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.

Quality

Only high quality electronic components are used in RebelAmp.

Excellent sound well built

Sounds excellent with my Focal Elex. Lots of power and nice tonality. Very detailed and neutral sound but with excellent dynamics. Very will built with an excellent potentiometer. Thats important because every THX amp that i owned (4 units) had horrible pots that became extremely noisy after 4 months of ussge and were returned.
Rebel uses top quality components. Also a ton of head way wth regard to power. Don't let that 1 watt rating fool you. This is a "Class A" type amp.

Capable class A power

Plenty of power to drive most headphones to full potential except, maybe power demanding planars. I have no planars to check.
Quality PSU drives the rest of the unit. Overall, it sounds good, better than most headamps I've heard at $500+/-

Sounds good, looks great

At 500$ it's a cheap amp, but it has enough power to blow your ears away, even with dark Planar Magnetics like Mr Speakers Headphones. The volume-knob has a very nice feel to it and is smooth to operate with perfect gain (i use medium). I love the green color, it's unusual, but very pleasing to the eyes. My only wish is that RebelAmp had a built-in USB-DAC. You have to buy a USB-DAC separately if you want to use this amplifier with a computer. Tested with: MrSpeakers Aeon Closed and Mad Dog, Ultrasone Edition 8 and 10, Focal Celestee, Fostex TH900
