I'm sold on Burson

Up front I played with the different OpAmps and I definitely prefer the V6 classic dual and single upgrades. This setup with Meze 99 classics (standard cable better than silver) is really good. This setup makes the Mojo so boring and lifeless... so glad I gave Burson a try. Highly recommended and everyone should try the opamps... they really change the sound.

Like it (mostly)

The good: Seems very solid and well made. Drives my mag. planar cans very well and some powered speakers (though that shouldn't be difficult).

The not so good: The volume dial has a nice touch, but often doesn't advance or back off in increments. The worst part is the loud(ish) thump when turning the unit off. Probably not a big deal, but it's not very 'elegant'.

Overall I'm pleased and I suppose at the price point, it's about right.
