Product Highlights

    300w Of Peak Power

    Through the Timekeeper, Burson demonstrates the Burson approach with this timeless creation. onsistent with the Burson less is more philosophy, the Timekeeper employs a new symmetrical bipolar transistor voltage gain stage. It is powered by a customized 300W transformer delivering 80W RMS PC. With its 40,000uF of power reserve, the Timekeeper is capable of achieving 300W of peak power which ensures absolute control with the finest micro details audible at all times. In Bridged Mode Apart from working as a stereo power amp the Timekeeper also works in mono block configuration delivering up to 240W RMS of power. In this mode, when a standard line level signal comes into the Timekeeper, a FET input stage splits the signal into two halves. (+ and –(. One of the Timekeeper channels then amplifies just the + signal while the other channel amplifies just the – signal. After amplification the two halves are recombined at the output. In this mode, the Timekeeper doubles in voltage swing. It not only improves macro–dynamics, but also micro–dynamics through its extra power reserve. In this mode, the Timekeeper will have even the most demanding speakers under its absolute control. Furthermore, the Timekeeper accepts both RCA and XLR input signals when operating in Bridge Mode. This ensures that any source component and not just those with XLR output can take advantage of this configuration.

    A Desktop Amplifier With Big Amp Performance

    Fill your living space with music instead of bulky components! Burson reduced the Timekeeper's footprint as much as possible (but not more) while retaining its handsome looks. Every aspects of its design, every dimension of the case, every joint, every connection and every mounting technique was engineered to perfection.

    Tough, Attractive Enclosures

    Burson's solid, handsome CNC–machined aluminum enclosures double as supremely efficient heatsinks in additions to the fins, so the Timekeeper is temperature stable and always performs at its best.

    Compact Design

    With a Timekeeper amplifier you don't have to settle for class–D or class–T sound or rearrange your living space. The Timekeeper is small enough for your desktop and powerful enough for any speaker system with its powerful, meticulously–designed class–AB output stage.

    300w Custom Transformer

    The Timekeeper is totally IC–free and features a 300W custom–built transformer and a finely–designed linear power supply. The Timekeeper delivers 80Wpc in stereo, and 230Wpc bridged. It looks and sounds amazing! The Timekeeper features fully–discrete circuitry and a completely symmetrical FET input stage, Elna Slimic 2 and DALE military–grade resistors, and a custom low–noise transformer. Class–AB generates some heat so the Timekeeper needs a little room to breathe.

    Powerful Bridge Mode

    Transparent and even more powerful in bridged mode, the Timekeeper delivers its 80Wpc RMS or 230Wpc bridged with 40,000uF in power reserve. It accepts both RCA and XLR inputs when operating in bridged mode ensuring that any source component can take best advantage of its sound.

    Class–AB Amp, Class–D–Sized Enclosure

    Burson believed strongly that an amplifier has to live up to the high bar set by their other components. Smaller–footprint power amplifiers were very often class–D or variations on it like class–T or Z. These designs suffer from two major flaws in their view. First, as always, Burson eschews the use of IC–based chips as audio building blocks. Secondly, class–D and class–T chips were created for the car audio industry. Subsequently they were used in mobile phones where power efficiency, size and budget are the driving design goals with audio performance languishing far behind. Burson was determined then to create a class–D–sized power amplifier with a fully IC–free class–AB output stage, a custom–built transformer and a linear power supply.

    Cleaner Power Means Higher Resolution

    Burson is the difference between hearing music and experiencing it. They are a mark of quality build, thoughtful circuit design, value for money and elegant, engaging sound. Burson makes products for the world we live in where space is limited yet headphone aficionados and desktop audio system enthusiasts expect top performance at reasonable prices. If you're considering the purchase of a Burson product like the Timekeeper, then we already have an existing relationship. You're clearly as passionate about the experience of music as we are, and like all headphilers, you want whata??s there but you want it better. You're why Burson Audio exists.
