I got my Soloist a few days ago! After only a few days of burn-in, I can say that this is best amp I had for my Audeze LCD-2. Previous amps I had was the Schiit Lyr and PS Audio GCHA. The details and clarity with the Soloist is at a whole new level. I was surprised to find that with the increased details, there was no listening fatigue at all, even with compress or poorly recorded pop music. The bass extension is the best I have heard; did not realize the LCD-2's bass can go this deep until I heard it with the Soloist. I am glad I made the purchase.
My gain setting is Low, and I get enough volume between 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions on the volume knob.
I noticed something strange about the volume knob. It's not really perpendicular to the font panel; one side seems to stick out more. Here are a couple of photos I took. The first photo is when the knob is at 9 o'clock, the second photo is when it's at 3 o'clock. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?
Congratulations! It is a fine amp indeed.
About the volume knob, I can tell you that mine doesn't have that problem, at least not in any noticeable way. But I'm pretty sure it doesn't affect performance in any way? If you're bothered by the aesthetics of it I suggest you write to Burson about it and see what they have to say.
