Sweet Mike and in my favorite color. I should have the Bryston BHA-1 shipped by the end of October.

Check out the Nighthawk by Cary Audio review in this month's TONEAudio, pg. 112.

I assume you got your answer by now, but the SLP-05 is not a very good headphone amp. Unlike its sound as a preamp (which is superb), its headphone section is not up to par. What's interesting is that my SLI80 sounds much better with headphones.

Dminches,

Welcome to AA and thank your for post. What headphone are you using with your audio equipment.

Just got a Nighthawk, and trying to modify it into a preamp. Is there anybody have done this before? Thanks.

You might contact Cary and ask what he thinks. I've always find Steve Witek to be excellent to deal with and another reason that I keep going back to Cary over the years. Their sound just works for me.
