Hello fellow Head-Fi'ers,
After a few years of having quite a few amps and always wondering if there was more out there, I finally broke down and picked up the fabled Beta22/Sigma amp to go along with my HD800. I purchased it off another Head-fi'er Mr_Senis (Ricky)and received it Friday. It was built by another Head-Fi'er (Diego Gutierrez) which he had been using for about two years. So it's fully burned in. I plan on a full review comparing the B22 with the Gilmore Lite after I've had some time with the new amp. What I will say is the B22 is on another plane of existence above my beloved GLite. In every way imaginable. Almost every amp I've had before this was an incremental step up from the amp I had previously. This Beta22 amp is more of a leap forward than a step.
I'll report more next week, but needless to say, the paring with this amp and the HD800 seem to be made for each other. Pretty amazing. Let's see if the newness wear off in time or will the love affair continue?
