New headphone amplifier from Bryston - Page 108

post #1606 of 1612

Hi,

Have just purchased a 'new to me' BHA-1 unit to go with my Sennheisser HD800s. Prior set up was all HiFiMan rig, including their excellent EF5 Hybrid Tube amp.

All I can say is what a revelation. While my HD800s certainly sounded wonderful with the HiFiMan EF5, they simply sing and punch and reveal so much more from the same source with the Bryston BHA-1 (source BDA-1 + Sonos service).

Thanks!

Jay

post #1608 of 1612

I agree with most of this new review just posted. BHA-1 really shines with ALL HPs. :beerchug:

 

Its preamp out is underwhelming, however, on my system. Tried the pre-out to my 4B-SST2 and VA Mozart Grand SE spkrs. No go, putting it politely. That's OK, though. It's a headphone amp first and foremost, not a preamp. For that, I stick with my B100-SST!  :wink_face: 

 

p.s. it's hilarious that El Hefe commented twice on his own review on that site.

Sorry, I got a little confused. Could you guys clarify me if that review is about one new model of Bryston BHA-1, a 2015 model if you will, or he is just talking about the "regular" BHA-1 compared to that 49 first units that came out with NO preamp output?? 

 

I could not find differences between the unit he is reviewing and my own.

 

Thank you for any clarification.

Hi 

 

Yes the first 49 did not have the Balanced outs since then all of the BHA-1's have the preouts

Hi James,

 

Is Bryston ever going to have a BHA-1 with remote volume control, using existing Bryston remote? Can an existing BHA-1 be retro-fitted for remote volume -- or just too expensive/detrimental to SQ?

 

thanks.

Hi

 

No plans at the moment and it would have to be a different product.
