Product Highlights

    The Burson Family

    The less the equipment tampers with the music, the greater the music becomes. This has been the core design philosophy of Burson Audio since 1996. If the equipment is honest and transparent then the proper tempo, dynamics and tone will materialise as a natural expression of the music and it becomes unnecessary to flavour the original sound. We believe that this ideal can never be achieved through standard circuitry building blocks such as opamps, IC regulators or even standard transformers. Instead we work towards this ideal through the research and development of customised solid state circuitries that are developed specifically to suit our applications. Only then will each and every component involved be pushed to their performance peak. And only then will the end result be consistent with our idealism.

    Soloist DNA

    The Soloist SL is a concentrated version of our award–winning Soloist. Its circuitry is identical to the Soloist but at At 5.5in x 3in x 8in it takes less room on your desktop. The power output is a robust 2Wpc into 16 ohms and drives most if not all headphones to their full potential. Coupled with a 2–level gain switch the Soloist SL offers infinite flexibility.

    Powerful and Transparent

    No other headphone amp offers as much power with so few components in the signal path as the Soloist. Conventional headphone amplifier designs use IC op–amps in the signal path. Since each op-amp contains over 50 low–quality components, most of them not even required for audio playback, these packed–together chips distort the audio signal, ita??s in their nature. The Soloist is perfectly tailored with a symmetrical current feedback circuit with only 21 components in the signal path explaining the wonderful sound.

    Sustained Peak Performance

    Burson's oversize transformers and power supplies deliver pure class–A peak driving power, a muscular 4Wpc into 16 ohms. To achieve the same specification most conventional designs settle for a 24 watt transformer. Burson understands the difference between burst and sustained power so you'll find a custom 35VA transformer ensuring the Soloist is capable of a sustained 4 watts at all times. The Soloist power supply is built around a custom noise–filtering network employing twice as many filtering stages as most conventional designs resulting in superior noise rejection. That's why the Soloist delivers such clean and stable power with beautiful music emerging from a pitch–black background.

    Small Size And Big Performance

    Burson's oversize transformers and power supplies deliver pure class–A peak driving power, a muscular 2Wpc into 16 ohms. To achieve the same specification most conventional designs settle for a 12 watt transformer. Burson understands the difference between burst and sustained power so you'll find a custom 25VA transformer ensuring the Soloist SL is capable of a sustained 2 watts at all times.

    Custom Noise–filtering Network

    The Soloist power supply is built around a custom noise–filtering network employing twice as many filtering stages as most conventional designs resulting in superior noise rejection. That's why the Soloist SL delivers such clean and stable power with beautiful music emerging from a pitch–black background. The entire CNC–machined and polished aluminium enclosure functions an super–efficient heatsink. Find out why Burson customers call it "The Vault".

    The Bank Vault

    Sometimes called the Vault by our customers, the 6mm Resonance Free Aluminum (RFA) enclosures are constructed from precision–machined panels. Eight stainless steel bolts hold the enclosure together so it's virtually indestructible.

    Resonance Free 6mm Aluminum Enclosures

    We took great care to ensure the thickness of each wall varied from the others to increase the mechanical damping factor. The RFA enclosures display superior mechanical noise rejection (internal and external) compared to conventionally folded–steel enclosures used by many audio manufacturers.

    Optimizing Idle Current

    The geometry of the case and the precision of the enclosure's build allows the entire case to disperse heat very evenly so it acts like a large heat sink, something a steel–folded or thinly–built aluminium case can't match. The enclosure removes any need for big, unattractive heat sink fins and allows our components to be set at a high idle current. The results are lower distortion, higher output and improved dynamics.
