Overall was extremely impressed and surprised at the magnitude of the improvement.
Even more surprised when I played the turntable through the Burson. The PS Audio phono stage is no slouch but the sound through the Burson had many of the characteristics already mentioned – a smooth, punchy, natural sound and again a considerable improvement over pre-Burson.
In summary, the Burson AB-160 gave a large improvement in the sound from both digital and analogue sources. Improvements of this magnitude can usually only be gained by spending thousands, so the AB-160 must be considered a great bargain especially considering its obvious quality and undoubted longevity.
