Fostex - HP-A4 - USB DAC & Headphone Amplifier




HP-A4 24 bit DAC Headphone Amplifier

Model HP-A4 is a new, improved version of the acclaimed HP-A3. It offers up to DSD 5.6MHz and PCM 192kHz for superior audio playback functionality as well as the sophisticated and class-leading appearance of the flagship HP-A8C.

USB Driver for Windows (V.2.1.0)

Dedicated USB driver software is necessary to install on PC for Windows. Mac OS (10.6.1 or later) works with its own USB driver. Please be sure to uninstall the old driver software before installing this software.

You can download the Windows driver here
