We are pleased to announce we are now a Dealer for Bryston Headphone Amplifiers.
It is capable of both single ended and balanced operation.
We think its a PHENOMENAL Headphone Amp
and especially for its price range.
Here they are in my system at home in BLACK.
Designed for both audiophiles and audio professionals. The BHA-1 fully resolves musical detail and clarity. Effortless transient power at any level or load. The resolution from your headphones is dramatic.
Advancing our tradition of unmatched audio performance and functionality, the BHA-1 Bryston Headphone Amplifier is our reference amplifier solution for the finest listning experiences with your headphones.
The advantage of driving each headphone driver with two amplifiers configured in balanced or series mode is doubling the signal voltage into this speaker. This configuration has been proven with our 7B, 14B and 28B amplifiers.
Bryston is bringing this concept to driving headphones. Balanced power amplifiers have no speaker currents being drawn from the circuit ground so the ground reference is always clean and stable especially when higher power is in order. Balanced amplifier outputs can never be grounded, and at this time it seems most headphones are supplied with stereo 1/4” plugs that connect the low sides of their speakers together and attach them to the shield or ground pin.
The remedy is simple and in most cases requires only changing the 1/4” connector to either two 3pin XLR connectors or a single 4 pin XLR connector. Bryston is able to provide this service if necessary. An adaptor cable is also available to allow for both balanced and single-ended operation of your headphones.
