Bon produit

Jean-PierreG, 22.03.2017
Son numérique,un peu agressif à mon gout.Je l'utilise en sortie audio d'un téléviseur 4K Samsung de bonne facture raccordé à ma chaine HI FI.La sortie casque analogique du téléviseur seul donne un son plus équilibré ,moins médium,que le Fostex .Même remarque quand je raccorde mon pc à cet appareil.Pour ce type d'utilisation c'est acceptable.

Kleiner japanischer Wunderkasten

whitewolfmusic, 15.11.2015
Ich habe einen passenden USB DAC für meinen Shure SRH-1840 gesucht, um von fest verbauten Soundkarten unabhängig zu sein und das Potenzial der Kopfhörer auch mobil voll nutzen zu können.

Obwohl der HP-A3 schon ein etwas älteres Gerät ist und teurere Nachfolger und Alternativen hat, habe ich mich nach einiger Recherche doch hierfür entschieden. Vor allem, weil dem HP-A4 ein "neutralerer" Klang zugeschrieben wurde, was für mich mit einem ohnehin schon super neutralen Kopfhörer nicht von Vorteil wäre und wohl in einem dünnen, digital-bissigen Klang enden würde.

Der Fostex HP-A3 ist beeindruckend gut und robust verarbeitet, in einer Zeit kostenoptimierter Wegwerfprodukte ist das eine Augenweide. Perfekte Spaltmaße und Oberfläche, angenehm schwer und wertig in der Hand. Bilder und Videos des Innenlebens im Netz zeigen auch ein vorbildliches Maß an Präzision. Der HP-A3 ist eines der Geräte, die noch in Japan selbst gefertigt werden, das merkt man ihm an.
Die mitgelieferten Klebefüßchen sind natürlich eine kleine Sparmaßnahme, die aber leicht zu verzeihen ist bei dem Preis. Man sollte sie sehr sorgsam anbringen, denn sie lassen sich nicht wirklich wieder lösen. ;)

Die Bedienung ist selbsterklärend, einen Punktabzug gibt es für die etwas seltsame Gestaltung der beiden Modusknöpfe an der Front und deren leicht unintuitive Beschriftung. Hatte vor lauter Vorfreude beim ersten Testen nicht darauf geachtet und wunderte mich, dass das Gerät stumm blieb.

Das Wichtigste ist der Klang, und mit dem bin ich rundum glücklich. Alle Frequenzen sind kraftvoll und haben punch, nichts fehlt, beißt oder wird überbetont. Keine Störgeräusche, kein Rauschen. Der verbaute DAC hat einen herrlich räumlichen sound und separiert die einzelnen Instrumente derart gut, dass man jedes Detail eines Instruments heraushört, wenn man einfach darauf achtet. Kurzum, das Teil klingt spitze und ist jeden Cent mehr als wert. Ich habe DACs für 1000? gehört, die schlechter klangen.

Einen dicken Bonuspunkt gibt es von mir noch für die unkomplizierte Linux-Kompatibilität out of the box.

Eine Sache bitte vor dem Kauf beachten: Hochohmige Kopfhörer dürften das kleine USB-powered Kästchen überfordern, nachdem was ich so gelesen habe.

Ansonsten: Absolute Kaufempfehlung!
