SPL Phonitor xe Headphone Amplifier

The ultimate standalone device for headphone enthusiasts who want the perfect solution without any compromises.

The Phonitor xe is the first Phonitor headphone amplifier which can be equipped with the brand-new DAC768. This optional internal Uber-DAC offers 32 bits and PCM sample rates up to 768kHz as well as DSD – up to DSD256.

Balanced headphones can be connected to the 4-pin XLR socket. The Phonitor xe has a built-in advanced dual power amp that drives headphones balanced with twice the power of the standard 1/4" jack.

This tightens the bass response and makes the overall playback even more relaxed and transparent.

The Phonitor xe features both balanced and standard headphone output sockets on the front and on the back. Permanently connected headphones can be put in the rear sockets so that the headphone cable does not get in the way and disturb the look. A switch on the front allows to toggle between front and rear outputs. This also allows you to compare headphones without plugging and unplugging.
