I came from V200 to Bryston BHA-1.
I made the Comparision between V281, BHA-1 and Taurus.
Taurus in my ears had maybe more detail than Bryston but no pleasure to listen.
I sure would have stayed with the Bryston.
V281 is more musical and shows more room and fine information to me than the others.
Got the V281 end of 2014. Just made the update to the big remote because I think this is the one to keep.
At least for now.
Headphones are K812 unbalanced and T1...
