Burson Conductor - DAC/amp successor to the HA-160D - Page 130

post #1936 of 1945
I see the C media chip will work for iOS 10 without a driver, so I need to see if this unit has the chip. If not I will send it back as I bought the unit through Amazon.

I m sorry..

Thank you! I have tried those instructions many times to no avail. If the Burson driver isn't loaded then I assume it is like it is not on the computer. I wish I knew Unix. I think the easiest solution is to send back this unit to get the Conductor Maestro that has the C media chip.

100 step volume control. Utilising the flagship volume control chip PGA3210 from Burr Brown VS 24 stepped attenuator.

Buy the old or wait the new?

Funny that they use Sabre32 chip with 32 bit built in volume control and opted to use a dedicated chip instead.

I just got this amp/dac 1793 chip and I'm not happy with the sounds of the q701 when its gets busy,mids are muffled and no separation (pop/rock). whats a better headphone to complete this amp/dac i feel I'm not doing this amp justice with the q701 and there is unleashed potential in better headphones.

A good next step is the Senn 650's. I then jumped all the way to the Audeze LCD-3's, so I skipped a few steps in the middle. Really liked the Alpha Dog Primes that I heard at the RMAF/CanJam, so it's well worth a listen, especially for a closed HP.

Enjoy!

Thanks for your reply, I'm quite happy to spend a bit more something in between the dogs and the 650 for now anyway lol already spent a bit on this puppy and looking into a decent usb and power cable. Are the 700's any good I'm doing a bit of research now is it really a classical can as I don't listen to that and i have read that some people dont hold them high regard

The Senn I preferred is the HD800, as many people don't love the 700. However, as always individual preferences and experiences can and do vary widely! I really liked the "house-sound" of the Audeze's, so I went full-force in that direction. 

 

I'd recommend trying out as many HP's as you can. If you don't have the ability to do this locally at a shop or with other Head-Fiers (the CanJam's are the best place in the world to try out gear!), and if you live in the US you can also try a service that does short-term rentals of headphones. I'm not sure if I'll get in trouble for naming the company here, but do a Google search for "headphone lending library" and you'll learn much more about it. I used them to trial some LCD-X's before I went with my LCD-3's and it worked really well. 

 

Happy listening!

i have been reading and recommend the Alessandro MSPro or Beyer T90 for their neutral sound and have any excessive sounds that are over bearing. sounds promising to me. i noticed t90 have a Jubilee 90th Anniverary worth the extra 200?
