Novo Discrete - Headphone amplifier - GSP Audio
The Novo is truly inspired! Winning What Hi-Fi's prestigious best headphone amplifier award for three years in a row it has to be special. Discrete means it's made from individual transistors and that's considered high-end, but the Novo is a budget headphone amp... surprising!
The Novo inline headphone amplifier is what it says – it can be put inline between your source and amp, between your preamp and amp, or between your tape machine and tape input, thus enabling you to listen to your music on headphones as well. It also won What Hi-Fi's prestigious best headphone amplifier award for three years in a row so you know it's going to sound good. It's also what's called discrete, which means it's made from individual transistors and that's usually considered high-end. It does contribute to the great sound of the Novo, yet the Novo is a budget headphone amp. Customers who bought this headphone amplifier include Shure Inc., USA.
