New headphone amplifier from Bryston - Page 83

post #1231 of 1476

If it would tame the upper range just a bit, the leben just might be the amp im looking for.

To me Leben with HD800 should sound OK. But is just estiamation. I don't know HD800 and even are not very much interested in, at this time. Leben has just some particular ease of listen. Music just flow. SS even hi end are more squared in sound. But to be honest it is worth to have both types. As a user of OTL, there are many moment when I need more fast in sound and better precission. And now I strongly look for some good SS. Meybe Corda Classic.. Bryston is very nice amp. But as I do have a pre amp function with my OTL, I do not like to pay extra for this Bryston pre. I just only need headphone amp.

Buy one of the early models that didn't have the pre. There are some for sale from time to time. I sold mine a few weeks ago.

Have you heard or considered the A18 amplifier? That ones also on my list.

No, not at all. But not many integrated amps do offer good headphones out. But no personal experience with A18.

Thank you for your input. Its a bit of a gamble with this hobby I suppose and living in a state that do not carry any of what Im looking to audition doesnt help either.

I'm very satisfied with the combo LCD3 and BHA-1. Are there any other here in the forum with this combo and can tell us there opinion about it?
post #1239 of 1476
Ive had my bh1/bda2/lcd3 for about a year now arminius and I couldn't be happier! 24bit files from the likes of dexter gordon, les morgan, coltrane, & pink floyd sometimes makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. The first cut off friday night in san francisco with di meola, paco, & john m brought tears to my eyes the first time I listened to it....literally. The holographic soundstage with deep lows & smooth highs is truly something to behold.

I currently hear the SACD of the Dark Side of the Moon and I never heared it better!
Yes, the soundstage is amazing with The LCD3. Not so wide as HD800 but I think more realistic.
post #1241 of 1476
The hd800 is definitely on my short list. Have you listened to any trance/dubstep/chill music from the likes of moby or submotion orchestra with lcd3's? Some of the low-note booms loosens the wax in my inner ear! :-)
post #1242 of 1476
I heared some Armin Van Buuren stuff. With this kind of music the bass is awesome and kicked very very hard. The good thing of the LCD3 is it never nerves whatever volume level.
post #1243 of 1476
Hmmm, I'll have to check-out the AVB music you mentioned.
