Ex-demo model, boxed. Now discontinued.
The Conductor SL(9018) is a concentrated version of our new benchmark, the Conductor. Its DNA is identical to the Conductor and it exists for one purpose only. That is to be one of the best DAC/headphone amplifiers 2 in 1 in the world.
Just like the Conductor, the Conductor SL(9018) is completely discrete in design. (IC free). It features the same 21 component Field Effect Transistor input stage and the same discrete power supply network which brought popularity to the original. Assembled with the same high end components and operating in pure Class-A, the Conductor SL(9018) carries the same sonic signature which has been described as the utmost in organic and transparency.
At 210mm * 220mm * 80mm it sits elegantly on any desktop. But with 2 Watts per channel into 8ohm, the Conductor SL (9018) is one of the most powerful headphone amp in the world. It is capable of driving most if not all headphones to their full potential. Coupled with a 2 level gain switch, it offers infinite flexibility.
The Conductor SL (9018) is housed in a refined and precision folded 2 mm aluminium casing that is unmistakably Burson. This case also works as a singular heat-sink for the entire machine ensuring stable and optimized performance at all times. This case really puts the conventional 1 mm folded steel case and generic heat fins to shame.
