Austrian Audio was formed in 2017 after the closure of the AKG office in Vienna by a group of its employees. The young company began its journey with the development and production of headphones. Full Score One was the first dedicated headphone amplifier in the Austrian Audio range. The new product uses proprietary True Transient technology, which is designed to most naturally reproduce transient processes, such as the click of a bass drum or the sound of a guitar string.

 

The Austrian Audio Full Score One headphone amplifier has a maximum output voltage of 19 dBV, 9 Vrms at 0.01% THD from 5 Hz to 20 kHz and can drive both low and high impedance headphones ( from 10 ohms to more than 300 ohms).

To connect headphones, the front panel of the amplifier provides a 4-pin balanced XLR output and two 6.35 mm TRS outputs. On the rear wall of the case there is a balanced input on XLR connectors and an unbalanced input on RCA. The amplifier circuit is entirely made of discrete elements.

 

Austrian Audio CEO Martin Seidl says: “The technical approach to designing our first headphone amplifier was comparable to creating a very low-noise power amplifier. The Full Score One works with low-impedance headphones up to 10 ohms and high-impedance, low-sensitivity headphones with impedances over 300 ohms.”
