Burson has once again reinvented the wheel with their brand new headphone amp and DAC. While maintaining the same size as the Burson HA-160D, the new Burson Conductor is a headphone amp and DAC with a streamlined performance focused preamp. The DAC features the ESS SABRE32/ES9018 chip which is one of the best in the world. The USB receiver is now 24bit/192khz/Asynchronous. The headphone amp is the Burson 4wpc soloist and preamp is also significantly improved over its predecessor. The Burson Conductor will be available in November at a retail price of $1850.
