Ultimate Discrete Class A Amplification

Gustard H26 stands as a testament to audio excellence with its fully balanced discrete Class A amplifier. Utilizing 8 pairs of power transistors, it delivers unparalleled drive and control, ensuring a listening experience defined by clarity and precision.

Versatility Unleashed

What sets the Gustard H26 apart is its versatile design. The headphone amplifier's power can be independently switched off, transforming the device into a dedicated preamp output. This feature grants users the freedom to tailor their listening experience effortlessly.

Seamless Switching with Preamp Outputs

Enhancing user convenience, the H26 incorporates two direct-inserted LM49720 dual op-amps for the preamp. This design facilitates seamless transitions between headphone and speaker listening. By turning off preamp outputs, users can effortlessly switch between audio sources.

Matrix Relay Volume Control Precision

Gustard H26 employs matrix relay volume control, ensuring a consistent volume experience across all four channels without bias. This precision allows users to make nuanced and controlled adjustments to match their preferred audio intensity.

Fully Balanced Input Stage Brilliance

A defining feature of the H26 is its fully balanced input stage. This architectural choice transforms the audio experience, providing a level of richness and clarity. Even single-ended RCA inputs benefit from the H26's fully balanced drive, delivering uncompromised sound quality.

High-Quality Component Mastery

The H26 integrates high-speed, low-noise rectifiers and utilizes 4 Nikon Nichicon capacitors for main filtering. A low-noise, high-current voltage regulator enhances overall performance. These components collectively contribute to an exceptional audio journey, marked by fidelity and precision.

Rigorous Design for Audiophile Purity

Beyond its technical features, the Gustard H26 is a result of rigorous design principles. The layout is tidy, and solid materials are employed, ensuring a clean and efficient amplification process. The H26 isn't just an amplifier; it's a testament to audiophile purity and precision.
