Very interesting,   Hope it's an improvement over the BDA-1.  I read an article where the Ref 7.1 beat out the BDA-1 pretty good.

Actually I thought the DAC-2 wiped the floor with the BDA-1. So did my buddy (he owned the BDA-1) and ended up selling it off for a DAC-2. This one looks interesting...might just go on my to watch list for 2013.

No that is not normal - email Mike Pickett at Bryston - we may have to have a look at your unit.

Interesting as I am currently listening to a BHA-1, W4S DAC-2, LCD-3 set-up (many thanks to dleblanc343 who accepted to land me his LCD-3 for a week).

 

I will post my impressions later this week as I have only about an hour with this set-up (busy week-end).

 

BUT that's not too bad so far. He, he, he...

Bryston had my order for BHA-1 over eight weeks ago and they haven't shipped it yet. I have paid big money for it in advance to the dealer end of September. I'm very disappointed.   mad.gif

 

(yes I've emailed them again)

Seems like delivery is very hit or miss....

Hi

 

Something is amiss - can you tell me which dealer and I will get on it right away.

Hi CanDude

 

OK I have checked and it appears there is an issue with your order- the distributor is saying you ordered a BHA-1 without the INTERNAL power supply and we are considering not offering that version any longer. The distributor has been trying to sort this out and that apparently has been the holdup???

 

I have fast tracked this for you but need to know if you still want the BHA-1 without internal power supply meaning you would have to use it with our MPS-2 Power Supply?

This is what I have ordered:
One BHA-1, black 19” faceplate, rack mountable, internal power supply, locking mechanisms on XLR connectors and female XLR headphone connectors.

BHA-1 model code should be BHA1-XFL-19R-BLK-240.

 

Email sent.

Hi - that was the problem the 'X' in the order means no internal power supply.  Anyway we have it sorted and the Distributor has some units in stock and will call the dealer today.

Congrats, James, nice win. From the article:

 

"Bryston BHA-1
If I had to pick a winner here it would have to be the Bryston. It is a close match to the best in performance while offering superior versatility and value. It is the least expensive of the headamps here that support balanced operation, which I have found invaluable. Frankly I think it is underpriced and with the recent addition of balanced preamp outputs I doubt it will stay at the original $1295 for long. I predict a smash hit for Bryston. I'd like to see Bryston introduce another model sitting above the BHA-1 with multiple balanced inputs, higher maximum output, a remote control and a volume control covering a wider range of output levels.
"

 

I agree, and I think a headphone amplifier that has multiple inputs, they don't all have to be balanced, a high quality volume control and a remote would be a very interesting product since it would also make a great pre-amp for a speaker system.
