HA-L7A BEHIND THE SCENES
MESSAGE FROM THE ENGINEERS
The HA-L7A is Yamaha’s first high-end headphone amplifier that optimizes the amplifier technology that Yamaha has cultivated over many years with Hi-Fi components and AV receivers for headphone listening, with the goal of allowing users to deeply immerse themselves in a variety of content. We hope you will enjoy your favorite content, including music, anime, movies, sports, and more, with Yamaha’s unique sound experience.
Product Planning/Circuit Design
Currently, there are a wide variety of music listening styles and content, and many users are trying to find the ultimate listening experience with their headphones. We designed the HA-L7A for these customers based on Yamaha’s unique sound experience. When listening on headphones, it is very easy to feel the noise components, even when they are not audible when listening on speakers. Therefore, with the HA-L7A, we spent a lot of time on the realization of functions and designs, including the circuit design and selection of parts, and were able to achieve the quality we were aiming for. I hope you will experience the unique sound world of HA-L7A for yourself, either in combination with Yamaha’s flagship YH-5000SE headphones or with your own headphones.
Headphone enthusiasts value the “original sound” and sometimes have the impression that the “sound will be worse” when you deviate from it. Therefore, with the HA-L7A, we tried to adjust the SOUND FIELD mode to be close to what headphone enthusiasts want, while being aware of the “original sound” heard in Pure Direct mode. Please take a moment to listen to your content enhanced by the SOUND FIELD mode. I think you will feel the localization and movement of the sound intended by artist or producer that cannot be experienced with headphones alone, the differences in the six modes, and the fun of using the modes differently.
