BURSON AUDIO CONDUCTOR 3X PERFORMANCE - A FIRESTARTER DELIVERING EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE
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.
CLASS-LEADING AUDIO ARCHITECTURE EQUIPPED WITH SABRE32 DAC QUALCOMM/CSR8675 CHIPSETS DELIVERING HIGH FIDELITY AUDIO
Burson Audio has a reputation for building some of the most elegant and high-performing DAC & Amps. Conductor 3X Performance follows the same suit and is equipped with the industry-leading SABRE32 ESS9038 DAC and XMOS USB receiver chips. The ESS9038 is capable of decoding DSD 512 and PCM 768kHz files effortlessly for a high fidelity listening experience. The USB receiver comes with a bespoke driver from Thesycon, Germany. The result is unrivalled processing power, capable of flawlessly reproducing DSD512 and 32bit/768kHz audio. The Conductor 3X Performance is also equipped with a Qualcomm/CSR8675 Bluetooth 5.0 receiver, supporting aptX HD audio codecs. It takes Bluetooth playback to new heights in terms of sound quality and ease of use.
FEATURES 6W CLASS A AMPLIFICATION STAGE COUPLED WITH MCPS TECHNOLOGY AND 1 OPPM LOW JITTER CLOCK TO DELIVER A PHENOMENAL AUDIO EXPERIENCE
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.
CUSTOMISE YOUR SOUND WITH OPAMP ROLLING CAPABILITIES AND EQUIPPED WITH DISCRETE HI-FIDELITY V6 VIVID OPAMPS
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.
HEADPHONE AMP, PREAMP & DAC WITH ELITIST REMOTE VOLUME CONTROL AND A WIDE RANGE OF INPUT-OUTPUT CAPABILITIES
It is a Powerful Class A headphone amp delivering a power output of 6W XLR (balanced) and 3W Single-ended. Embedded with one Stereo XLR Input, a quarter-inch headphone jack, and 3.5mm microphone input, it also comprises MIC Input BYPASS functionality which takes gaming to levels that gamers have never experienced before. Burson Audio Conductor 3X performance has a wide array of buttons like on-off, input and output selectors settings, and flip the screen button. Conductor 3X Performance has a monochrome LED screen and a volume knob that offers increments of volume level with 99 steps. On the back, you will find two pairs of XLR, Coaxial, optical, USC C, Bluetooth antenna and RCA outputs for easy connections, and since it can work as a preamplifier you will find a pair of XLR and RCA analogue outputs.
THE COOL CASE AND MACHINED ALUMINIUM HEATSINK ENCLOSURE PROVIDE A CLASS-LEADING BUILD QUALITY
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.
