Headphone circuit in A32?


Active Member
Question for Arcam or anyone else here with knowledge: Can someone tell me about the headphone circuit in my A32 amp?

I've been exploring headphone listening and have bought several dedicated headphone amps, but I'm curious to know what's inside my Arcam. Any technical data would be appreciated. BTW, my impression is that the headphone circuit is pretty good, even compared to a dedicated $1500 headphone amp.

I just read that the new C30 pre-amp has a high-quality headphone circuit built in. Does the A32 have a different circuit? I know that the A85 has a simple resistor circuit.

I've gotten into a bad habit of paying significant money for niche-market headphone amps... I'd love to know what Arcam is doing in its amps so I can stop buying!

Another question: are Arcam personnel posting here anymore?
