I'm still shocked about how this amp doesn't get more love on this site. It's all phonitor , violectic , etc. This amp is my end game SS. To me Bryston is as good as it gets for SS stuff. I will never sell my 4bsst2 or the bha1.
It's like, what gives? I suppose it's because they haven't done revision after revision like other companies? This model has stayed the same since inception. The one I just bought in the fall is pretty similar to the initial release.

I agree. I don't own one, but I am a Bryston fan and have auditioned the BHA-1 three times at a local dealer.

What keeps me from buying one: it's over powered, if that's the right way to put it.

I find that with many headphones, 9 o'clock is maximum volume for my tastes. I know you can get a custom build from Bryston that reduces the default gain, which should tell you something about the power output from this beast.

Yeah I might hit 10 o'clock, but yes 9 usually.
