TOPPING L30 Headphone Amp
We hate being the bearers of bad news, but the TOPPING L30 has reached its end of life. We think you might enjoy the TOPPING L30 II Amp instead.
The TOPPING L30 Headphone Amp is the companion to the highly reviewed TOPPING E30 DAC. It can be used as an amplifier or a pre-amplifier, comes equipped with NFCA modules like that in TOPPING's flagship A90 Amp, has 3-step gain settings, and is certified Hi-Res Audio. It comes in four colors: black, silver, blue, and red.
The L30 uses NFCA (Nested Feedback Composite Amplifier) that allows it to drive low impedance headphones with ease. It has an ultra-low noise level of 0.3uV that blows out the competition, while producing a high dynamic range of 141dB with no audible noise or dark backgrounds in sensitive IEMs.
High voltage swing of 26Vp-p, power of 3600mW per channel, and output impedance of less that 0.10 ohms let the L30 drive power hungry headphones with wide range of impedance. The three gain settings add to the ability of the L30 to drive a wide range of devices. Finally, the L30 can also be used as a pre-amp and again produces high performance numbers. Output impedance in pre-amp mode is as low as 20 ohms.

"The L30 follows in the footsteps of the A90 by sounding super clean...at only $140, it proved its value many times over." -SoundNews
"You can't tell it's there...it doesn't color anything, as far as I can tell." -The Home Theater Fanatics
"The sound signature is similar to the A50s and the A90--that 'TOPPING house sound of neutrality'. They're a very balanced sound signature. They're not over-saturated, over-bright, or have weird tonality shifts or gaps in the sound staging. They're just fully, complete, really neutral, really good-sounding amplifiers." -Joshua Valour
