Maybe that’s the most impressive thing: All of this great sound the Soloist headphone amp provides doesn’t come at a stratospheric price. Great sound and build quality doesn’t come cheaply, but the Burson seems to me to provide a strong value for dollar in terms of price/performance. I hope Tyll will be able to measure the Soloist at some point—I would be willing to bet its measurements are first rate—it certainly doesn’t give any audible reason why they wouldn’t be—far from it. It was never less than a pleasure to listen to, and sometimes it was transcendent. When audio gear can make me get lost in the music, I know it’s doing something right, and this happened frequently with the Soloist.
