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.

Burson Audio is challenging normalcy by pushing the boundaries of audio excellence via innovation. They're known in the audio industry for using discrete audio opamps in their products' audio signal chain. Burson Audio developed its own Max Current Power Supply (MCPS), which is embedded in all of its products. It needed a herculean effort to design an amplifier that was sleek and capable of delivering audiophile-grade performance. You'll never want to add another machine to your desktop with Conductor 3X Performance at your table. It is the ultimate all-in-one, proving that something so simple to use can deliver full-range sound and supreme performance. Burson Audio has done it again with the all-new Conductor 3X Performance.

The first and most profound impression of the Conductor 3X Performance is its overwhelming energy. The Burson Conductor 3X Performance pushes 6W Class A XLR, 3W SE (XP) and 6W Class A SE (3P). It energises every note and space with absolute control and accuracy. By incorporating a balanced design the Conductor 3X Performance achieves ultra-low output impedance. The Conductor 3X Performance is an excellent improvement for single-ended audio systems. The Conductor Performance features the same Max Current Power Supply (MCPS) 3 sets that have made the Conductor 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. It completely overcomes the disadvantages of both linear power supplies and conventional switching power supplies, resulting in incredible dynamic and micro-details. It features a 1 OPPM low jitter clock to reduce distortion at high volumes delivering a soothing experience.

Burson rose to prominence as a designer and manufacturer of opamps for studio and OEM applications. Burson's current series of opamps, such as the flagship V6 Vivid, is distinguished by discrete components rather than on-chip electronic devices. The V6 Vivid discrete opamps are recognized as the best in the world and are widely used in recording studios. The Conductor 3X performance achieves transparency by using three V6 Vivid opamps per channel. The V6 Vivid is lively, dynamic, and transparent. Its remarkable dynamic range and three-dimensional soundstage are magical. The Solid-State V6 Vivid opamps are used in the input and line-level output stages, and thanks to the DIP8 sockets soldered on the motherboard, anyone can replace them for different audio opamps, which is fantastic for opamp rollers. Burson Audio, on the other hand, does not dictate your listening experience. It does, however, cater to your preferences by allowing you to modify the opamps, allowing you to customise your listening experience. With hundreds of audio opamps to choose from, you may customise your listening preference.

Let's be honest most audio equipment cases are unsightly and inconvenient. Exposed screws, sharp corners, and poor colours are common. Burson added a much superior Cool Case on this one, which is much better at heat dissipation. On the surface, it appears similar to its all-in-one brother, the Conductor 3X Reference. Burson rebuilt its case from the ground up, making the most of every interior square inch. It's packed with some of the best components and housed in a gleaming aluminium shell. Its fins increased its surface area, acting as a massive heat sink. All the screws on Burson's rear panel are hidden, giving it a significantly cleaner appearance. Naturally, the case was machined using a CNC machine, revealing the raw aluminium finish that complements the device perfectly. It has some good rubber feet underneath it. Conductor 3X Performance has an elegant build that gives you the confidence of a device lasting for the years to come. It also comprises Elna aluminium electrolytic capacitors and Dale Melf Resistors.
