Rock just doesn't kick quite as much. 

 

What gain are people using with Audeze?


+ 100 !

 

High gain 11-12 o'clock and 2 o'clock for old rock if I want to rock hard with LCD-3 :gs1000smile:

This is as high as I'll go on medium gain with the HE-500 - a less efficient headphone than the LCD-3. You'll go deaf :-)

I'm about 2 o'clock as well on the Conductor on High Gain. Hope that's not too loud to blow my eardrums out

No problem, I heard they are working on some audiophile ear implants :))

Wow, on high gain I can only listen at like 10 o clock.

What headphones are you using it with? 10 o'clock on mine with the LCD-2's doesn't seem nearly loud enough to me.

LCD3s.

I find low gain more detailed and high gain more ambience. I choose deppending on what I want to hear at each listening. Sometimes I prefer the medium gain to get a bit of each world

Now I see that your question was for Audeze users. I'm using Senn HD800. I don´t know if for Audeze the results are the same.

Are you the same guy who makes the YouTube videos? How do you find the Conductor in comparison to the Auralic Taurus? I'm just curious because I was thinking of getting a Taurus myself at some point in the future.

Youtube? Haha. Have only had very little time with Burson Conductor yet, as it arrived yesterday morning. Taurus MKI is apparently quite different compared to MKII. The latter is said to be brighter but I haven't heard it. I believe Burson to be a little more rolled off in the highs compared to Taurus MKI. Vocals on digital recordings seem a little more natural with Conductor, and it appears a bit "slower" or smoother sounding than Taurus. MKI is edgy and more detailed, especially when running it balanced.

 

A guy who did AB Taurus MKI and Mjolnir on LCD-3 says the differences are quite minute, but that Taurus is better by a hair, but we all know the law of diminishing returns :)

Oh, and the above is based on Conductor with the CM6631A USB Module. I quickly tried using Conductor as a DAC for Woo Audio WA2, and found the sound of WA2 to be rounder and warmer than when compared to that of Mytek 192 STEREO DSD DAC. Had a very brief try of Mytek into Burson too, but not for very long so I'll try more of that to determine if it is the amp or the DAC in Burson which seem to make the sound so round and smooth. Taurus MKI seems to have quicker bass.

 

Will also try the Burson as a DAC and preamp in the stereo, where I currently use Mytek.
