The 205D is a Directly Heated Triode designed by the Western Electric Co in the 1920s and is probably the oldest valve in current production! As a small power output valve it has all the right qualities for headphone use, being very linear in operation.

High end headphones can be very revealing sounding clinical and overly bright with some amplifiers. Sonic presentation with the 205D and our output transformers has the highest definition and incredible dynamics but in nice way, more vivid and warmer sounding. Completely free of fatigue.
The 205D is driven by an ECC88 a modern valve which ideally complements the 205D technically and sonically. The HP205D may be used as a stand-alone unit or as part of a hi fi system. The optional Bluetooth receiver make the HP 205D very versatile in use.
