Sony PHA-1A Review

Written by

I previously lost a whole evening listening to Sony’s awesome PHA-3 headphone amp/DAC – incredibly easily among the best I’ve ever heard. However, let’s be honest, it’s a high price amp than some folk will want to pay for. However, Sony has lunch more budget-friendly solution for anyone of us who just want a better sound quality from our smartphones, tablets, portable music players, and laptop or computer, combined with the luxury of enjoying that sound everywhere we go.

Sony PHA-1A, sturdy and also small enough to take almost anywhere, this unique wonderfully made compact amp joins between the music player’s or computer’s digital output along with your headphones to deliver the serious impact and clarity your tunes . As well as high resolution listener, the PHA-1A can also decode PCM audio signals as high as 24-bit/192kHz resolution, allowing you to relax and enjoy with better sound quality than CD players.

Its rechargeable battery supplies the power you need to pump out the better sound for up to 6 hours at a stretch. Your favorite headphones will make surprising to you with better bass impact, musical details, and powerful dynamics.

Sony’s luxurious and lightweight PHA-1A provides impressive sound designed for first-class listening anywhere. The PHA-1A works together with a variety of devices. With three USB ports allow you to direct digital connection to your iPhone, iPad, iPod, Hi-Res Walkman, PC or Mac, and also charging port. This allows the PHA-1A to bypass the DAC ınside your player or computer, and decode your music with top-notch audiophile-quality perfection.

Made like a Swiss watch, rugged aluminum enclosure helps to protect the perfection circuitry inside from outside interference and as well, impacts. The recessed volume knob lowers the chance of accidental level changes during playback. In addition to, a built-in gain switch about back makes it easier to fit the amp’s output to a wide array of headphones.
