DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.


Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

Optical Toslink

Volume Controls

If your DAC & Amps include volume controls or volume rockers, you can easily change the volume with a button press or volume knob turn.

DAC & Amps that have volume controls make its operation incredibly simple; turn up the volume on your smartphone or your source devices and then change the volume on DAC & Amps to the desired level.

This design feature allows you to have complete control over the desired volume according to your listening preferences.

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.

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.

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.
