EarMen and Auris Audio - High End Partnership

Sharing the same ownership, it was natural to use the same R&D resources already approved in the design of High End audio products.

Texas Instruments headphone amplifier

TR-Amp headphone amp uses Texas Instruments High Fidelity TPA6120 chip and allows music, not the amplifier, to be heard. TPA6120 current-feedback AB amplifier architecture delivers high bandwidth, extremely low noise, and up to 128dB of dynamic range.

Texas Instruments TPA6120 provides Superior Sound Quality with ultralow distortion and low noise.

Three key features make current-feedback amplifiers outstanding for audio. The first feature is the high slew rate that prevents odd order distortion anomalies. The second feature is current-on-demand at the output that enables the amplifier to respond quickly and linearly when necessary without risk of output distortion. When large amounts of output power are suddenly needed, the amplifier can respond extremely quickly without raising the noise floor of the system and degrading the signal-to-noise ratio. The third feature is the gain-independent frequency response that allows the full bandwidth of the amplifier to be used over a wide range of gain settings.

No Noise

Using Super LOW ESR tantal capacitors, high grade components in power-supply design and 4 layer golden plated PCB technology from PC and smart phone industry we reduced the noise to a minimum. This will improve super fine details especially in Hi-Res files where you can feel and hear the difference. 

CNC aluminum milled enclosure

TR-Amp is robust and solid. The enclosure is made from high-grade aluminum

Engineered With Care:

From Mp3 to MQA

32bit/384kHz PCM, DoP DSD256, Native DSD128 and MQA. Play It All Direct From Your Pocket!

Use it all around from home to travel. TR-Amp can be a great substitution for any DAC. 

*MQA (Master Quality Authenticated)

This product includes MQA Renderer technology, which can connect to an MQA Core signal and complete the final unfold of an MQA file. This product will include ‘stream lock’ but is not able to decode an MQA stream or authenticate it.

Made in Europe

TR-Amp designed, produced and assembled in Europe. SMT production line is from Swiss and all components are sourced from European distribution. Up to 5 years of extended warranty is available on demand.

Stream Tidal Masters Around the World

EarMen TR-Amp support Tidal Masters (MQA) playback from iPhones and Android smartphones. MQA's technology folds high-resolution files into smaller files that can be streamed on the go. As MQA Renderer, EarMen products complete the unfolding process, allowing music lovers to enjoy a wider selection of high-res music.

Stream Qobuz’s Vast Catalog of Outstanding Hi-Res Music

EaMen TR-Amp support Qobuz high-res playback from iPhones, Android smartphones, and MacOS and Windows computers. Qobuz streams and downloads music in bit-perfect FLAC, the most widely used format for mastering and archiving, at resolutions of up to 24-bit/192kHz. With TR-Amp, listeners can enjoy more than 40 million tracks in lossless 16-bit CD resolution and over 2 million hi-res files.

Key Features:

  • NEW ES9038Q2M SABRE 32 Reference DAC Industry’s highest performance 32-bit mobile audio DAC with unprecedented dynamic range and ultra-low distortion
  • Super Low ESR tantal capacitors in power supply
  • Includes a high level EarMen shielded female USB-A to USB-C Adaptor
  • 3700mA battery with up to 10h of music enjoyment
  • Separate DATA and Charging USB type C ports allow you to use it all day long in your system
  • Analog volume control for Preamp and Headphone amp
  • Double Enjoyment with 2 pairs of headphones simultaneously

Pair This With:

In our experience, the EarMen TR-Amp is an incredibly robust little desktop headphone amplifier and DAC with plenty of versatility. If you the sort of person who likes to lean back and relax while enjoying their music the Meze 99 Classic is the perfect pairing with a wide, warm sound. If you are using the TR-Amp at your PC and enjoy gaming and watching Netflix the Meze 99 Neo is the way to go with a robust, bassy cinematic sound. Meanwhile, for those of you that are looking for a detail and accuracy orientated listening experience (well suited to video and sound production work as much as it is music) the Audio-Technica ATH-R70x is a fantastic pairing as well.
