The amplifier is actually a Bryston BHA-1, with a Gungir on top and a V-Link 192 on top of all that.
Does that not get too hot? I own that pair as well and when I stack them, the BHA-1 is scorching hot. I can get away with stacking the X-Sabre on the BHA-1 because it is about half the size so the BHA-1 can still breathe well.

Got the idea from the guys over at Steve Hoffman. Was glad I had one around. Makes for fun photos. :)

I will start using my black mesh book holder/notepad holder to prop my LP covers.

My humble rig

 

 

 

DT-880's 250 ohm.

 

 

Musical Paradise MP-301 Mk-3, Audio-GD NFB 11.32... Plus a bunch of dust.

 

I could listen to the 880's through the MP-301 all day.  I use the Audio-GD mostly for DAC purposes.

 

 

PSB Image 2B's.  Not the most ideal placement, but I have no room for stands.

Looks like MT's got some sexual healing going on with his new rig.beerchug.gif

Just finished the Jergpad mod on my new HE-500's and I'm loving it.  I still need a hundred hours of break in or so.

I haven't ever experienced that. My Bryston is a few degrees warmer than the room, but nothing more than that.

Really... I wonder if my BHA-1 is different. It's serial #2 so not exactly a standard production model. It was originally Drew's (Moon Audio) sample.

From the (unique) heatsink and the tube location, I'm pretty sure that is the Millet SS (Starving Student) amp.

Yeah, it's a Starving Student I built a couple of years ago. I went top end everything on it, Kiwame resistors, Vishay, Wima and Sprague caps and RCA 19J6 tubes, silver hookup wire, etc. To me it sounds fantastic but I've never had the opportunity to really listen to any really good headphone amps so it may be a case of blissfull ignorance smily_headphones1.gif
