Very motivated to sell this amplifier ASAP. Now on eBay:
I am interested in purchasing a Burson HA-160D. Please send any leads or offers via Private Message. The seller must be located in the United States and I would prefer to complete the payment via PayPal.
I am a longtime Head-Fi user but have not really used the site in several years because I thought I finally reached a settling point and happy medium with my audio equipment. I thought wrong and I am back and looking for an integrated amplifier with a USB DAC for my HD650 headphones which is matched to an ALO SXC 18AWG headphone cable (primary music genera is classical).

I am a longtime HeadFi.com member and have decided to sell my PS Audio GCHA (Gain Cell Headphone Amplifier).

In fact, I may order the HD 600 again for their superior accuracy.
