Burson audio

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, 

I am thinking of buying the Burson  Audio 160D Amp/Preamp/DAC, because of the following reasons:

1. They can drive many headphones from very sensitive HP (Denon D7k, Fostex T90) or very high impedance HP (Beyer T1, HD800 and Audeze) with ease, so I wont have to worry about buying another headphone amp ever.

2. They have a pre-amp function, and I have a spare set of speaker (Bose 301 Series 3 -1996), that I intended to use with them as well. 

So my question is that:

1. What do you think about the amp for HP in general?

2. Can I use the pre-amp function to drive my speakers? And if yes, what cable should I use?

 

Speaker specs:

The preamp will not drive speakers directly.  You will need a separate power amp or powered, active monitors (speakers with an amp built in).

Sending a signal to a power amp.

Would a dac do it as well?

So I will have to buy a power amp for my speaker.

But what about their amp & dac function? I am suing O2/ODAC combo
