Silverstone has recently introduced two audio products to their extensive collection of computer peripherals. The Ensemble Series now includes the EB03 headphone amplifier, which is the subject of this review, and the companion EB01-E DAC.

Headphone amplifiers exist in a world of their own, where prices can range from a few dollars to thousands of dollars. SilverStone has priced the EB03 headphone amplifier at the low end of the spectrum for this type of product.

The EB03 amplifier is clearly intended to be used with the companion EB01-E DAC, although it functions perfectly well as a standalone headphone amplifier.
