Offered is my Cayin Ha-1A Headphone Amp. It is actually quite versatile in that it is an integrated amplifier, a preamp, and a remarkable headphone amp. I originally bought it as a headphone amp. It can be used either in Triode or Ultralinear mode. Both sound amazing but Triode to me is always a little sweeter. It operates in full class A in either mode.

As a preamp, it's no slouch! I was shocked at it's transparency and sound staging. I have heard tube preamps that cost 5 times as much that were less resolved and no where near as engaging.

Well yes, it is an integrated amp. It's by no means is a powerhouse, but that is just an added feature. It for sure is not the reason to consider owning one. It is simply a remarkable headphone amp.

It uses (2) EL84 tubes, (1) 12AU7 and (1) 12AX7. It was supplied with some rather pedestrian tubes so I ordered all NOS EI tubes. EI tubes were made on Telefunken equipment, bought from Telefunken when they stopped making tubes. Well... Now it sounds crazy good.

I am selling this because I am always traveling. I listen to my iPhone with most of the time. This has less than 100 hours on it total and 25 hours or less on the new tubes.

Here are the specifications:

Output Tube Mode switchable between triode and ultralinear.

Impedance Selector Switch for perfect interface with any pair of headphones – switchable between 6 and 300 ohms.

Usable as a preamplifier (14dB gain).

Usable as an integrated amplifier – Power output: 1.2W x 2 (RMS, triode) or 2.2W x 2 (RMS, ultralinear).

Uses two EL 84s, a 12AX7 and a 12AU7 tube.

Weight: 15 ½ lbs.

Size: (WDH): 5 1/8" x 13" x 9"
