You will be surprised by what Burson Audio has achieved with the Composer 3X Performance. Their discreet OP-Amps are easily the star of the show and Composer 3X Performance proves how much a proper implementation can lift and transform any DAC chipset performance. Add the Composer 3X Performance to your audio chain and hear the change instantly.
A NO-FRILLS AUDIO EXPERIENCE WITH THE BURSON COMPOSER 3X PERFORMANCE
Burson Audio is well known for challenging the conventional and pushing the boundaries of audio excellence through innovation. They are recognised in the audio industry for their use of discrete audio Opamps in the audio signal chain in their devices. They have also developed an award-winning proprietary Max Current Power Supply (MCPS) that is superior to both transformer-based and conventional switching power supply designs. Leveraging their expertise Burson Audio present the Composer 3X Performance. The Composer 3X Performance sounds incredible minus all the technical frills and delivers a life-like representation of your music and audio with its latest technology and advanced connectivity.
EQUIPPED WITH A HIGH-QUALITY SABRE DAC CHIP IN AN OLD SCHOOL DAC DESIGN
Burson Audio introduces the Composer 3X Performance, an old school DAC and Pre-Amp combination that does not use DSP to over-sample or reprocess the original digital signal. Burson Composer 3X Performance accurately presents audio from MP3s to native DSD512 without any colouring. Equipped with a powerful SABRE32/ESS9038Q2M DAC chip, a minimal signal path and a mighty power supply, the Composer 3X Performance follows an old school design approach, and it recreates the original art with pinpoint accuracy. This approach is unusual as many DACs utilise a tube output in parallel to a solid-state output to sweeten the analogue signal and attract eyeballs, but not the Composer 3X Performance.
OFFERS A MYRIAD OF CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS, INCLUDING BLUETOOTH AND USB-C
Burson Composer 3X Performance features superior digital connections. Embedded with a powerful Qualcomm CSR8675 Bluetooth receiver with LDAC and aptX HD support and playback support of up to 24bit/96khz, Composer 3X Performance supports Bluetooth 5.0 protocol pushing Bluetooth playback beyond CD quality and ease of use to the highest level. The Composer 3X Performance also features XMOS USB receiver chips with support for PCM 768kHz & DSD512 natively. With this XMOS chip, the Composer 3X Performance connects seamlessly with all PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices. For the output stage, you get XLR connection, RCA and for the input stage, you get 24bit 192k Coaxial and Toslink connectors. The inclusion of these technologies elevates the Burson Composer 3X Performance to the next level.
BALANCED SIGNAL PATH WITH OPAMP ROLLING AND PRE-AMP CAPABILITIES
The Burson Composer 3X Performance is a testimony to the less-is-more design approach. It utilises a short signal path to yield accuracy and transparency. The entire audio signal path of the Composer 3X Performance is about the size of two stamps. This symmetrical, fully balanced signal path is free from inferior IC Opamps. Instead, it uses Burson V6Vivid discrete Opamp, which is regarded for its sound. Burson highly encourages Opamp rolling, meaning is that you can change, upgrade and even try out various Opamps to suit your sonic taste. The Composer 3X allows Opamp rolling with gold plated DIP8 sockets along its signal path. The Composer 3X Performance is also a powerful Pre-Amp with low output impedance and two gain levels, making it the perfect match for any amplifiers and active speakers.
UTILISING BURSON’S PROPRIETARY MAX CURRENT POWER SUPPLY FOR CLEAN POWER
The Composer 3X Performance features the same Max Current Power Supply (MCPS) that has made the Conductor 3 Reference legendary. A technology developed, owned and used exclusively by Burson Audio, the MCPS raises voltage frequency from 50Hz to 170kHz, pushing noise beyond human hearing. This power supply overcame the disadvantages of both linear power supplies and conventional switching power supplies, resulting in incredible dynamic and micro-details. The Burson Composer 3X Performance utilises 4sets of MCPS, eliminating any cross-interference between the components.
EXPERTLY BUILT WITH MACHINED ALUMINIUM HEATSINK ENCLOSURE WITH A SCREEN
Burson Audio is known to transform devices from monsters with heat-fins into elegant, desktop-friendly machines, and they do it through the machined aluminium enclosure. The enclosure of the Burson Composer 3X Performance is made from high-quality aluminium. The machined aluminium enclosure has a minimal design and acts as a unified heat-sink, which is more efficient than many enclosures. The all-new screen and interface program deliver a calming and intuitive user experience. Its machined solid aluminium knob offers fine control and feels luxurious.
