<!–This Ridiculously Good (and Ridiculously Expensive) Headphone Amp Is Cheaper Than Ever • Gear Patrol<!– –>

Upgrade Your Desktop Audio

World Wide Stereo is having a big sale on a ton of audio gear for Memorial Day. You can save up to 40 percent on headphones, up to 30 percent on portable speakers, and up to 20 percent on turntables. You can check out all the things you can save on here. Just make sure to use the code “MEMDAY” at checkout.

The Astell & Kern ACRO L1000 is one of the things that sticks out to us. It’s an all-in-one desktop amplifier, headphone amp and DAC that’s made almost completely out of aluminum — it’s beautiful. Not only is it a hi-fi lover’s dream (capable of playing hi-res audio files up to 32bit/384kHz without downsampling, and it supports native DSD playback), but it’s got one of the biggest, boldest and most satisfying volume knobs we’ve ever felt.

The ACRO L1000 normally costs $899, but the discount code knocks well over $200 off that. It’s still expensive, for sure, but it’s the best deal on this gorgeous amp that we’ve ever seen. Upgrade your desktop audio setup.
