The Conductor 3 checks all of my boxes – great design & aesthetics, a reference DAC plus the beloved amplifier section with the ability to drive even the most demanding headphones with authority, clarity and unmatched musicality. You think that HD 650 is a bore? Listen to it driven by the new Burson offering and prepare to review your position. Oh, did I mention that C3 has a class A preamp section AND bluetooth capabilities? This is THE standard in desktop audio in 2020.
