Manufactured in France, Arche is a unique electronic solution which combines a digital-analogue converter as well as two pure class A amplification modes designed especially for headphones. Ideal to sit between the digital sources and your audiophile headphones, Arche is the perfect solution to fully enjoy your headphones, whilst benefiting from the performance delivered by the converter to drive high-fidelity loudspeakers!


The two premium AK4490 balanced digital-analogue converters can process formats in PCM format up to 384kHz, as well as DSD 256. The analogue signal is then routed towards 2 pure class A amplification modes designed especially for headphones (voltage, hybrid) for an uncompromising solution. The original audio signal is totally respected, so as to reproduce the tiniest details of the recording.


Upon entry of the digital signal, Arche offers a resolute audiophile design through its uncompromising dual-mono construction, from signal processing to amplification. And thanks to the presets integrated, every user of Focal headphones gets amplification to suit their product and their favourite tonal balance.


Arche comes with a solid aluminium headphones mount inspired by the brand’s logo: accessing and storing the headphones is therefore quick and easy, as well as looking incredible and saving on space!
