Acoustic Research AR-H1 and Elemental Watson II combo

The new AR-H1, which was previewed at audio enthusiast events including High End 2017 in Munich, Germany, and Potafes in Tokyo, Japan, represents a new standard in headphone performance for the price-point by incorporating planar technology -- which is acclaimed for achieving detailed output with drastically reduced distortion compared to other technologies -- with an open-back circumaural, or over-ear design for exceptional comfort and sound quality.

By trimming down on unnecessary luxuries and focusing on core performance, the Watson is able to operate in a dual mono configuration, with a military grade NOS 6AK5 tubes being the center piece of each channel’s gain stage. Not only does this deliver rich harmonics typical of single ended class-A valve amps but also reduces warm up time of the valves significantly whilst extending the life of each valve to operate at their peak performance for more than 1000 hours per channel.
