    New headphone amplifier from Bryston

    Still enjoying this amp immensely after owning it for a couple of months now... it's extremely adept at just letting the music breath. I would say it is a tad dry overall due to it being solid state, but you're too distracted by the other things it does right to care. I came from a Woo Audio...

    New headphone amplifier from Bryston

    Since they're proprietary I doubt you'll find them elsewhere ... That sucks that you spent that much money and have to wait to use the product. Congrats though... I wish I can afford their current generation digital stuff. I've heard nothing but good things about that DAC and I'm sure it will...

    New headphone amplifier from Bryston

    It looks like you're using the Bryston's 1/4" output in your picture... I recommend getting a balanced cable for those LCD-4's. Not only will you get even more power but there are a lot of people here who believe the balanced outputs are superior (I haven't done enough testing myself to support...

    Bluesound Node 2i

    You could be right though... but one thing I've learned in this hobby is if you find something that pleases you (even if others may not be as appreciative), don't get rid of it! I've had way too much stuff over the years that was highly praised that I didn't care for (head-fi hype is probably...

    Bluesound Node 2i

    Are you just using the integrated optical/coax out from your PC's motherboard? If that's the case that's a no go for me. Not a huge fan of computers as transports as they are loud (even after going out of my way to silence mine it was still audible) and all the other components in there surely...

    Bluesound Node 2i

    I'm going to have to disagree... i find a lot of variability in SPDIF output quality and it seems like Bluesound did their homework with this device. What would your alternative be for bitperfect streaming that has a similarly intuitive interface? I paid around $400 for it used... objectively...

    Bluesound Node 2i

    I'm surprised I could not find a dedicated thread for this device... what gives? I've had one for about a week now and it's nothing short of awesome. Ease of use, pretty seamless integration with a multitude of musical services (namely Tidal), and then there's the thing that surprised me the...

    Anyone still use their Sansa Clip plus regularly after all these years?

    Another great thing about it is that you can pop in a large capacity micro SD card (which are dirt cheap now) and carry your entire music catalog on it. Same thing can't be said about many mp3 players of the same generation (most notably any apple product)

    Woo Audio WA6 + WA6SE: Tubes, Comments, Pictures, and Advice

    Anyone else find the Mullard GZ34 a little too sterile? The sound is very focused and there is a good amount of inner detail and it's technically good but I can't get over the coldness in comparison to the Sophia Princess it replaced. Mine is has a f32 date code and made by Amperex I'll listen...

    Woo Audio WA6 + WA6SE: Tubes, Comments, Pictures, and Advice

    Have recently been enjoying mine with a vintage pair of Grado RS1's... the sound (after an hour or so of warmup) is almost holographic. Using it with an old Parasound DAC2000 which definitely helps with the out-of-head experience. As a reference mine has the Sophia Princess and I'm using RCA...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Managed to finally score a vintage pair (vintage B I believe) of RS-1's on ebay recently for a really nice price Both the box and headphones have some cosmetic blemishes but you can't really expect ~20 year old headphones that were used to be in perfect shape (especially for the price I...
