I am selling my awesome Burson Conductor DAC and Headphone amp. I have decided to sell as I am just not getting enough time listening to my desktop rig to justify the funds invested. My loss is your gain. This unit is in excellent shape. Purchased from the Headphone Bar here in Vancouver, the unit has been cared for in a smoke free home. I upgraded the USB Receiver with the updated Burson Tenor 8802 USB receiver. Lots of great reviews for this unit. The unit is in great shape with the only issue is a bit of popping with the discrete volume Pot at lower volumes. Not unusual for the Burton volume pot. I have the original box, packaging and manual for the unit as well. Will post pictures of my actual unit tomorrow, the current pics are from online reviews. Asking $800. Please send me an email with any questions.
Here is the summary from Burson: The DAC The ESS SABRE32 Reference DAC chip. 32-bit Hyper-stream DAC architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator technologyvthe SABRE32 is one of the best and most expensive DAC chips in the world and is truly reference class . Features the well regarded Soloist Headphone Amplifier. Burson had to deploy another 35W customised transformer to ensure that the Soloist circuitry is independent and optimised at all times. Burson didn't simply solder a piece of wire from the headphone output jack to create an unrefined preamp. The preamp output has been extracted from the voltage gain stage before the current gain section, to create a preamp that reflects the full potential of the FET output stage, and the less is more philosophy. 24bit/192khz Tenor TE8802 USB receiver working in Asynchronous Transfer Mode. Accepts coaxial and Toslink inputs supporting 32bit/192khz audio files. Accepts analogue input via RCA and outputs in 6.35mm headphone jack, line-level output (DAC) and variable output (preamp). Features a new Variable Output Stage (VOS), enabling the Conductor to match well with any type of headphone. Low Noise Power Supply An athlete needs clean air to perform at an optimum standard - audio equipment needs clean power to reproduce transparent and natural music. The new Conductor has taken the already fanatical IC free power supply of their first generation HA-160 to the next level. The result is even cleaner even more energetic music reproduction. Resonance Free Aluminum Enclosure The Conductor is housed in a 6mm case, constructed from high precision machined aluminum. This enclosure allows the Conductor, to achieve a very high mechanical damping factor, which reduces any microphonic effects, that may degrade the clarity of sonic performance. The enclosure was also constructed to act as a giant heat-sink, which allows the Class-A headamp to run cooler, and remain optimized at all times.
