The Novo won What Hi-Fi's prestigious best headphone amplifier award for three years in a row - so you know it's going to sound good.

The Novo is an inline headphone amplifier, which means it can be put inline between your source and amp, between your preamp and amp, or between your tape machine and tape input, thus enabling you to listen to your music on headphones as well.

The great sound of the Novo comes from being discrete, which means it's made from individual transistors and that's usually considered high-end - yet the Novo is a budget headphone amp.
