Fidelice Precision Headphone Amplifier


Your headphone amplifier is as important to your music’s final sound quality as your headphones – yet the world is full of headphone amps with compromised sonics, headroom, and power. To address these shortcomings, Rupert and his team at Rupert Neve Designs developed the Fidelice Precision Headphone Amplifier.

Based on the headphone output circuit in Rupert Neve Designs’ acclaimed 5060 Centerpiece Desktop Mixer, the Precision Headphone Amplifier is a dedicated 24V reference-quality headphone amplifier with specifically-calibrated inputs, housed in a beautiful aluminum & mahogany chassis. With effortless, wide-open sonic performance and the ability to drive any pair of headphones without compromise, the Precision Headphone Amplifier allows you to enjoy your music with a new level of clarity.

Dedicated VS. Integrated Amplifiers

For much pro audio and high-fidelity equipment, the headphone output is an afterthought. Most products with integrated headphone amps have large feature sets, small footprints, and relatively low price points. This leads to compromised power and audio quality of the headphone amplifier itself, which can lead to a number of issues in real world usage such as low headroom, unreliable performance, and a lack of focus. The Fidelice Precision Headphone Amplifier was made to accomplish one simple purpose: making any headphones sound their best.


Fidelice Precision Headphone Amplifier

As a dedicated design, the Fidelice Precision Headphone Amplifier is tailored to deliver extremely high quality, powerful amplification, with precise calibration for any source input. This exceptional level of quality lets a listener appreciate the full depth and detail of a recording, inspires an artist to give their best performance, lets an engineer make better choices in mic placement, or gives a mix engineer reliable translation of equalization and dynamics adjustments.


Specially-calibrated inputs for all of your devices

In addition to being able to drive a massive variety of headphones without sacrificing performance, the Precision Headphone Amplifier is also capable of receiving a wide array of signals with its three inputs: +4dBu balanced line, unbalanced RCA, and 3.5mm (⅛”), each perfectly calibrated for optimum level and impedance.


Maximum input levels:

  • “A” XLR I/P: +22.8 dBu @1kHz
  • “B” RCA I/P: +14.7dBu @1kHz,
  • “C” 3.5mm I/P: +3.3dBu @1kHz

Output Power:

As measured with typical headphones, Z=44 Ω

  • 44 Ω 3.617 VAC RMS @1kHz = 300mW RMS
  • 16 Ω typical Load: 1.933 VAC RMS @1kHz = 230mW RMS
  • 150 Ω typical Load: 5.108 VAC RMS @1kHz = 175mW RMS

Output impedance: .08 Ω @ 1KHz, 16-150 Ω load, 0dBu input

Frequency response: +/- .2dB from 10Hz to 120KHz

Noise: Measured with typical headphones, Z=44 Ω, BW 22Hz – 22kHz

  • “A” XLR Input: -101.9dBV,
  • “B” RCA Input: -100.9dBV
  • “C” 3.5mm Input: -88.8dBV
