This is reference sound right here - incredible mids with lifelike voices, bass is the same as the Sabre - quick and powerful, and the highs and the microdetails are still there (let's say -5% lower than the ESS Sabre).

Burson should put the PCM 1793 module as the default one and leave the ESS Sabre as optional for the LCD 2/HD650 users.

 

The sound signature out of my rig is EXACTLY what my pretentious/elitist ears are looking for, down to a nano meter. The first time you listen to the 1793 module - the "reality" of the music hits you right in your pleasure center of your brain. I still remember from last night - I was listening to the Little Dragon album and the voice of the singer was soo real, so sticky and sensual - it was out of this world. All I can say is - buy the module, try it for yourself if you have colder Headphones like HD800, LCD3 (yes they are pretty cold) and Fostex TH900

I find I get excellent results with the PCM 1796 in my Denon player.  It seems to suit the HD800 perfectly, no harsh highs, great soundstage and everything is just all THERE.  I don't seem to need another heap amp, my Creek is just fine.  If I wanted an all in one unit however I probably go with the Sennheiser HDVD 800, as that is made for the Senns cans but only contains an earlier, PCM 1792 chip I believe.

I heard that Burson will release a new batch of Conductor with small upgrades soon. Any more info about this?

Just got it. It says burson DAC requires too much power. Any experience with that? IPhone 5 on iOS 7. Thanks.

I use an iPhone 5 with iOS 7 and a Conductor with the CM6631 USB Module.  No similar Problems.  BUT Once or twice with iFiAudio iDSD Nano + a Portable Amp after a good number of hours.  I charged the iP5 and all went ok.

Burson released their new website : http://bursonaudio.com/creations/conductor/

 

I think they solved the issues they had before, including the download problems (with adware).

So did anyone find that supposed mention on their site of a conductor model update?

Good news

post #1529 of 1991

It's good news that they decorated their website, but I can't find the page where they used to sell the CM6631A USB module...
