    Dual DAC and dual mono design :L3000:Yes please! So far I'm quite pumped and can't wait to have a listen to it.

    Before you ask, I don't know what the "tetris button" does.

    Wow, as a previous Conductor (V1) owner I am really interested about this one

    I can already hear Burson saying 'no more Mr. Nice Guy'. :dt880smile:

    'Tetris' button is probably related to the display in case you want to flip your Conductor.

    ps. Dat design though..:astonished:

    I like it.

    Yep, makes sense buddy.

    I should have a full size pic probably at the end of this week. I am curious myself how they managed to make it 300% more heat efficient.

    Finally an XLR hp output from Burson?

    Another DAC/amp with no EQ and no Crossfeed?

    Good thing too as we have such a shortage of those... not.

    I’m a big fan of Burson. They make amazing gear. I was hoping they would replace the V2/V2+. But I was hoping it would be something with balanced in’s and out’s. Nevertheless, the specs look outstanding.

    I’m on the pre-order list for Headamp’s GSX mini but this has caught my attention:eye:

    I am interested, as I like the burson sound. They have to fix their amp impedance issues with low impedance cans/iems and the background hissing, especially at this price.

    I have owned four burson device and their customer service is the best I have encountered.

    i have a playmate and i´m happy but my headphone deserves more. of course this new conductor on paper is awesome.

    I have a conductor V2+ with power amp Timekeeper. They are brilliant and I am quite excited about V3. Specially their new power supply design is very inspiring and intriguing!
  15. alota
    agree. i hope quality control of pcb is better compared to playmate
