Burson Audio Conductor Virtuoso DAC1 ESS9018 DAC and Headphone Preamp

  • The less the equipment tampers with the music, the greater the music becomes. This has been the core design philosophy of Burson Audio since 1996. If the equipment is honest and transparent then the proper tempo, dynamics and tone will materialize as a natural expression of the music and it becomes unnecessary to flavor the original sound. We believe that this ideal can never be achieved through standard circuitry building blocks such as opamps, IC regulators or even standard transformers. Instead we work towards this ideal through the research and development of customized solid state circuitries that are developed specifically to suit our applications. Only then will each and every component involved be pushed to their performance peak. And only then will the end result be consistent with our idealism.The Conductor Virtuoso is a USB DAC, Headphone Amp and Preamplifier. Most enthusiasts use its DAC and amplifier to drive their prized headphones with one beautifully-built, modestly-priced component. With over 4 watts of power on tap the Conductor Virtuoso will drive any headphone with ease. The Conductor Virtuoso's headphone amp section is essentially the Soloist which reviewers have raved about. Or use the Conductor Virtuoso's preamp functions to make it the center of a headphone and speaker-based desktop system with headphone option.

      Are you able to give any reference to the new products coming out of China? Like the Yulong D200 or Gustard X20, or Audio GD's products?
      I'm a fan of Burson Audio, and wondering how they stack up against Asian competition.
