What kind of gain are you running on your stage? You'd have to fiddle with the volume less at a higher gain setting.

How is the volume working now and what is the culprit? I'm having the same issue and I only found it after I hooked up my BHA-1 to Turntable coz I have to crank the volume up.

 

Thanks,

Jon

The same--very slight difference between 10-2 or 3 regardless of source-but watch out between 5:30-6-there it goes from normal to ballistic quite quickly--

 

My DAC a SCHIIT GUNGIR puts out 2 volts---

 

I have probably 300-400 hours on it.....

Running it at High or Low Gain setting--Same issue--

 

By the way this is one fantastic amp-I simply Love it--and I have quite a few other amps--both Solid State & Tube....

I've been comparing the bha-1 to the mojo for the last couple days. To me, the bha-1 is definitely a step up the ladder compared to the schiit. The schiit is fantastic for the price though. I honestly can't think of a more transparent headphone amp out there, this amp measures pretty darn near perfectly flat. It makes you wonder why we pay so much for good sounding coloration... to make things more musical.

 

If you want reference sound, something for feedback for professional work/recording; you can't beat the Bryston, especially not at its price point

 

EDIT: I also think it's plenty enough to drive the HE-6, albeit having to push the amp at its limits and needing to run balanced. It sounds fuller and larger than with the mojo.
 

1000

I agree. The BHA-1 is certainly superior, but the Mjolnir is exceptional for the price.

I really wish Bryston would get on with updating the specs of the BHA-1.  Ignoring your personal preference, on paper the BHA-1 is a 100mW AC coupled amp.  That's neither colour free nor powerful.  But given the heat output and heatsinking I don't think its accurate either.  Here's hoping we don't see a Rev4 board before we see a web/manual update :P

I think there were specs on paper in the box, also a freq graph. I can post pics this evening before it goes out to its new owner frown.gif

Why don't they just make it all discrete, fully balanced, fully differential and DC coupled.

Because it costs more like that?

post #627 of 1470

And yet Schiit builds it for $750 ;)  That said, HeadAmp does it for $2500 so it really comes down to volume and profit margins.

For Headamp:  Plus separate enclosures.  Howmany PSUs and transformers does the schiit have?

post #630 of 1470

Two transformers, 8 PSUs total I believe.
