New Burson Soloist SL Headphone Amp! - Page 14

post #196 of 205

Hello,

 

I am considering the Soloist SL to go along with HE-500, but I am debating which DAC is worthy. I am considering the Kingrex UD384, the ODAC, and everything in between. Does anyone have experience with semi-budget dacs between 150$ - 500$ running through the Soloist SL and HE-500?

A little bit off topic, I recently just upgraded my SL to the Auralic Taurus Mk II amp for my HE 500 with HE 6 balanced cable attached.

Although I enjoyed the new setup a lot which are generally better, but I am really amazed about how the SL was close to the Taurus in performance, I'd say the SL already damn close to unleashing the full potential of the HE-500.

Interesting to know about the Taurus. I have the Soloist SL paired with a Concero HD dac and LCD 3 and the combo sounds great.

Not being mean, but is that a sign of how well the SL performs or does the HE-500 just not scale that well?

 

Over the weekend I will try the HE-400 with two entirely different amps (Lehmann Linear, McIntosh MHA100), simply to test scalability.

I would say both, at least most reviews I read claimed the HE-500 is a fairly easy to drive phone which could attain most of higher end phones like the HE6 or HD800's performance.

 

beside this, I do think the Soloist SL is a bargin which just sits below the sharp rise of  the law of diminishing return
