Might still be ;)  

 

Problem I have with the Bryston is mostly academic but more importantly, its not described in a way that I want to head.  But until I actually hear my PWD2 I can't write it off.  HeadAmp gear tends to hold its value pretty well because of the build time and quality so its not too risky to try the GS-X v2.

 

If it ends up being a GS-1 with MOAR POWER!!! I don't think it would be too hard to sell.  And again for all I know, the GS-1 was simply showing the W4S DAC-2 for what it was while the Peak coloured the sound in a more pleasant light.  I know I ended up preferring the Octave to the DAC-2 so who knows PWD2+GS-X2 might just be a match made in heaven.  Also have a Dynahi coming but that won't be completed until late winter, early spring... I hope :D

 

And here I thouht I was done rolling amps /sigh ;)

Was the GS-1 to transparent for your tastes - are you looking for a little color?

hah...we'll see.  I was mostly just looking for some enhancements to the current one, and i'm not really getting any entries like that.

Solude, I guess you're ordering at a really good time.  Your wait probably going to be a lot less than mine has been!

post #24 of 3239

This is the only one I would consider...

 

 

But I prefer the current logo.  Messing with a brand's symbol is tricky.  Lots of the entries would make the brand look like a toy.

Mr.Sneis,

 

You've got to have the world record.

post #26 of 3239

Nah, I personally know others who have waited longer for BHSE!  I wouldn't change the logo personally.  Looks perfect already.

Looking over my notes if anything I felt it was not transparent enough.  My notes say that it was compressed some and lacking of texture and resolution.  Which is interesting because way back when I got the HeadAmp Lite it was head and shoulders above the rest.  Which later became a HeadAmp Reference until it was sold when I went over to the Stax Mafia.  I expected the GS-1 to wipe the floor with the others on resolution but meh /shrug

I sent the GS-X w/ the new modules to Kevin Gilmore to see what he thinks of the changes to the module design.  Will see what he has to say about it with the HE-6 (I already know it's loud..)

Where is the volume knob located on comfortable listing levels?
