Currently borrowing the BHK from my lovely friends at my local HiFi store. I have a PWD mk1 connected directly via xlr leads. I stream with a Cambridge CXN and CDs with the CXA transport, I play LPs through the Nuwave Phono converter into the PWD with I2S hdmi.
The sound is better than any amp I’ve tried, the Hegel H95, Yamaha AS2200, Anthem STR, Emotiva A300, Luxman 550AX,
The PWD is also far better as a pre/dac than the CXN, better in every way. And that’s a suprise since it uses similar Wolfson dac chips.
This amp never sounds harsh or thin, or bright or edgy, or dull or dark. It has no bad characteristics that I can hear. It’s warm and lush with great depth and sound stage. Great instrument separation and just a really nice relaxed timbre and tone. Never fatiguing.
It probably lacks a little rock n roll and speed but most Audiophiles aren’t playing heavy music late at night, its a good compromise if you had to make one.
I’ve never heard old 60s analog recording sound so good.
