The RHA Dacamp L1, the first portable DAC-amplifier and the first non-headphone product by the Scottish firm, won the Red Dot Award for Product Design 2017. It was selected among 5,500 products and it will be displayed in the Red Dot Museum in Essen, Germany.
The RHA Dacamp L1 was launched back in November together with the new flagship headphones. The company claims the design “combines classic hifi aesthetics with the capability to reproduce high-resolution, true-to-life audio any time, anywhere.” Although evidently a headphone amplifier, the design is easily recognizable thanks to the three knobs on the side.
The amplifier is a hi-end device which can drive headphones from 3.5 mm jack and mini-XLR output connectors, holds a 4,000 mAh battery which allows up to 10 hours of playback and is made out of machined aluminium. It has a price to match, too, as it costs £399.95 / $549.95 / €549.95.
