Sennheiser’s HDV 820 is the next generation of its acclaimed
digital headphones amplifier, designed to complete the Sennheiser audio
experience and perfectly complement its high-end audiophile headphone range for
the ultimate acoustic performance.

The perfect partner
for reference-class headphones.

There are two things that mark a quest for perfection: It is
never completed, and it has the potential to bring out the most extraordinary
things with the power to shape the future within its field. Enter the HDV 820,
which will surely change the way you listen to and experience your music. That
is, if you are lucky enough to possess headphones capable of turning the
extremely high-quality audio signal delivered by the HDV 820 into an aural
quality just as supreme.

The mission: Better
the best

When you have engineered audio components that represent the
state of the art, going one better is the most rewarding task we at Sennheiser
can think of. It was the task we set out on when we designed the HDV 820.
Pioneering into new technological territory, we found still more sonic truth to
bring to our most demanding clientele.

The sound: Making
great headphones show all their class

Virtually everything. That is what the HDV 820 will give to
your headphones. So, it will be up to them to make it heard. The different
timbres of two otherwise identical instruments. The distance between the
musicians of an orchestra, the tension before a singer delivers the first note.
It is all there, for you to discover.

The technology: Only
the unsurpassed

The higher the tech, the higher the emotion. The heart of
the new HDV 820 is a formidable ESS SABRE32 DAC (digital-to-analog converter)
that surpasses the previous generation with an even higher resolution of 32
bits and a sampling rate of up to 384 kHz. The amplifier is also capable of
playing DSD256 files of up to 12.3 MHz.

The design: Giving
the eyes a taste of how it sounds

Fittingly for an audio component that delivers such an
incredibly pure sonic experience, the HDV 820 has also been created to delight
visually. It features a new anodized black finish with white LED lights that
has been designed to perfectly complement the latest version of our flagship
high-end headphone, the HD 800 S – by the way, an ideal partnership for the
ultimate audiophile listening experience.

The compatibility:
Outstanding sound will find a way

With a breadth of audio outputs that include XLR3, XLR4, 6.3
mm- and a 4.4 mm Pentaconn socket, it is easy to find the optimal way to
connect your headphones with the HDV 820. It performs brilliantly with digital
sources, whether optically, coaxially, or via USB, and features balanced (XLR)
and unbalanced (RCA) analogue inputs. The HDV 820 also comes supplied with a
dedicated, country-specific power cable.
