Have you eventually concluded that both Bryston and Taurus are more on analytical side, while Bryston is a bit less analytical (accourding to your friend)?
I've read many times that Bryston goes really well with different with LCD-2 and LCD-3. I am not sure about LCD-X. as they differ in specifications. Anybody had experience with Bryston (as well as Taurus) with LCD-X phones? I am looking for a universal amp that will play very well with different headphones and great with LCD-X? Isn't Bryston too analytical for very neutral LCD-X?
Did you try it out yourself? I'm in the same boat. Want to buy the Bryston for my LCD-X too. Thanks.
