I have the Burson Conductor and I've been experimenting with it to get it to sound warmer/bassier. Well I think I might have found a solution, but I don't understand why.
As you can see, it has three power output settings with the following measurements at "1Khz line level input with 30ohm output impedance" --
Low power is 7.7db preamp output and 0.18W headphone amp output;
Medium is 13.7db 0.7W respectively
High is 18.2db 4W.
These are on p. 5 of the manual
The Conductor also has this weird volume knob
Any way, comparing the two settings below, I think they both have the same overall volume, but #2 is warmer sounding and bassier. Does anyone know why?
#1 -- Power set at highest (level three), volume on Conductor at 50%, volume on computer set at 38/100.
#2 -- Power set at middle level (level 2), volume on Conductor at 100%, volume on computer set at 16/100.
Why would these two settings output the same volume, but different levels of warmth?
