I received my Burson HA-160 early last week but didn’t get a chance to set it up until this weekend.

I love my headless Mac mini delivering bits to my Weiss DAC2, but my wonderful front end would be all for nought if the HA-160 couldn’t articulate both the extra resolution and the flow of the music. It does that and then some.

I’m really impressed with the HA-160, it is powerful enough to drive most any headphone but nimble enough to capture and recreate the nuances.
You should be proud.

Fondest regards,
