The Topping L30 is a headphone amplifier with preamplifier function that is compact, affordable and, above all, extremely powerful!

It benefits from excellent measurements, allowing it to deliver a sound reproduction of incredible precision, richness and dynamics. The L30 uses the same NFCA (Nested Feedback Composite Amplifier) modules as the Topping A90 flagship. The hybrid voltage/current feedback architecture combined with UHGF (Ultra High Gain Feedback) technology provides excellent AC and DC performance.

The unit’s high output level allows it to easily accompany low impedance headphones. The L30’s ultra-low noise of 0.3µV gives it a considerable lead over the competition, as does its extremely high dynamic range of 141dB. It is therefore capable of delivering vivid sound reproduction with unrivalled clarity. During measurements, the high limits of the Audio Precision APX555B analyzer have even been reached!




Ultra High-Performance NFCA Modules
The TOPPING L30 headphone amplifier incorporates NFCA(Nested Feedback Composite Amplifier) modules from the flagship A90. The TOPPING L30 amplifier provides excellent AC and DC performance by using a voltage-current hybrid feedback architecture.

The L30 amplifier incorporates TOPPING’s UHGF (ultra high gain feedback) technology in a voltage-current hybrid feedback architecture. The TOPPING L30 amplifier can drive any pair of headphones without compromises, providing a perfect and flawless musical representation accompanied by unparalleled levels of clarity.


Surpassing The Limits Of APX555B
The APX555B is a two-channel audio analyzer by Audio Precision© (AP). It is widely recognized as the global standard in audio testing equipment, helping engineers worldwide design, validate, characterize, and manufacture audio products.  Over the years, we have witnessed many companies claiming ridiculous numbers with no proof to back up their claims. High output power, low distortion, and high dynamic range.


Three Gain Settings
TOPPING L30 has multiple gain settings including -9.9dB gain setting to allow for the finest, granular gain control.

TOPPING L30 Gain Settings:

  • Low (-9.9dB).
  • Mid (0dB).
  • High (9.5dB).

Three gain settings that include unity and low-gain (-9.9dB) should provide a considerable amount of usable volume control for sensitive IEMs. Switching between the three gain levels is a relatively straightforward process, simply flick the dedicated metal gain toggle switch on the front panel.

Low and mid-gain levels (-9.9dB and 0dB) are suitable for driving efficient over-ears and IEMs, Owners of power demanding, hard-to-drive headphones will find themselves frequently switching to high gain (9.5dB). TOPPING L30 is capable of powering all different kinds of headphones, from highly sensitive IEMs to power demanding full-size headphones.


Excellent Amplifier + Preamp
The TOPPING L30 can be used in two modes, amplifier and preamplifier modes. One of the advantages of TOPPING’s NFCA modules is their ability to transfer the same performance and allow their use as a state of the art preamplifier. The NFCA modules of the L30 are capable of providing the same transparent performance of the L30, but doing so with an astonishingly low out impedance of 20 ohms.

The preamp functionality is easily accessible by a dedicated switch on the front panel. Many users will appreciate this approach as it avoids the need to unplug your headphones to use the preamp function. To use the TOPPING L30 as a preamplifier, simply toggle the front switch, and now you can use the L30 to control the volume of your powered speakers or attenuate the volume of your power amplifier.


External AC Power Supply
To preserve the tiny footprint and ensure consistent performance under all circumstances, TOPPING chose to take a different approach using an external AC adapter to power the L30.  Using an external transformer-based AC adapter to convert a higher-voltage current provides many advantages compared to DC.


Ultra-High-Performance Stack: TOPPING E30+L30
TOPPING designed the E30 and L30 to match well as a matching stack offering extreme levels of performance. It is challenging to find any other single-ended audio equipment that is capable of offering better performance or value than the TOPPING E30+L30 stack.

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
