I'm from Headfi and new to speakers
I have the Burson Conductor driving my Sennhiser HD 650 Headphones, and don't want to spend more on a receiver unless absolutely required.
I will be using the LS50's with my computer to listen to my FLAC music collection, mostly vocal.
Thank you very much.
I can't post a link to the Burson Audio Conductor LS S9018 because I'm new here.
Welcome to AVS!
The Burson Audio Conductor LS S9018 is a DAC for driving headphones. I can't see any analogue outputs that would allow it to drive a separate amp and the LS50 speakers.
There is also no bass management function that would allow integration with a sub. The LS50 design in the white paper has the frequency roll off starting from 100Hz and the -3dB rating is around 80Hz. The driver will start to distort below this.
Afraid you'll need at least a receiver to drive the LS50 as the low cost option.
