Product Description

JaguarAudioDesign.com is an authorized retailer for Burson Audio products in North America.

Burson Audio has just released the new Conductor V2+, with superior sound and more power, setting a new benchmark in the reference class category. This is a major performance upgrade from the Conductor Virtuoso (V1).

Thanks to a new high density winding technique, the new power transformers that support the headphone amp and preamp section are able to output twice as much power as the Conductor V1.

The entire circuitry has been redesigned based on the new Burson V5 SS opamp, arguably one of the best sounding audio opamps in the world. While still a pure Class ­A designed with Field Effect Transistors, Conductor V2+ fully utilizes two 70W transformers to output over 8200 mW per channel into 16ohm. It will comfortably drive the toughest headphone in the world while delicately handling the most sensitive.

The PGA2310 is the flagship volume control chip offered by Texas Instruments.  With an impressive dynamic range of 120dB and 0.0004 THD measurement, it is the go to solution for pro audio applications and broadcast studios, allowing for a 0.5dB per step of fine control to Conductor V2+.  With the PGA2310 the Conductor V2+ operates smoothly and silently with no mechanical moving parts.  It will serve you seamlessly for years to come!

 

 conductor v2+ sabre

 

The Sabre32 DAC is one of the most expensive and highest performing DAC chip in the world.  For the new Conductor V2+ Burson had to completely redesign all the support circuits around the Sabre chip in order to take its performance to a new high.  The new output stage of the DAC has been improved based on the new V5 SS audio opamp.  Pure Class A, the new output stage with the V5 opamp DNA is able to reveal amazing micro dynamics.

The new DAC design also utilize the DSP Volume control that is built in the Saber 32 DAC. Such arrangement means when using with any digital inputs, volume control is handled by the Saber 32 DAC, bypassing our the PGA2310 volume control.  

 

conductor v2+ xmos

The V2+ includes the flagship XMOS 6 core USB module is considered by many to be the best digital interface on the market. The XMOS module allows for 32bit 346k sample and DSD 256 streaming. The Conductor V2 implementation employs triple low jitter clock structure for the highest level of jitter correction. The XMOS interface offer the highest level of connectivity from desktop Windows based system and OSX to major mobile platform like IOS and androids. The conductor V2 will allow you to playback your digital content with the highest level of fidelity regardless of the operating platform.

Burson Conductor Review (20:33)
Pricing and availability: http://bit.ly/burson-conductor (affiliate link). Review of Burson Conductor -- top of the line headphone amplifier, preamplifier and digital to analog converter. This unit was lent to me by Norwegian importer Moiz Audio, and I had it for over 3 months. Burson conductor features a whopping 4 Watt maximum output, is a dual mono design and it's fully discrete, meaning no operational amplifiers in the circuit. The Burson Conductor is also modular, so you can upgrade the Tenor 8802 USB receiver module by swapping in CM6631A. Furthermore, if you do not like the DAC9018 DAC card with ESS SABRE32 chip, you can swap it out with the more polite and analog sounding 1793 DAC module which leverages the good old PCM1796 Burr Brown DAC chip.
