    SS Amp dilemma - SPL Auditor or Soloist

    Trying to decide between these two, anybody compared both?

    Shiit Bifrost - Why only one output?

    Why does this only have one output? This means you couldn't connect a set of monitors with headphones right?

    Burson Audio HA-160

    Anybody still think the Burson HA-160 is a great amp these days? I know the pace of new amps coming out and new, better audio technology releases rivals that of digital cameras, but I still think this is terrific amp and wonder if I can still get a good price for it?

    I've been using my T1 together with my nuforce icon hdp for a while now, but I think its time for an update.   I've been thinking about purchasing the Musical Fidelity M1 HPA headphone amp which I've read does pretty well on its own included DAC and I might buy an external DAC for it later...
