Lehmann Audio Drachenfels D
With the introduction of the Linear in 2004, Lehmann Audio took music playback through headphone amplifiers to a new level of quality. The Drachenfels D now stands for a new generation of headphone amplifiers: Our champion at an entry-level price scores with state-of-the-art technology and can always be adapted to new circumstances with its module options. In terms of sound, the immense richness of detail with simultaneous absolute control of the action is particularly striking. Even in the thickest musical din, structure remains audible and every detail clear.
Analog? Digital? Drachenfels!
The modular concept with state-of-the-art components opens up long-term perspectives for quality-conscious music connoisseurs with sustainability requirements. Whether streaming via WiFi or Ethernet, connecting Bluetooth sources or conventional digital players – thanks to modular boards available at short notice, the Drachenfels has the right answer to all these requirements. Even when new digital standards come in, a simple replacement of the module and back panel will make an upgrade possible!
The Lehmann Audio Drachenfels D has a practical gain of 12 dB, which makes gain switching unnecessary thanks to the smoothly gliding Blue Velvet ALPS potentiometer with high synchronization and the enormously low-noise circuitry. The front-mounted power switch reduces standby power consumption to less than 1 W in an environmentally friendly manner. Its space-saving dimensions also offer you a variety of options for accommodating the Drachenfels. Use it as a headphone amplifier or preamplifier and experience the happiness of intense music enjoyment.

The Lehmann Audio Drachenfels D complements the detailed, light-footed sound of the analog model with a latest-generation digital-to-analog converter. The Sabre DAC from ESS on the four-layer board optimized against RF interference has one digital S/PDIF and one TOSLINK input each. Low-loss mica capacitors on the main board and in the analog filter of the converter as well as ultra-fast amplifier stages on the converter board guarantee reference quality in impulse reproduction. Enjoy your digital music treasures from the streamer or CD player in full Lehmannaudio quality!
