    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Burson Audio Supreme Sound Opamp V6 Vivid'

    Charles at Burson provided me samples of the V6 Classics for my opinion in my setups. Equipment used are: Ibasso PB2 with 8 buffers in wide bandwidth mode. Extra Wima caps on the opamps and upgraded the stock caps. Power supply used is at 16.8V. Ibasso DB2 Dac with Muses 8832 opamps...

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Burson Audio Cable+'

    I was given this Cable+ by Charles @ Burson for my opinion and review. First thing I did when I received the Cable plus, was opening it up and see what's up. I'm pretty impressed with the enclosure. Real metal and decent cables were used. So I can see where the money went into. But...

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Ibasso PB 2 Pelican'

    I found one cheap for 100 bucks and decided to get it for the balanced out capability.  I already have a D7 Ibasso that I used on a nearly daily basis, so why not try out a PB2. In stock form it sounded great from the single ended output. Swapped out to the WB 634 buffers and two Muses02...

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Focal Elear'

    Messed around with the Elear and too bad it has to go back.     Very fancy looking headphone and has a nice solid feel. Fits nicely on my head and the thick long cable is not of an issue for me. I use heavier cables with my Hifiman.     Sound is very nice, especially with string instruments...

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Supreme Sound Opamp V4'

    If you are a bass head and still like to hear to rest of the music, then this Burson V4 could be for you.     Charles at Burson had offered the V5 in exchange for a honest evaluation.  I did and got hooked on the V5 in my Parasound preamps.  However the V5 didn't do too much in the Parasound...

    Supreme Sound Opamp V4

    The foundation of the Supreme Sound Op-Amp is a sophisticated voltage differential amplification network. The entire discrete op-amp is constructed with audio-grade transistors and resistors that ensure minimal coloration and maximum dynamics. But that also posed the challenge of producing them...

    You should try the Wima cap upgrade with the Burson's.

    The mids are awesome at default.  The topend was ok, but I wasn't blown away by these.  The sub bass wasn't there.  I EQ'ed it into submission and I cried from sadness.

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Burson Audio Supreme Sound Opamp V5'

    I was given a pair from Burson to evaluate the opamp in my setup.  I posted my finding in this other thread .   I first heard the V4 Burson opamps in fellow forum members Gustards H10.  I was amazed at the detail that came out of...

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Parasound Zpre zone preamplifier'

    The Zpre is a dated small form factor preamp from Parasound, that also happens to be a great headphone amplifier.  It comes with the Burr Brown 2134 Opamp for those that care for this type of thing.  It does have rack ears, so look wise it's not for everyone.  These can be had for cheap now, so...

    Review by 'snellemin' on item 'Chord Electronics Mojo'

    It would of gotten a 5 star rating, if it wasn't so expensive.   So I got to listen to the MOJO yesterday through the JVC SZ1000.  Total different animal of an amp.  Nice clean subbass, while staying musical.  MOJO sounds like the good stereo equipment from the 70's and 80's with the JVC's...

    @GearMe you can always add the switch yourself like I have done with my V1. The switch just jumpers over the stock drop down resistors.

    Don't know about the Zamp v.2, but the Zamp V.1 runs really warm compared to the cool running V.3  Opamp rolling in the V.1 brings in great results.  Just install a 8 dip socket.

    Reply to review by 'snellemin' on item 'HiFiMAN HE-400i'

    I've tried other amps with the HD650 and hit the excursion limit pretty quickly.  Key here is that the HD650 can't handle basshead level driver excursion.  It just can't do it and some people need to stop claiming that there is sub bass in that unit.  The OPPO PM-2 did just fine with the E12A...

    In respect to power capability, yes the HD650 is a prius.
