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.

That makes at least three of us.  I've got the LCD-X's on order now.  Not sure what amp to move to yet.

I'd rather have an honest amp and let the headphones apply the sound signature.  I believe the BHA-1 is perfect for that.  I haven't spent that much time with my new BHA-1 but, from what I have heard thus far, I've been very impressed.

How can you call it an honest amp? How can anyone call it an honest amp? An amp that adds brightness that was never there, not when the band  recorded the music, not when they played it live, never.

Honest?  To me, that means uncolored sound.

 

Are you claiming that the BHA-1 is bright?  Or, are you saying the amp is brighter than other amps you prefer?

So basically you said it yourself, uncolored sound, yet on the other hand, you said that BHA-1 is not bright, meaning you have put yourself the idea that the sound it gives you is uncolored, and the brightness that you hear is natural.

At least we can agree on the definition of 'uncolored' sound.  LOL.

 

The BHA-1 has not changed the sound of any of my recordings that I've been listening to for years.  So, I cannot claim that the sound is bright, or forward.

Perhaps, my headphones are masking the claimed 'brightness'?

Please post your findings  -----  very curious to see what you think.  I'm used to a tube amp and am a little leery about solid state amp in general.  Based on what I'm reading here, seems like the music will sound the same as it does coming out of the DAC... I guess since I like to tube roll I'm used to some sort of coloring.
