ENJOY CLASS-A AUDIO EXPERIENCE WITH THE BURSON AUDIO SOLOIST 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 presents the Soloist 3X Performance. The Soloist 3X Performance is a balanced headphone amplifier with discreet and class-A circuitry to power the most demanding headphone. It powers through any demanding work with precision, reveals micro-details which makes music magical and unveils the emotional core within the rhythms.
EXPERIENCE ASTONISHING DRIVING CAPABILITY WITH THE PROPRIETARY POWER SUPPLY
Burson Audio Soloist 3X Performance is a vastly improved version of the original Soloist, released in 2015. Burson Audio Soloist 3X Performance takes up the concept of the original Soloist, including fully discrete circuitry, a resistor-based volume control (Ladder), and Class A amplification and upgrades to keep up with the times. The Soloist 3X Performance is capable of churning out 8000mW in XLR and 4000mW single-ended. This power enables the Soloist 3X Performance to drive headphones up to 110dB sensitivity without detectable current noise. To achieve such a high power output, Soloist 3X Performance includes 3 Maximum Current Power Supplies (MCPS) specially designed by Burson. These MCPS provide the Class A audio circuit with a large, clean and stable electrical signal.
UTILISING RESISTOR LADDER MUSES VOLUME CONTROLLER WITH THREE-LEVEL GAIN CONTROL
Burson Audio Soloist 3X Performance has been engineered with high-quality components for every aspect of its build. This quality is reflected in the volume control circuit. The Soloist 3X Performance uses the legendary MUSES72320 chip usually used in high-end devices. This resistor ladder circuit provides perfect channel balance, ensuring an incredible sound stage. In addition, this volume control is combined with three-level gain control and an input buffer stage. When combined with three levels of gain and our input buffer stage, the Soloist 3X Performance matches any headphone and loudspeaker amplifier perfectly. Although the MUSE72320 is an incredible volume controller, you can bypass it when your DAC or preamp controls volume. You can also use the Soloist X to boost the driving power of your favourite soundcard while centralising volume control from your favourite playback software or games.
EXPERTLY DESIGNED WITH OPAMP ROLLING CAPABILITY TO TAILOR THE SOUND AS YOU WANT
Burson Audio and the team of engineers working on the Soloist 3X Performance have carefully designed the audio architecture to support Opamp rolling. What this means is that you can change, upgrade and even try out various Opamps to suit your sonic taste. The Soloist 3X Performance comes with Burson V6 high-fidelity discrete Opamp, but Burson does not dictate your listening experience. The Soloist 3X Performance encourages Opamp rolling with gold plated DIP8 sockets along its signal path. With hundreds of audio opamps out there, you have the freedom to tailor your listening experience to your preference. The Burson Soloist 3X Performance energises every note and space in between, bringing accuracy and micro-details.
DURABLY 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 Soloist 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.

"I knew the newest Soloist 3X would outperform both Conductors in terms of sheer power and driver control. So far, this is the cleanest sounding all discrete Class-A amplifier I’ve tried."Read More
"Extremely powerful headphone amplifier on both balanced and unbalanced outputs. Three gain levels adjustable selector to accommodate all kind of headphones."Read More
Great upliftment to sound of my HD800s & other headphones. After being underwhelmed by Amp/Dac all in ones, I have realised a dedicated amplifier like this good one from Burson is absolutely necessary
Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings!
