    Yes I do, but it is not really a fair comparison. The Bryston is about three times the price.

    I got as Bryston headphone amp and recently replaced the Sennheiser cans with a pair of MrSpeakers Ethers. They are one of the few headphones that I felt are as comfortable as the Sennheiser, but I liked the sound better.
    Love my Mr Speakers

    At a $2K budget the Bryston falls into the same price category as the Sennheiser (which does include a DAC) the Schitt (Gumby multi and Moli2 combo) , and the Woo WA22 (no DAC) which I am considering.

    May need to take a good look at the Bryston as I have been very impressed with their speakers.
    McIntosh/Bryston/SimAudio, Woo Audio and Sennheiser stuff.

    Re: Headphone amp

    Currently using a Pathos Aurium here. Have not really compared it with it's current-day competition but I am happy with it - it's dead quiet, drives anything, has adjustable gain and impedance, selectable XLR and RCA inputs (but no balanced output.) Using it with Senn HD650's, Denon D7000's, and Focal Elear, works great with them all.
    Main system: PS Audio P5, CAPS server w/HDPlex power supply, Hegel H160, AQ Colorado and Rocket 44, Vandersteen Treos, PS Audio DS DAC. NAD M4 tuner, Mcintosh MR74. Analog: Bryston BLP1, Ortofon Quintet Black, customized Tavish Adagio phono pre. AudioSensibility Statement interconnects. Rythmik Audio 15-inch sub. Other stuff: Sequerra Met 7's (original) Met 7 MK. II, REL Q108, Berning ea-230's, Micro Seiki BL51 with Grace and Rega arms. Too much else to list, I am gonna leave a heck of a pile of stuff when I die.

    I had a chance to borrow the Pathos, what an awesome sounding headphone amp. It drove LCD-3s, MR Speaker Ether Flows C with ease.

    ..and it has a solid state output stage with a nice low output impedance, so no weirdness driving very low-impedance phones.
