Review Highlights:

“I found it to be very musical, which is the result of its harmonic spectrum.”

‘The first thing I noticed was how much power the Virtuoso has. The (HiFiMan) HE-560’s are less sensitive than the PM-1’s, but I didn’t have to crank the volume control more than about half way up to get the volume I wanted.”

“Brahms’ “Intermezzo” is one of his most famous short piano solo studies. It is very romantic, and a bit sombre, but incredibly beautiful. I’m sure you would recognize it even if you are not a classical music aficionado. Through the Virtuoso, it can bring one to tears, and I had to fight them back. I listened to it over and over again, and finally had to get up and rest because it made me feel so sad, remembering a recent death in the family. Yet, it brought me peace as well.”

“The Burson Audio Conductor Virtuoso is a fine headphone amplifier. It produces a musical sound quality similar to tube products, and therefore, the warm sound will be appreciated by many. At $1,995 it has plenty of competitors, but its unique sound quality will encourage many consumers to get out their credit card upon listening to it.”
