Bryston is at the Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show this weekend:  Sept. 28-30.

I hope they will be demonstrating the Headphone Amp at the show.

Is the BHA-1 one of the best if not the best sounding amp in its price range?

Are there any direct comparisons between it and the Mjolnir?

Does 'Solude' own one yet? hahha biggrin.gif

 

BHA-1 > Mjolnir?

 

I'm considering pulling the trigger on a Silver model. Thank you all in advance for the input.

I think the bryston is better for you if you plan on using it with the he-500's. Yes there are comparisons between both amps in the mjolnir thread, and i've compared both (the mjolnir used to be solude's actually). Overall, the bha-1 may have been a bit more resolving and smooth up high (to my surprise), but the mjolnir hardly had any burn in I believe. They're both fantastic, i have one of each on their way and I'll make my decisions after a few weeks

I have both in the house at the moment. Got the Gungnir and Mjolnir Tuesday so I've been listening and letting them break in. I'll try to have some useful comments this weekend. Been busy this week so not a lot of time to swap stuff around.

Thank you for the speedy input Leblanc. And yes, I will be using them with my HE-500's and other Planars in the future.

That sounds like a great weekend Maxvla and I look forward to your impressions. Also, that is one expensive dresser desk :)

Sitting next to my computer monitors which are to the right so I have easy access to volume with my left hand, so they are actually on my desk not a dresser!

I had a chance to hear the Bryston at the Toronto Audio Show, unfortunately the amp was demonstrated in the same room as the amp & speaker demo, so it was hard to get a handle on the sound of the amp, but it seemed to sound fantastic with the balanced Grado PS-500s they had on demo.

Congratulations!

Makes it even more fun to wait for my BHA-1... or not...  confused_face(1).gif   (want it now!)  smile.gif

 

BTW Why is locking mechanisms on XLR connectors not standard? Kind of feel naked without them... (ordered 19" black-faced rack mountable w locking mechanisms and female XLRs on front as it should be)

Congratulation! James

 

And I know why your BHA-1 got Award Nomination.

Hi

 

We were concerned that if you walked away with your headphones on (done it myself a few times) with locking connectors you would yank the BHA-1 off the stand or worse rip the connector from your headphone cable - so available as option only and warning about locking XLR's and "don't try this at home"

Maxvia is currently in the middle of a Mjolnir vs. BHA-1 shoot out. Last I heard, he was leaning toward keeping the Bryston.

Mine supposedly will arrive on Thursday. It will be going head-to-head with my current Luxman P-200.

I'll try to get some thoughts together in the next day or two. Busy week.
