Burson HA-160 or Graham Slee Solo SRG II?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, now that I've sold off some stuff I am ready to take the plunge and drop $700 (or less) on a SS amp for my APS V3 D5000 and K702 (forthcoming). I will eventually add a couple more headphones to the mix but for now I want to focus on an amp that I know will perform above its price point and synergize well with the headphones I have and know that I like.

I've narrowed it down to either the HA-160 or SRGII and was hoping there might be at least a few folks that have heard both and could weigh in on their differences/price to value, etc.

thanks

I've heard that amp a couple times and was very impressed with it but I think it would be too cold to mate well with the K702. I tend to gravitate more towards the amps that have more fun factor than neutrality.

I saw your signature, finally you pick SRG II instead of HA-160.

 

What are your considerations? Thanks anyway..

uhhm.... exactly what I'm wondering now...

 

I've tried Solo II with K701, yes indeed it's sounds good, it offering smooth high with a bit forward and thick vocal with nice punch. But sometimes (read: only sometimes) I feel a little bit lack of energy for rock songs.

 

Now, how about HA-160? FWIR people always said that this amp has good synergy for K701/2, how about HA-160's character compare to Solo II?
