Has anyone had the chance to try both the new Taboo and the Bryston together? Or the Soloist and the Bryston for that matter. 

post #5913 of 7262
Other than the review unit sent to Frank I, no head-fiers have received the brand-new Taboo III yet.

So that's a no on the Taboo and Bryston.

Not sure any of those waiting on the III run SS as well. I do, but I own the II and have no plans to 'upgrade' ATM.

Anyone got a good balanced amp to recommend for the LCD-2?

 

I'm willing to spend under $1000.

Yes, would recommend the Burson Soloist (as an end-game amp for under a grand)

Thanks.

 

I'll check out the Burson Solist, heard about it quite a lot.

It's not balanced though, so that's a small turn off.

 

Already have a LYR with Amperex E288CC and Mullards CV2492.

Violectric V 181 ! Right now there is one on sale in the sales forum:

The Mjolnir is supposedly a very nice balanced amp too, but with a different character.

ooo!

 

Now you got me thinking about the Mjolnir again.

That Vioelectric V 181 is pretty small.

Makes me question it's internals.

The V181 is the balanced brother of the V200. It is, according to both reviews and the maker of the amp, at least equal or superior to the V200 if you use the balanced output.
post #5921 of 7262

I believe the V181 is the balanced version of the V100.  Violectric have talked about also creating a balanced brother of the V200, but their plans for new Violectric amps were delayed (as they were focusing on the new Lake People lineup).  Of course, this doesn't mean that the V200 is necessarily better sonically than the V181 running balanced.

That's right. With "brother" I mean that both are Violectrics flagship amps at the moment.
