Burson Conductor - DAC/amp successor to the HA-160D - Page 117

post #1741 of 1836
Thanks monta! So would you say that both are equally good in some respects, just that if you want a more laid back and musical sound you'd go for the concero and if you want a more detailed and in your face sound you'd go for the burson?
post #1742 of 1836
Yep!
Actually the only thing that miss in the concero are a bit of bass..
post #1743 of 1836
Cool thank you for the reply. But did you get the concero just for the usb connection? If that's the case why not opt for smth like the audiobyte hydra or the audiophileo?
post #1744 of 1836
I initially bought to use it as dac
Then it arrived the conductor ..and it became the converter!
Concero is very small and portable: I'm using it as a dac in my main living system now as well

Cool. Thanks so much for the insight bro! Gonna get the Conductor soon. I think it'd be a big upgrade from my current makeshift rig which is the ALO Island. Can't wait!

I would choose the concero!!!
Ahahahaha 😁
Ciaoooo
post #1747 of 1836

the conductor really shines with low impedance cans !!! th900 and lcd-x highly recommended !!!

 

italo-disco eurobeat never sounded so good !!! hehe

 

a sane endgame for me, for now... :tongue:

Sure no worries mate. But in your opinion would be Conductor be pretty versatile?

post #1753 of 1836

the denon ah-d5000/7000 are 25ohm and 106/108 dB/mW

 

the fostex th-900 are 32ohm and 100dB/mW

 

the lcd-x at 22ohm 96dB/mW really got owned by the conductor, so the denon must be good too to pair with the conductor/soloist

 

the lcd2.2 2011 and lcd3 2013 sounded really good too but their 50ohms and the lower sensitivity were quite a challenge for the conductor, which became evident when i plugged the lcd-x

 

and i feel that the conductor's neutral sabre dac plus its neutral soloist amp are extremely revealing of even the slightest lack of power when driving more difficult loads, since the violectric v800/v200 while having almost the same power specs at 50ohms, because of the warmer presentation where perceived more powerful

 

with the hd800 it was even more evident since the v800/v200 have more than 3x the power at 300ohm, but i still preferred the conductor for the hd800 because it accentuated the hd800's strong points, soundstage, neutrality and detail, while not being harsh, the same way i liked better the 50ohm lcd3 with the violectric

 

so it definitively is not all about power but...

 

the conductor is such a win win with the th-900 / lcd-x, lots of power, control, details and transparency, all in one package

 

if only the pot had double the steps, heaven !

depends what you want in terms of sound signature and features, in terms of power it's among the best buy options, other that comes in mind are audio-gd, violectric, but those have quite different sound

Thanks for the input, I like clarity and smooth/silky kind of sound. Heard about the smaller soundstage issues with the vioelectric though.

th-900/lcd-x . That's a very good point. I wonder how many other headphones would have great synergy with the Conductor. I too feel like the LCD3's are a bit hard for the Conductor to drive.
