One of the other projects moving through my workbench is this sweet combination of excellent bare bones pre-amps using discrete op-amps from Burson Audio! For now I just have a few pictures to share, but stay tuned to hear more about how this pre-amp will play a role in my reviews and how it is used with normal amplifiers.
Note: Hallman Labs will soon have a balanced in headphone amplifier! It was time to upgrade from the sub $100 Schiit Audio Magni2, but this is still a great headphone amp for the money. One of the best starter headphone amplifiers you can probably find for the home user.
A shot of the V5i op-amps in the tone stack/EQ circuits/filter circuits.
More to come later, including a recap and a few community sourced mod ideas.
