New Burson Conductor 3.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just thought I'd put up a post to draw attention to Burson's new offering.

Looks very nice, although I will admit to being a little confused about the power supply description.

Great to see Burson back in the frey - 7.5W of class A! WOW! Shouldn't have an issue driving a pair of Susvaras or Avante Gardes! LOL!

      Item: Audio Note DAC 2.1 level C 
      Location: St Kilda VIC
      Price: 1700
      Item Condition: Used
      Reason for selling: Surplus
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Can post.
      Extra Info:
       
      Audio Note Kits DAC 2.1 level C.  Audio Note's highly regarded 1x oversampling approach with an Analogue Devices 1865 dac chip and transformer coupling.  These DACs are as musical as all get out and often referred to as having that "analogue" sound.
       
      For a time this was known as the DAC 3.1 and now the closest new kit is the DAC 2.1 Signature. Currently US $1650 as a kit.
       
      This is an early kit so it still contains Audio Note parts.  It is built with genuine Audio Note Tantalum resistors, and in the power supply a combination of Audio Note copper, Kasei (newly upgraded) and Black Gate capacitors, and Mundorf M-Tube caps. Signal board caps are Black Gate and Jupiter bees wax signal caps. Valves are all relatively new and currently Tung-Sol 6x5, Phillips 5687, and Siemens ECL 82.
       
      A USB board is available from ANKits and there is plenty of potential to tinker with these to get the sound dialed-in to your liking. Configured with AES and BNC inputs which could easily be changed to an RCA.

      Item: Naim DAC-V1  - DSD DAC, Class A Head Amp, Preamp
      Location: Sydney Inner West
      Price: $1,150 plus postage
      Item Condition: 9.5/10
      Reason for selling: no longer needed
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This is a spectacular, versatile DAC offer from Naim which is a current model retailing for $3,150, although Melbourne HI-FI has an EX display model now for $2,400
      https://www.stereophonic.com.au/naim-dac-v1-digital-to-analogue-converter/
      https://www.melbournehifi.com.au/collections/dac/products/naim-audio-dac-v1-ex-display
       
      It provides:
      - DSD DAC via USB
      - 24/192 via optical, BNC and coax (has 5 inputs)
      - Class A Headphone Amplifier - It has been my reference amp  to drive my Focal Utopias, plenty of power, clean and engaging sound (typical Naim signature)
      - Fully analogue, digitally controlled pre-amplifier with RCA and Naim proprietary outputs
      - Linear power supply
      - Remote control
       
      The unit was purchased from Stereonet about 5 months ago. I initially purchase it for use as headphone amplifier, but it was so good that I sold my other DAC and preamplifier and made this the corner stone of my system. I am now downgrading pretty much all my system to collect some cash which is needed for unexpected circumstances not related to hi-fi.
       
      This DAC received 5 stars of What hifi and "best buy" on The Ear.
      These are some reviews:

      The unit presents as new, no marks or scratches. I dont have the original box but given the compact size it can be packed very safely and easily in a different box (I can use the one it was posted to me in)
       
      This is the original AD from Stereonet.
      (Note that there are no marks what so ever on it, as it would appear from the photo in the old AD. I will add some extra photos tomorrow.)

      Item: Mytek Brooklyn DAC
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $1,400
      Item Condition:  Excellent
      Reason for selling:  Changed tack - gone fully active
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Mytek named this the Brooklyn DAC - but it a lot more than that.  It is an excellent and very flexible DAC, and one of the first to support MQA, and with multiple filter profiles.  The specs in the picture below spell out better than I can the formats supported (up to 32 Bit, 384 MHz plus DSD) with output through RCA or XLR.  It is also a very flexible analog / digital Preamp, including phono equalisation, and excellent headphone amp.  All in one small package with an extremely versatile and informative digital display, and remote control of volume and key functions.
       
      Short form Stereophile review can be found here:  
      https://www.stereophile.com/content/mytek-hifi-brooklyn-da-processor%C2%96headphone-amplifier
      There is a longer print version from their magazine with more detailed technical view I can provide to anyone interested.  There are also many other reviews around.
       
      I bought this from a fellow SNA'r a couple of years back and have found it awesome.  Only selling (along with valve and solid state amps, speakers) as I have moved to an all-in-one active system.  You will find a lot of recent information on the DAC+ update - having listened to both I tend to agree with the reviewers that DAC+ is a small step up, but not one that justifies the premium of buying new.
       
      I have original packaging and am happy to post at purchasers expense
