Burson HA-160 Unboxing

The Burson Stepped Attenuator.

Beautiful craftmanship on the Burson Attenuator.


3-pin connection on the attenuator may need modifications to install on a non-Burson amplifier.

The Burson stepped attenuator is humongous next to the DACT CT-2 attenuator.

The HD op-amp on the Audiotrak ImAmp. Bad fit.

Modding the HD op-amps to allow more flexible positioning.

Better positioning of the HD op-amp inside the ImAmp.

I’m burning in the HA-160 right now, so stay in tune for a full review on the HA-160. In the mean-time, I’ll be publishing my impression of the Burson HD op-amps on the Audiotrak ImAmp amplifier along with a full review of the ImAmp.

    How's the Burson Amp now, Mike?

      I’ve put roughly 300 hours on the Burson amp now, but I haven’t had the time to listen to the desktop set up as I’ve been listening more to the IEMs (working on an IEM comparison article). I’m also making small tweaks to the 2-ch Beta22 case, which I will use as a reference for the Burson review.

      For now I’ve posted short comments on the lounge:
