Unrivaled Power and Flexibility

Whether you’re listening with custom IEMs or reference-level over-ears, the Lina headphone amplifier will ensure you experience the full impact of your headphones and your music. With its ultra-low output impedance, it confidently drives a vast range of designs and adapts to suit their unique requirements and characteristics for optimal performance.

dCS' first ever standalone amp, its design builds on decades-long experience working at the forefront of audio design and engineering, including development of the well-known, award-winning dCS Bartók Headphone DAC. Following the Bartók’s release, dCS set out to broaden their expertise in headphone amplification, specifically to engineer a standalone component that could be used separately or as part of a complete dCS head-fi system.
