Novafidelity HA500H USB DAC/Headphone Amp Review
April 10, 2020 § Leave a comment
“Thanks to clear controls and a remote handset, the HA500H is simple to use: I especially like the front panel buttons for basic functions, from turning the ‘tube’ mode on and off, to choosing high/low impedance and switching between line and headphone output and balanced/unbalanced ‘phones. It’s so much better to have direct controls rather than having to delve deep into menus to make the most commonly-used changes.
It’s all helped by a large, sharp display panel able to show a range of screens, from virtual swing-needle meters – fun for about ten minutes and then very distracting – to bar-type readouts (ditto) and graphic representations of the input in use. Helpful, too, is a display able to show at a glance the state of all the selectable parameters.”
