substantial. The Deckard has input and gain settings with a smooth-turning volume control and puts out 4W of incredibly low-distortion sound for more air, separation and soundstaging abilities.

 

 

CUTTING-EDGE INDUSTRIAL DESIGN BY BMW'S i8 TEAM

You’ll not only be proud of how the Deckard sounds, it also looks striking on the desktop with beautifully machined heatsinks down each side. Our strategic partner Designworks, a BMW group subsidiary, provided the industrial design for the Deckard. Audeze combined their cutting-edge designs with our own circuit technologies to create an astonishingly accurate sounding headphone amplifier.
