Flavour of the month components
a fishy smelling circuit description

Ah I see, thanks for the clarification. If you ignore the manufacturers hyperbole it does sound like an interesting amplifier though.

Good observation, on your part!
I'll change my post to read: "manufacturer's hype"!

I may get that Questyle CMA800 mentioned in the posts above and compare it to the Bryston.

The only difference is that I would have to get 2 cma800's to run balanced, and I don't think I want to do that. Granted I can get it a super price right now.

Hmm, I'm a new owner of the BHA-1, I noticed some people were saying it outputs something like 6 watts? My manual says it has a maximum output of 2 Watts into 32 ohms at 1% THD.  Did they change it or something?

There are a lot of confusing data on their specs sheet. But I have my dear beloved BHA-1 for a year and a half now and I don't care at all now with specs (at first I was like you, concern with the specs). BHA-1 have power to spare and probably can give me a severe concussion with my LCD-2 if I'm not careful with the volume!

You're right, it's how it sounds that matters not the specs.  Thanks for reminding me that, was too concerned about the specs.

Right on, MoonSung! Just enjoy the music and the BHA-1. In the end, specs are good for comparative electronics 101. Many gear have impressive specs but don't sound musical.

Apparently 6 Watts is the real number at clipping into 32 Ohms.

Hey guys. I got a BHA-1 recently and love it. Sounds great with both my LCD3 and HD800. However, I seem to have an issue with mine and I was wondering if any you guys experience the same thing. 

 

When I have the amp running for about 2-3 hours, it would sometimes stop working and the power LED will turn red. After around 5 minutes, it turns back to green and works again. Could it be that my amp is overheating?

Sounds like a job for.... James Tanner. Send him a pm.

Haven't experienced that, but the BHA-1 can get fairly warm, even hot which could cause it to shut down if the bias adjustment is off.

I'd give a direct call to Mike Pickett at Bryston 1-800-632-8217.

Mine never shut down even with extensive (6 hours) listening session. But came really hot.
