TransAudio Group will introduce Lehmann’s new Studio Cube headphone amplifier at this year’s NAMM Show.
Lehmann Audio is out to reverse the state of headphone amplification in the pro audio industry, where manufacturers – even the really good ones – lavish attention on every nuance of the signal path except the headphone output.
The Studio Cube combines Lehmann’s headphone amplification with all of the functionality and features required for both studio and live applications and is poised to become the “darling” of the DAWS scene due to its isolation fidelity and accuracy.
Similar in spirit to the existing Lehmann Black Cube, the Studio Cube is smaller and linkable, allowing multiple units to daisy chain and easily accommodate the headphone count of any pro audio scenario.
Its two Neutrik ¼-inch TRS headphone outputs are universally suitable for all headphone types, and its stereo inputs are of the highest quality Neutrik XLR/TRS. A pair of TRS “thru” outputs enables the aforementioned linking.
“Norbert Lehmann has been producing audiophile-grade headphone amps for the hi-fi market for a long time, and the Black Cube and new Studio Cube bring that same remarkable performance to the pro audio market,” said Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group.
“It may come as a surprise to many in the pro audio industry that, even for high-end manufacturers, headphone amps are an afterthought. In contrast to the wishy-washy performance that most people assume is as good as it gets, Norbert’s designs are accurate, with honest mids and full, clean bass.”
“They will change the way you think about headphones.”
The Studio Cube is flexible and built with the highest quality materials. An input selector switches between mono and stereo source, and front-panel LEDs monitor input signal presence and overload for quick diagnostics.
The output is Class A and all units are crafted with selected components in Germany. Users may also purchase a microphone stand mount to attach the unit to a microphone stand or under a table.
