Darkglass Electronics has launched a brand new product today, shipping from Audio Distribution Group this week.

Element
Headphone Amp and Cabinet Simulator

With a uniquely innovative approach, the Element incorporates cutting edge design and technology into a seemingly simple device. 

On the surface, this useful headphone amp is designed to handle the very core task of every musician – practice. But the Element goes much further than that, making it a crafted tool to expand your musical reach.

Add in the latest Bluetooth streaming technology to listen to backing tracks from a smartphone or tablet while playing, rehearsing or studying, two headphone outputs to allow interaction with other players and the Element becomes one of the most helpful tools musicians can have to help make music at home!
