Reply March 11, Mod For slower music where transients and articulation is not as important, the HRT with its warmer tone and better soundstage presentation is a better fit. I’m so used to amps I can’t listen to a headphone without them. Gears used for review: Namely, introducing the ephemeral quality musicality into the transistor domain, a sphere previously dominated by somewhat derogatory terms such as “analytical”, “clinical” and “sterile”. This will vary just a bit with sources of course. I was kinda skimming through the article quickly and I saw the statement about the pairing of the amps instead.

Wink and myself both thought we could detect minor differences – Wink found the Burson’s leading edges to be slightly harsher than the Buffalo, and I found the Burson to add an iota of deep bass detail while lacking an iota of midrange creaminess – but I ahdio be very hard pressed to tell the difference in a blind test.

The bass response is quite unbeatable among all the amplifiers Ive bursln.

The Grace has a more audible low to mid treble while not being as full in the mids. Any thoughts on this? Upgrading to silver cables helps but at a price which cables are to recommended?

Not Burson of course. Thanks for the compliments on the website too!

Only a few years ago, the world of high-end audio was neatly split into two camps; those who cherished a valve amp’s ability to recreate natural tone and timbre, and those who busron solid state’s low noise floor, transient speed and frequency extension.


More people should dive in into headphone listening. This casing clearly contributes to the x x 80mm silver-anodized enclosure’s weight of 7kg.

In a best company of Sennheiser Ha-160r I had great experiences with both of digital inputs. I haven’t done a direct A-B, but I can say that the Burson is tuned for music listening, while the Lavry for monitoring purpose.
