Mr. Headphooner of The Headphoneer, recently published a glowing review of the BHA-1. Advancing our tradition of unmatched audio performance and functionality, the BHA-1 Headphone Amplifier is our solution to creating a reference amplifier for the finest listening experience with your headphones. Mr. Headphooner’s review featured tons of comparisons to other top shelf amplifiers, giving a very wide view of the BHA-1’s performance in comparison to these hefty products. A few of my favorite quotes include:
The Bryston does very well with the HD800, and even though the V200 is good, the Bryston is a step up. With string music, the treble is more lively. Moving through other music the Bryston is more dynamic and fun. There is not always too much of a difference, but sometimes it is quite apparent.
The Bryston is another story. Great bass, great punch. No thinness.
The amp is powerful but still dead silent, even with sensitive headphones and earbuds.
The Bryston is a beast: It has loads of power, a a good selection of inputs and outputs, and it drives every headphone well.
I was very impressed with it in 2012, end even more so after spending some real time with it in 2019. Highly recommended.
