Heed Audio Canalot III Headphone Amplifier With Q-PSU Power Supply

Canalot is a rare piece amongst the headphone amplifiers with its RC-coupled output.


Product Description

The Canalot is akin to a nice black brick on steroids. The classic design of Heed Modular devices meets the high-tech solutions of the digital world and in addition, our unique speaker driving system. If you are not into the many-box hi-fi racks or space-eating speakers and amplifiers, Canalot provides a nice alternative.

Nice connectivity is always a pleasure. The Canalot can utilize our DAC and USB cards, and can work like a 192 kHz / 24 bit capable digital-analogue converter with either a computer or any S/PDIF-output sources.

– analogue, S/PDIF digital and USB 2.0 inputs
– upgradeable digital card system
– 2 headphone connectors
– capacitor-coupled output

Q-PSU Power Supply

The enhanced power supply of the Modular Series, the Q-PSU can be used as power supply upgrade with any components in the family. It is based around a 50 VA toroidal transformer with low-density magnetic field and very little dispersion. This power, together with 20,000 µF filtering, can feed the circuit with the kind of super-clean current usually delivered only by battery-based supplies, even with extreme dynamic swings.

Further on, the 3rd version of our Q-PSU has an internal voltage regulator system. By this improvement, all the attached devices leap a huge step forward in terms of noiseless and smooth music representation. Plural it is, because the Q-PSU III has a dual output connector. It can feed a for example Quasar AND a Dactilus at the same time without any problem.

– double, separated supply rails
– smooth, regulated voltage
– generously sized components
– ideal upgrade for many Modular range devices
