The headphone amp  

The       Beresford       Capella headphone    amplifier    is    a popular     addition     to     our audio range of products.   The   Capella   plays   audio   with   ease,   bringing   to   life   the   music even    down    to    timbre    level    of    both    vocals    and    musical instruments.    The    outstanding    signal    separation    and    three dimensional   playback   of   the   music   brings   new   excitement   to the   headphone   listening   experience.   The   Capella   offers   you   the ultimate   in   headphone   listening   experience   with   its   clear   and detailed   analogue   sound,   excellent   dynamics,   and   holographic presentation. And   you   do   not   even   need   expensive   headphones to                                           enjoy                                           it.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Power supplies and energy efficiency

The   Capella   is   also   an   extremely energy   efficient   headphone   amp., which   has   allowed   us   to   make   it compatible    with    different    energy sources.     You     can     power     the Capella   from   a   12Volt   battery   pack,   or   even   a   12V/1W   solar panel, instead of the included mains power supply.

Connection method 

The Beresford Capella headphone amplifier is designed for connection: 1. Between the output of an audio pre-amplifier, and a power-amplifier. 2. Between the output of a CD player or Digital to Analogue Converter, and the CD input  on a pre-amplifier. The    Capella    has    an    amplified    input/ouput    feedthrough connection      so   that   you   won’t   lose   the   functionality   of   the audio path that the Capella is inserted into.
The   Capella   discrete   amplification   stage   maintains   the   warmth   and detail   of   the   audio   signal,   whilst   the   headphone   output   buffer   stage makes   it   possible   to   use   a   wide   range   of   headphones   with   different impedance with no drop off in performance. A    generous    amount    of    headroom    provides    ample    dynamic    range overhead   for   digital   music   playback,   which   reduces   compression   and clipping in the audio output. The    Capella    has    been    further    optimized    for    the    more    demanding playback   of   bass,   giving   you   greater   involvement   with   the   music,   and allows   you   to   listen   to   your   music   to   the   highest   possible   quality level   that   your   headphone   is   technically   capable   of.   The   Capella   has also   been   designed   for   the   playback   of   both   old   analogue   and   modern day    digital    source    material,        giving    you    an    even    wider    scope    of listening   possibilities   and   pleasure   to   the   highest   possible   quality level   that   your   headphone   is   technically   capable   of.   These   simple design   steps   deliver   a   more   entertaining   natural   and   rich   analogue playback.

Audio input signal controls 

The Capella has the following controls for the input signal: gain - Gives you control over the gain of headphones of different impedance. damping - Allows you to select the best possible damping of the bass. hf - Excessive noise artefacts that can cause ringing in the ears in standard headphone amps, can be adjusted to a more comfortable level.
