Description

VIOLECTRIC HPA V550 

Here is the successor of the very appreciated Violectric V281.

The HPA V550 covers most features of the review winner DHA V590 - except the D/A converter.

So, HPA V550 covers the analogue functionality, the perfect driving of any dynamic headphone and the outstanding pre-amp function. The latest findings from the multiple test winners from Violectric and Niimbus were implemented in the headphone amplifier. All functions can be conveniently controlled using a stylish remote. With its incomparable technology, HPA V550 not only offers one of the most powerful headphone amplifiers in the market, but also:

Lowest Noise - through a very small amount of internal gain. This makes the amplifier's self-generated noise inaudible. 

High Output Voltage - through 50 V internal operating voltage. Therefore ideally suited for high-impedance headphones deserving high output voltage swing. 

High Output Power - thanks to powerful amplifiers that offer far more power even the most demanding headphones would need. So best suited for headphones with low impedances as well as magnetostatic headphones 

High Damping Factor - due to lowest output impedance. Therefore the ideal match for difficult to drive headphones without negative side effects and with the guarantee for a uncompromising frequency response. 

Remote: 
Control the HPA V550 with its stylish remote control, milled from a solid piece of aluminum. Via infrared rays you have access to motorized volume control, mute, input selection, resampling settings, Headphone and line-out control.

Introduction to Lake People

Established in 1986, we have since become your partner for professional audio electronics. Following our motto “tools - not toys”, we achieved highest reputation during the past years amongst our customers. These are private studios, broadcasters and TV companies. Also airports, congress and exhibition centres count on the reliability of our products made in Germany. This all began under the roof of Rosgartenstrasse 13 in the city of Konstanz. Here, three young guys started with the development and manufacture of limiters and noise gates but not too successfully in the beginning. The commercial survival on a very low level was made possible by the production of headphone amplifiers. From 1989 on, the production range was extended to level matching and balancing amplifiers such successfully, that it came essential to move to larger premises.

Since 1991, the new address read: Haidelmoosweg 52. Due to the developement of the first german 20-bit A/D and D/A converters in the beginning nineties, the name Lake People resounded throughout the land. Suddenly, the company was regarded as a high-tech brand, with a highly positive effect on its public reputation. The growing know-how led to many new products in the analog and digital domain during the following years. Although some projects turned out to be flops, most devices met the customers' requirements, with the effect of continuous growth of the company. By the end of the nineties the 140 m² of Haidelmoosweg 52 went cramping.
Again, a move to new premises came necessary. As it was obvious that rental facilities would not meet the demands, we decided to put up our own building. The company site was constructed in 2000 in a new industrial park in Konstanz, Turmstrasse 7a, just a hundred metres from the lake. Also in 2000, Lake People was transformed into a Ltd. company.

Improved Violectric headphone amplifier and excellent service fr

I have purchased the Pro model of HPA V550 headphone amplifier to be used with my Meze Empyrean headphones. The Pro model has an advanced relay-based volume control and it is really smooth and quiet. I already have an older HPA V200 and this is definitely an improvement - cleaner, more powerful and balanced. I have now ordered balanced headphone cables.

I would also like to thank PlayStereo for their service. This was my first purchase and shipment was from Italy to Abu Dhabi, UAE. To my surprise, I received it in only two days and it was the most efficient delivery that I have experienced during my 20 years in Abu Dhabi. Well done!
