Any more reviews of the Solo Ultra Linear would be welcome. We may need a new, separate thread for the Diamond edition of the Solo Ultra Linear.

I was originally going to post a review in the Music that has Impressed
me but thinking about it I was aware that I had been impressed with what I was hearing over the last few nights(different cds each time).
It couldn't be just the music could it?Well no because I have always enjoyed my music that's why I buy it.It had to be something other than the music,the headphones possibly but I have had them for most of the year and they have sounded good for the last few months The only thing it could be is the headphone amp It has taken some time to burn in but CHUFF ME was it worth waiting for,and does it sound good no it sounds chuffing excellent.I am now hearing things I hadn't noticed before,the sound has really filled out and there is a richness to the sound and everything sounds so musical.Bass is as it should be without being overpowering vocals clear and concise,i could go on but I think you get the picture.
This headphone amp is some serious piece of kit and worth every penny at last I can sit back and really enjoy my headphone listening.
the headphone amp a SOLO ULTRA LINEAR DIAMOND EDITION and in conclusion I can only say THANK YOU GRAHAM and every body at GSP
As I am composing this I am listening to ENYA singing ADESTE FIDELES
and it sounds absolutely SUPERB

Well its been a few weeks now and after lots of initial testing I changed the Grado PS500's for the Audeze LCD 2's and sat and listened.
The overall system I now have to my ears at least is absolutely awesome.Its that good that when I asked the wife to have a quick listen I didn't get control of my stuff back for 40mins even then it was a struggle.ShockedShocked
The LCD 2's are great and definitely an upgrade from the PS500's with more high end detail.I must thank Morris_Minor for the advice there you were spot on.WinkClapClap

Now the Solo ULDE now I've had some time to let it settle in and now I have experience with the LCD's I feel that I can comment on the difference between this and my Novo amp.I think the Novo is a great entry level amp and it now resides downstairs in living room awaiting some closed back cans.
The difference between the two is immense from my point of view,backing singers suddenly go from making some contribution to having tone and expression to their voices.Everything is more lively, not an upturn in high frequencies just more detail.Old music you haven't listened to now has more vibrance which then makes you go through you collection again. Hours fly by with I wonder how this one will sound etc.Then there's the clarity to the lower frequecys the BBBB B the bass is so crisp.
I would definitely recommend going from the Novo to the Solo ULDE without any hesitation it is from my ears point of view night and day,as the Novo was the same step up from my headphone output on my Arcam amp.SmileSmileSmile

I think that's a good comparison Brad. Your wife's not alone in that reaction! Whenever I listen to my Solo UL and LCD-2's they put a smile on my face and a quick check often turns into a listening session.
