PS Audio GCHA Headphone Amp (Desktop)

We have the PS Audio GCHA in the lab, and I borrowed it to try with the Sennheiser HD800s and some other 'phones.
 
First thoughts:
 
This is a lovely sounding amp with the HD800s. Bass is solid and high frequencies are very smooth. I would characterize the GCHA as slightly warm, but this may be more of a comment on the Sennheisers.
 
The other thing to like about the GCHA is the excellent manual. This is especially helpful since the GCHA has a USB input (not used for this test) and computer hookups are inevitably more challenging than analog audio connections.
 
More as time goes on.

My GCHA currently drives a pair of Senn. 580s and sounds great: warm, full-bodied, with slightly soft but sweet highs. I just ordered a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990/600 Ohm cans. They arrive later this week. I'll report on their sound with the GCHA after they have broken in.
 
Good listening....
