Powerful and Transparent
No other headphone amp offers as much power with so few components in the signal path as the Burson Soloist. Conventional headphone amplifier designs use IC op-amps in the signal path. Since each op-amp contains over 50 low-quality components, most of them not even required for audio playback, these packed-together chips distort the audio signal, it’s in their nature. The Soloist is perfectly tailored with a symmetrical current feedback circuit with only 21 components in the signal path explaining the wonderful sound.
The Conductor Virtuoso
The Conductor Virtuoso is a USB DAC, Headphone Amp and Preamplifier. Most enthusiasts use its DAC and amplifier to drive their prized headphones with one beautifully-built, modestly-priced component. With over 4 watts of power on tap the Conductor Virtuoso will drive any headphone with ease. The Conductor Virtuoso’s headphone amp section is essentially the Soloist which reviewers have raved about. Or use the Conductor Virtuoso’s preamp functions to make it the center of a headphone and speaker-based desktop system with headphone option.
You can choose from two interchangeable DAC boards with different sonic characteristics and the modular design makes for no-fuss upgrades. As always, Burson eschews densely-packed opamps and designs all discrete circuitry for superior tonality, clarity and a lower noise floor.
DAC Options: ESS9018 DAC or PCM1793 DAC

|In addition to the the units highlited here , Both Lehman and Burson make a whole series of headphone amps ranging from $ 350.00 on up to match any budget and headphone.
|The LUXMAN DA-200 is a unique combination of a pure class A analogue preamplifier, digital analogue converter with a USB input and finally a pure class A headphone amplifier .
Using the superb digital analogue conversion & analogue output stages of the D-05 CD/ SACD player; the DA-200 delivers the same rich, silky smooth sound quality that made the D-05 famous. Here is a non-fatiguing sound that allows music lovers to enjoy music for hours on end without incurring listener fatigue. It was achieved by adopting the Burr-Brown PCM1792A DAC chip, which marries both high resolution audio and the rich, musical sound quality that has been the hallmark of Luxman design for almost ninety years.
With Luxman that is just the beginning.because this Japanese Audio Purist company offers 5 other headphone amplifiers ranging from $1500 to $ 5000,00
including the amazing Luxman P-700 which outputs an injcredible 8 watts per channel!
Luxman went back to the drawing board to develop a true reference headphone amplifier. Using the best materials on hand as well as implementing their best technology , the P-700u is the finest headphone amplifier that Luxman have ever made by a wide margin.
The P-700u is a fully balanced design that incorporates four channels of the LECUA 1000-WM high precision electronically controlled attenuator and incorporates the latest revision of ODNF 3.0A audio circuit . This compact version of the LECUA 1000-WM volume control (LUXMAN Electric Controlled Ultimate Attenuator with Weight Matrix Technology) is configured to electrically block electromagnetic (EMI) and radio frequency (RFI) interferences. The output signal is attenuated without introducing artifacts inherent in conventional volume controls, thereby resulting in constant output impedance, high signal-to-noise ratio, a uniform frequency response and lower distortion.
LECUA Volume Control
This is LUXMAN's first pure class A headphone amplifier to benefit from the C1000f in that they use a variation of the LECUA 1000 volume control. At any single volume setting only a few resistors are in circuit per channel. The less devices in the signal path, the purer the sound, the cleaner the music.
At low listening levels, potentiometers have trouble keeping both channels in balance, so one channel might easily be 3dB louder than the other. With the volume control made of discrete parts, this is no longer an issue.
