The Conductor preamp and USB DAC and Timekeeper power amplifier have just blown me away. The 160DS was a great head amp, but the Conductor is truly brilliant. Using it as a DAC running from my PC with the upgraded USB module produces an amazing soundscape that I have been losing myself in as much as possible. The Timekeeper I have running from it is a stellar power amp, solidly rendering what feels like pure transparency from the Conductor’s DAC and preamp through my B&W 685’s. Really loving this setup, I am just immersed in the music and forgetting about the gear.
