AllNIC HPA5000 XL HeadPhone Amplifier, £5000

Kang Su Park never does anything by halves. His first foray into the headphone market is a product with a fairly shocking level of ability, one which has made a very serious impression into the niche headphone market. By all accounts, the HPA5000 comfortably earns a place amongst the very best sounding headphone amps available anywhere, and at any price.

The HPA5000 is a unit made for the true headphone audiophile, a tubed output transformer-less (OTL), output capicitator-less design (OCL). It uses x2 6AN*, x2 E180CC and x4 7233 tubes. Each tube sits on Allnic’s patented Absorb GEL vibration damping socket and is enclosed in a protective chimney. The HPA5000 has +28db of gain and an output of 5 watts into 8. It is designed for phones between 30-50 ohms and will drive almost any headphone on the market.

Available in silver or black. 2 year warranty on all Allnic Audio Products , 1 year on factory supplied tubes. Part exchange welcome, just get in touch for in-store and home demo.

  • High-quality, NOS tubes
  • True OTL/OCL design
  • Pure Class A operation
  • New vacuum tube damping technology – Allnic Audio’s patented “Absorb GEL tube damper” technology prevents harmful vibrations from reaching the driver tubes and, therefore, prevents micro-phonic noise propagation in the tubes. Provided other tube components do not introduce micro-phonic noise into your system, with the Absorb Gel damping system, you will enjoy a degree of transparent sound that will surprise and please you.
“Overall, the HiFiMan HE-6 and Allnic HPA-5000 paired wonderfully. I experienced the beautiful euphonic midrange that only tubes can provide, along with natural life-like dynamics, silky smooth treble, and deep tight bass. Even after hundreds of songs and countless hours of listening, I continued to melt away into the music itself. I just never get tired of the sound. The Allnic HPA-5000 is one of the best headphone amps I have ever heard, period. Just about every low impedance headphone available is driven to its full potential and there is little room for improvement; it’s that close to perfection.”

“Hi Richard Well, you kindly offered me a ‘sale and return’ deal. I can safely say that you won’t be seeing this unit again. The HPA5000, coupled with the HiFiMan HE1000 will probably be my ‘end-game’ set-up !”
David, Lotus Customer feedback
“The Woo Audio 5 is close to perfect with the HE-6, and the HPA-5000 takes it to the next level, it’s just a little sweeter and more romantic.”
