True but also why the trusted builder list fists on one hand ;)

Hello,

Does anyone have tried the soloist with AKG K 701 ?

Thanks

post #438 of 1167

My experience was with the Q701. They are well driven on the Lo and Med gain, no need to go with the highest one.

Definitely has the power for it. It always emphasizes the very open and natural sound the of Q701 I have. Really a clear sounding combination!

Volume Pot Noise:

 

I've had my Soloist since August 2012 it just started making a popping sound when the volume  is moved down only. I could not find a way to contact Burson customer service on their website.

 

Any suggestions from Soloist owners with the same issue?

Look further up this thread. Spraying it with Deoxit seems to be the most admired and respected solution.

I believe that in this thread that was suggested against. I would contact burson directly. I had some issues, but they seem to have gone away.

It was suggested that WD40 was a bad idea. Deoxit on the other hand garnered much respect. Perhaps the best solution would be to have Burson apply the spray "directly". wink.gif

... Thanks for pointing this out. I read WD40 instead of Deoxit!

There's a noise only when you move the volume knob or is the noise still there  when you stop moving the knob ?

Please report here in this thread what Burson Support recommends. Thanks. :)

 

I like the Soloist - but as with the 160D, the Soloist has the same artifact. Those pops 'n' clicks in the headphones when adjusting the volume is VERY annoying. It is also an artifact that reviewers must / should mention in their reviews. It the reviewer hasn't experienced it - it is because the reviewer hasn't had the product long enough...

Steve Guttenberg mentioned the pops in the attenuator in his review. i bought it anyway and liked the amp very much. I also noticed if you moved the attenuator up or down slowly I did not get the pops, All in all its a great amp for solid state amps. I much prefer tube amps so I sold mine but it was a solid state amp I could easily recommend and still would.

Thanks 

Appreciate your response!

It would be great if Burson can release a version or include an option with a standard Alps pot as they did with the 160DS.

 

I know their philosophy is that stepped attenuators have advantages sonically thus that is what they use for most of their products, but the tick and pops that seems to come up often on Burson stepped attenuator units can become a dealbreaker for some IMO. It bothered me enough to sell my 160D as I change volumes often during my random/shuffle listening.
