The First Absolute Headphone Amplifier Review Is In!


Bob Levi at Positive Feedback just published the world’s first review of the Manley Absolute Headphone Amplifier, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. You can scroll down to read a few excerpts, but you should definitely navigate over to the Positive Feedback website for the full thing!


“I have reviewed countless headphone amplifiers and the Absolute is absolutely the most elegantly designed, intensely musical, and extremely flexible of them all! Add in the superb remote and it’s game over…the Manley Absolute is a true achievement of its generation.”

“I would think most headphone aficionados have at least a dozen sets of cans of all types, and the Absolute is the perfect machine to maximize their singular attributes. Plus, forget about transistor edge, a big problem for me with headphones. With the ability to tailor the output type, snap and speed will be flexible and bring out the sparkle you want.”

“Just when you think the personal listening world cannot come up with anything new, the Manley Absolute Headphone Amplifier brings a mountain of new features and improvements to the party. Not only is the Absolute the most beautiful headphone amp in the room, but it is also chock-full of useful adjustments you really need to achieve the unfailing musicality you crave. With extremely quiet operation, just as quiet as solid state, you will love the satisfaction of owning this masterpiece, regardless of your headphones or musical tastes.”
