New Burson Conductor 3.

Recommended Posts

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!

I purchased this on their initial pre-order. Stunning design and sound, well recommended.

The Conductor 3 Performance and 3X Performance will be available soon for $1,599 and $1,999. One DAC chip and no analog input, smaller footprint and other than that these should be right up there with their Reference siblings. I would like to listen to the 3P version but unfortunately no store will carry it here in Adelaide. Still deciding between the 3P and RME ADI-2 that I could get for a similar price. Looks wise Burson wins hands down but that German wonder box looks so good on paper with all them tuning options... What to do?

      Been going through the Gieseler DAC threads to dig up owners’ reviews & impressions over the past 2 few years.  Together, they provided an impressive picture of how well Clay has made his DACs and has lead me to consider  purchase the upcoming Groß DAC with balanced outputs.

      Item Condition: Virtually new 10/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Frankston State: Victoria Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Casn on pickup Reason for selling: Downsizing Further information:

      Tubadour III R2R NOS Tube DAC.
      RRP: $2140 AUD direct from USA manufacturer.
      Please ad 30% for shipping, import duty, tax and
      customs fees in Australia.
      Custom made for 230V.
      Only 1 month old - unexpected downsizing.
       
       
      From Audio Mirror:
       
      It is based on Analog devices AD1865N-K flagship DAC chip. This is the best and most analog and musical sounding DAC chip ever made.
      Tubes used in the DAC are 5977 subminiature tubes. They are mounted on a special tube adaptor, which is plugged into a regular 9 pin tube socket. You can just unplug the adaptor and use regular 9pin tubes, which can be any of the following tubes: 6N1P, 6DJ8, ECC88, 6922 and 6H23P. After experimenting with many tubes we found that 5977 is the best sounding tube for this application. Second best sounding tube is 6N1P. After all it’s a matter of taste. All the 9pin tubes mentioned above have almost twice the gain of 5977, therefore you will have twice higher output level from the DAC - around 2V. Expected tube life for 5977 subminiature tubes is  >5000 hrs.
       
      Specifications:
      Sample rates:
      S/PDIF, AES 44.1- 192kHz
      Optical/Toslink 44.1 - 96kHz
      DSD - converted by player to PCM "on the fly"
      Bit depth:
      Up to 24 bit over S/PDIF, AES, Toslink
      Dimensions: With 33cm x Depth 30cm x Height 8cm
        

      Stereotimes Review by Terry London:

      “In the last seven years, I have had numerous DACs in-house for listening
      and reviewing purposes. They ranged in price from $1,200 up to $25,000” 
      “Tubadour III SE DAC will compete with and will out-perform many DACs
      that cost tremendous amounts more on the market today. This DAC will
      be staying in my system. It is the new “benchmark” for me based on
      the details stated in the review.” 
       
       
      Superbestaudiofriends Review:
       
      “The Tubadour III possesses the X-factor that allows me to get
      goosebumps from certain musical passages, even if the rest of
      the chain is very modest in stature. It is very easy to listen for
      hours without fatigue and get sucked into the music.”
       
       
      Audiogon by Vassils, Comparison with Audio Note 5.1
      (cost 4 times more):
       
      "I saw that thread became active again, so let me post an update. 
      I built the Audio Note Kits DAC 5.1. I went nuts and put Duelund
      tinned copper caps, Vishay Z-foil resistors, expensive silver wire,
      silver WBT connectors, etc. etc. The list goes on. I am very happy
      with the result. No regrets that I sold my Terminator DAC. The
      sound  now is more dynamic, more analog, musical, better refined.
      The bass on the Terminator was always muddy, and now it is
      very well defined.  I guess it is a matter of personal preference.
      If crystal clear details is the most important thing for you, the
      Terminator may very well be a better choice. If you want to
      experience music and like to feel that the musicians
      are playing in your room, give the ANK 5.1, the new Audio Mirror
      DAC, or another well design AD1865 DAC a try. 
      After I gave the ANK 5.1 enough break-in time, I took my friend’s
      Audio Mirror DAC at home again and did a lot of A/B testing for
      over a week. Surprisingly (or not) they sounded so close that it
      was hard to believe I spent four times more money for my DAC.
      There were songs I could not pass an A/B test, and there were
      songs I could. I liked my ANK DAC better, but I still wonder if I
      tweaked the Audio Mirror DAC with better coupling caps,
      resistors, wire, connectors, etc. The difference between the
      two DACs was much smaller than the difference between the
      streamers in my system. Actually adding or removing the fiber
      media converters in my network probably made a bigger
      difference than the A/B between these two DACs. I think the
      difference in sound comes down to the different tubes these DACs
      use, the different coupling capacitors, and a couple minor things
      in their design - the ANK DAC has more sophisticated power
      supply, while the AM DAC may have a little better digital section,
      or at least that’s what I think the differences come from. 
      A person on another forum with a Terminator DAC contacted me
      and after chatting for a while, he ordered a custom Audio Mirror
      DAC with some upgrades I recommended (Duelund caps, Z-foils,
      and pretty much all the tweaks I made to my ANK DAC). Last I
      heard he sold his Terminator and was super happy with
      the AM DAC.  I am considering selling my ANK DAC and buying
      an Innuos server and an Audio Mirror DAC that I can tweak with
      my favorite sounding parts. I think I wouldhave better sound,
      because the source makes a big difference with these DACs.
      But it’s hard to replace the almost 40 lbs ANK box that is nearly
      the size of my PS Audio P20 Power Regenerator with the tiny
      little AM device that weights and costs a fraction of the ANK.
      It does not feel right :). Although I already know it "sounds" right :). 
      Hope that helps. I highly recommend both of these DACs.
      Audition whichever fits your budget if you can.”
