June 14, 2012 - 3 years after their benchmark setting HA-160 headphone amplifier, Burson Audio has introduced a new head amp/preamp 2 in 1 named the Soloist.
Staying true to their IC free design approach, the Soloist is a pure Class-A amplifier free from standard IC opamp and IC power regulator building blocks.
Comparing to the HA-160, the Soloist has 35% less components on its signal path which translate into a even more organic sound. Output power has increased to 4Wpc and can be varied to match to any headphones.
Furthermore, the Soloist is also a streamlined preamp that promises to match well with any power amps.
Retail price: $960 USD
Release date: 1st July, 2012
