Which happens to be my favorite combination of what I own, with most of my music. I just didn't write this!  

Well you probably all too well know how this hobby goes...

Shush already!!

 

Hehe...  Nope, not going back to the HD800, no-no-no!!

A bird whispered to me that all new Conductors have a new USB board which fixes all problems. I just got one from the new batch and it seems to work perfectly. I'll make sure to post here if any problems arise.

P.S: 160D doesn't complement the HD800s well but the Conductor takes them to a whole new level.

Are the usb bugs with the conductor only coming from computers running windows? I plan on using this with a macbook air, so should I expect these bugs as well?

Haven't heard of driver issues running mac. Only in windows X64.

Hello,

I know this is the section for amps, but there seems to be a lot of debate about DACs so here it goes.  I currently have a gamma2 and am in the market for an upgrade for my LCD-2s.  My budget is around $700 and I don't mind buying used or demo equipment.  It would be connected to my computer, so it would need to have a usb input.  Even if it doesn't I was thinking about investing in an audio gd DI-V3 anyway, since not many usb inputs accept 24/192.  Any and all suggestions would be amazing.

Thanks in advance. biggrin.gif

He asked for a DAC not amp.

If you're running SE, you could give the Resonessance Labs Concero a shot. Forum impressions say that it punches above its level and has a small footprint. Has a decent Dac section, plus sound shaping filters which you can control with an apple remote. $599+shipping from Canada...and I even saw one on sale here a few days ago in the "for sale" section.

I'm running one with the NFB-2.32 dac, very nice combo. IMO, Smooth clear highs, great mids,

thumping bass, nice detail, but perhaps not as detailed as some set-ups, but forgiving enough to

let Pandora and Spotify sound really good. I Really need to update my source material.

With both the Resonessance Labs Concerto and Advance Aucoustics MDX600 would you guys suggest that I get the DI-V3 and bypass their usb inputs?  Also I hear such good things about the Schiit Bifrost.  How do these compare to it?

I wouldn't say it is necessary. Do keep in mind that I do not yet own the Concero, but my recommendation is based on the opinions of forum members whose opinions are highly regarded. The Concero's USB implementation seems to be quite robust and it can perform the same optical-usb conversion duties as the DI-V3.

I know you said DAC only but I want to comment that I recently started using an NFB 10.32 and I have all the reasons in the world to not like this thing, but it's probably one of my favorite amps for the LCD-2 as of now. For $600 and the ability to control volume from across the room while I do laundry or heck while watching movies from the comfort of my bed is awesome.

I do that with my W4S DAC-2's remote.....Nice and lazy!
