While that was quite welcome, what was more exciting was the Bryston headphone amp.
At the AV Designs room, I saw someone testing it and waited patiently for him to finish.
When it was my turn to test it, I heard music through a pair of Denon headphones.
Then I tried the AKG701and finally, the star performer - the Grado PS1000.
I did not spend enough time playing with it, but I know for sure that it can drive anything with its 3-watt output. Even the infamous AKG K1000 can be driven by the Bryston.
James said he would pass it to me for a more comprehensive review after the show and I am actually anxious to compare it with my resident tube Melos SHA-1 headphone amp/preamp.
