The SR1a is the world’s first True-Ribbon™ headphones and have been equipped with highly specialised ribbon drivers that reproduce 30Hz to 30kHz bandwidth to eliminate the need for sealed chambered bass and allow for open-air baffles (both front and back) for a full-frequency sound field.

UNLOCK THE TRUE POTENTIAL OF THE SR1a HEADPHONES WITH INTERFACE OPTIONS ​

The RAAL-requisite SR1a is not a standard headphone and will not work on most conventional headphone amplifiers. There are currently 2 different ways to connect and drive these headphones - a special ribbon amplifier or the interface box with a speaker amp. The SR1a interface box converts a typical speaker amplifier output into the load characteristic that the headphones require. Connect your speaker amplifier to the interface via speaker cables and plug the SR1a into the 4-pin XLR connection on the front of the interface box.

SELECT YOUR PACKAGE TO EXPERIENCE EARFIELD + TRUE RIBBON TECHNOLOGY

We currently offer four customised packages for your RAAL-requisite SR1a Headphone. Select the SR1a + Standard Interface Box if you plan on connecting the headphones to your existing speaker system or to elevate the performance of your SR1a with the proper amplification. You can also choose from SR1a + Jotunheim R Amp (No DAC), SR1a + Jotunheim R (Multibit DAC) or SR1a + HSA-1b Amp.
SR1a + Schiit Jotenheim R Amplifier (without the optional DAC card). This amplifier is designed specifically for the Raal/Requisite ribbon headphones. It is a unique amplifier that delivers up to 13A per channel into the Raal’s extremely low impedance load, including baffle compensation. You do not need a speaker amp attached to this as you do on the interface box option. This option includes the amp without the DAC card – for those that already have a DAC option or do not need one.
SR1a + Schiit Jotenheim R Amplifier with the optional DAC card. This amplifier is designed specifically for the Raal/Requisite ribbon headphones. It is a unique amplifier that delivers up to 13A per channel into the Raal’s extremely low impedance load, including baffle compensation. You do not need a speaker amp attached to this as you do on the interface box option. This option includes the amp with the True Multibit DAC module, which includes a unique digital filter and multibit DAC architecture, creating a great one-box system that’s easily transportable.
SR1a + RAAL HSA-1b headphone and speaker amplifier. The HAS-1b is a direct drive amplifier for True-Ribbon Earfield Monitor headphones, speakers, conventional dynamic, and planar magnetic headphones. The amplifier works seamlessly with the SR1a ribbon headphone but can also work for traditional headphones and speakers. The amplifier has unbalanced single-ended RCA and true-balanced XLR inputs. The HAS-1b also has a precision 24-step attenuator for rock-solid left/right balance at all listening levels. This is a perfect match for your SR1a ribbon headphones if you are just looking for an amplifier that is tailor-made for the SR1a direct from the manufacturer.
