Great Upgrade to Chip OpAmps

I changed out the OPA2134 chip opamps in my Akitika PR-102 preamplifier (including headphone amp) with the Burson V6 Vivids- Wow what an improvement! While the OPA2134 are excellent opamps, the discrete V6 Vivids are much better sonically (dynamics, texture, soundstage, instrument separation/placement, etc.). I was very happy upon my first listening session, but as they "burnt in," it got even better. I feel as though I'm finally hearing everything in my hi-re recordings. I'm very happy!

Burson for Minimax DAC

My Eastern Electric Minimax DAC already had the Burson's V4 single opamps (see photo). I now replaced the dual opamps by the Burson Vivid V6. It make a difference, no huge but in details. You need some hours to wait, unitil you can realy judge the opamps, but it makes worthwhile to do so. I use the dicrete opamp to listen to Pop and jazz music and the tube output for classical music.

Warm, clear, my new favorite op amp

Exactly as advertised. This is an excellent side-grade from the Sparkos SS3602. The Sparkos is clear and open where the Burson V6 Classic is warm and rich. ( I haven't heard the v6 Vivid, so I can't compare.) This will give you well-defined, textured bass, without sacrificing too much clarity elsewhere. In my system, the v6 Classic is exactly what I needed. Not necessarily better, just better for my room, gear, tastes. Running this in my Aune x8 -> Outlaw 2160 mk2 -> Dali Opticon 2 mk2. I had a little too much heat right around 9-10k hz, right on top of cymbal strikes. Not fatiguing, just too much information up there. If your tastes run towards anything from ~1979-1989 (think Pink Floyd's The Wall, Peter Gabriel's So, Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time, New Order's Technique), you have to try these. This op-amp loves that cool, dry, '80s production from your favorite British rock/pop/metal records, as well as Mingus/Coltrane era jazz. If your tastes run more towards 70s rock, recent pop/dance, or you're just a sucker for that last bit of top end detail, then you might try the v6 Vivid, or the Sparkos. As with all op-amps you will need a very resolving system to appreciate the change. This won't change your life, just slightly reorder the priorities of your system's DAC. Still, if you're into this hobby, it's money very well spent. I've found diyAudio is a great seller, and you should definitely spend your money here.

Great for tired ears...

Like most adults that have lived an active outdoor work life my hearing has taken a beating. Over time I noticed that I push my IEM's harder at work and get less from my headphones than I remembered. This V6 Vivid put an end to that. I am running it in a simple Douk U3 amp and it exceeds my hearing ability. Wide sweeping soundstage and great dynamics. Lol, this opamp cost about the same as the amp and headphones. But the sound is jaw dropping.

The sweet sound of tubes.

I put these in a Gustard P26 fed by a Denafrips ares II dac and I am blown away by the combo. The cymbals shimmer and it is very holographic. The soundstage is huge and it sounds very much like a high end tube preamp. I couldn't be more satisfied.
