Awards & Reviews

EISA Award Beste Hi-Fi 2022-2023

“By offering a ‘stack’ of four discrete units in finely crafted aluminium housings and each dedicated to their particular role, EarMen has created a brilliant standalone solution for headphone lovers to stream. The Staccato is a slimline streamer controlled by a user-friendly smartphone app, which sends hi-res audio to the fully balanced Tradutto DAC. The CH-Amp preamp/headphone amp continues the fully balanced ethos, and has the capability to power even the most demanding of head gear. Each EarMen component can be used separately, but it’s when they’re put together and powered by the triple-output power supply unit bundled with the CH-Amp that you get a high-performance system that really shines.”
