The HPA was the second product produced by LAB 12.  A passion for headphone listening and music brought the creation of  LAB12’s vision and urge to produce HPA came from more needs of the people in enjoying a high-quality, audiophile sound in intimate surroundings, that won't disturb others around. The fact is not everyone has the luxury of a dedicated listening room or space, and this is precisely where high-quality headphone listening becomes not only interesting, but for many a must.

Non Oversampling DAC with Tube Output

In past few years many of the most demanding music lovers and audiophiles discovered the unique sound of non oversampling DACs. With the ever expanding market of digital audio (files and streaming services) more and more people are discovering the world of digital audio. The biggest challenge for any DAC is the sound. Digital by default sounds very different compared to analog and we’ve spent countless hours for the perfect voicing, that resembles best qualities of the analog. The result is one of the kind emotional and transparent sonic performance, that is possible due to refined design choices. dac1 uses not less then eight matched Phillips TDA1543 DACs in a complex parallel configuration and dual triode tube output stage.

As with all of the Lab12 products, each and every part was selected for its sonic value, that benefited to the final sound. Dac1 is the 21st century digital to analog converter, that reassembles the best qualities of the vinyl playback without compromising at any stage. As all Lab12 products, the dac1 also comes with the choice of multiple luxury paint finishes.
