Burson Audio - Conductor SL 1793 - Headphone Amplifier and DAC Reviews

Pros: Wide soundstage, airy midrange, well controlled bass

Cons: A little bit on the arm side so headphone match should be considered with that in mind

Bass and upper bass well controlled. Prat could be a bit better but other than that this unit is sheer perfection. Paired with my Sennheiser HD600's I'm very happy.
