RebelAmp by Rebel Audio is for people who love music. Simple and minimalistic.

You can read a brief story of how and why RebelAmp was created here.

It's a class A amplifier with a discrete output stage. Thanks to low noise floor and smart ground topology RebelAmp easily handles IEMs or sensitive headphones.

Triple gain 

Allows driving high impedence headphones like Audeze LCDs and many others.

H-L-M. It’s done that way to avoid switching from Low to High gain by mistake.

Output switch 

With it you can switch outputs between headphones or power amplifier and powered speakers without disconnecting cables.

Preamp output

Use it to control the volume of powered speakers/power amplifier.

Competent circuit design

Eliminates pops and thumps when turning on/off amplifier.

Warmth and Depth

Using this amp immediately made me understand all the comments I heard/read about it having a Class A Warmth, it gives almost an analog sound to music. I also use it as a pre-amp for my active speakers, and it works really well. I definitely recommend it!

I hope we can see more 'green' HiFi products coming out of Ukraine in the future!!
(definitely pick the Green option btw, its beautiful)

Great sound

Sounds fantastic, coming from my thx amp it sounds like I’m listening to music again. However it is definitely comparatively lacking in soundstage and clarity. But it’s so smooth and well worth the trade off.

Hype is justified

This amp is made in haven. Wide, creamy yet detailed, it is a pleasure to use. It works great with both dynamics and planar headphones; works very well with HD 600, T50 and even Arya sound good. Does it power Arya to their full potential? No, you will need a Master 9 or Phonitor XE for that, but for 25% of that price you get a really good sound. This is a must have for everyone who enjoys music. It totally fixed Zen Dac bright sound and and also improved WA-6SE tube amp when used as pre between Zend Dac and WA-6SE. As a side note I do believe it is a small change when you max out Rebel Amp and use the pre from Zen DAC. To me it sounds like it takes away that creamy sound, and push a little bit more texture. Sounds very good ether way, you can pick and choose whatever sound you prefer.
