    Amp for AKG K701/K702

    Personally stay away from the newer Burson units with the switching power supply. I used to own a REF 3 unit and found after listening to it for awhile it had an electronic signature to it due to that switching power supply. I traded my Burson ref 3 in on a Morpheus dac. I own akg phones and...

    Burson Soloist 3X vs HPA4

    Only thing the older Burson HA-160 sounds much better than the headphone amp section of the soloist ref 3. Thats why I got rid of it and went back to the Burson ha-160. The Headphone amp section does not sound as good as the older Burson Ha-160. That is why I got rid of the Burson Ref 3 unit...

    Reply to review by 'buson160man' on item 'Burson Funk - 3Wpc Headphone Amp and 45Wpc Class-AB Speaker Amp'

    I used to have a burson ref 3 preamp/dac/headphone amp for around a year. But after listening to the headphone amp for awhile I noticed a digital sound signature to it while i was listening to my headphones using the headphone amp. So, I dragged out my old reliable Burson HA-160 headphone amp...

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    I am not a big fan of nordost products. I do have an older heimdall balanced cable version 1 which I no longer use. I still have an older nordost power cable I bought on a half price closeout that I use on my panasonic dvd player . it seems to work well on dvd players rendering a cleaner...

    Myself I used to have the Burson ref 3 dac/headphone amp/preamp. I was sensing a digital sound quality to it with my headphones . I compared it to my venerable Burson ha-160 and my observation of the digital signature was correct. I found the Ha-160 more analog like and actually I liked its...

    The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread

    Yes the soundstage reproduction on the K712 is exceptional. Much more emulating speakers in that sense than most headphones. I have the moon audio silver dragon upgrade cable on mine with the Furutech carbon fiber plug upgrade and the 712s sound amazing. I was using the Sonnett Morpheus dac...

    Pathos Inpol Ear Headphone Amplifier

    I have been a fuse upgrade fan for a long time. I have hifi tuning supreme fuses in my headphone amps . They really do make a noticeable difference on anything I have tried upgrading fuses on. I had tried the synergistic fuses earlier and preferred the hi fi tuning fuses. The noise floor drops...

    Burson Soloist 3X vs HPA4

    Funny I used to have the soloist 3 but I found that it had a electronic signature to it that I attributed to the switching power supply that they now use. I compared it to my older Burson HA-160 and I actually preferred the sound of the Burson HA-160. The Ha-160 sounds more analog like than the...

    A better power cord is usually a safe bet for improvement. Of course there are differences as well among power cables as well. I recommend an audience forte f3 it is a pretty decent cord for around a couple hundred bucks. I got mine from the cable company. It was a b stock cable but it...

    Just curious but what power cord are you using on the Schiit dac? I use an older Harmonic Tech AC-11 on my Og and It is not dry sounding in my set up.

    I would really would not call the Og forward so much as I would call it more accurate at least in my set up.I use a burson ha-160 amp. I also have a rogue RH-5 hybrid amp . I have made a fair amount of changes in my set in the last six months including the Og after I had also bought the morpheus...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Well I have had the OG for awhile now and it is pretty much fleshed in. I absolutely love the Og it is just so much more resolving than either of the dacs I mentioned in my earlier posting. Listening is amazing, I never realized how much information the other dacs were missing. I play cds and...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Well it is has been 9 days since I first played signal through the Og .It is sounding pretty awesome at his point. I had read of the sound being a little digital after full break in some peoples set ups. At this point I am hearing little if any digitis. It is wonderfully musical. I have a Sonnet...

    Been breaking in the dac with signal for a week now .But today I heard a big change in the sound. The sound is more spacious and relaxed and sounds less digital. The low level detail is also more resolving as well.
