Burson Audio Soloist SL MK2

Take the power into your own hands with the Burson Soloist SL MK2 headphone amplifier and pre-amp with compelling strength and distinct clarity. Configured by Burson Audio with minimal components in the signal path the Soloist SL MK2 achieves ultra-clean sound. Custom-designed power elements deliver pure class-A peak driving power to any headphone or speaker setup with authority. Compared to the standard Soloist SL, the MK2 is 25% more powerful, it is very dynamic, yet with more refined mid and mid-high extension.

Exclusive balanced current feedback circuits with only 21 components in the signal path of the Soloist SL MKII provide more power than any other headphone amplifier, with clean and distortion-free sound performance. On the other side of the scale, Burson Audio have designed the power supply with double the usual filtering stages resulting in superior noise rejection for the cleanest possible sound.

Perfectly matching with any component, from hard-to-drive headphones to power-hungry speaker systems and sensitive monitor earphones, the Soloist SL MK2 takes advantage of Burson's Variable Output Stage. This ensures that any audio setup is catered for allowing the Soloist SL MK2 to merge with simplicity with new and old audio components of any kind.

Limitless reference sound.

Transparent Power
No other headphone amp offers as much power with so few components in the signal path as the Soloist SL MK2. The Soloist SL MK2 is perfectly tailored with 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 4W per channel into 16 ohms. As Burson understands the difference between burst and sustained power, a custom 35VA transformer ensures the Soloist SL MK2 is capable of uninterrupted 4 watts power output per channel at all times.

Superior Noise Rejection
Soloist's 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 MK2 delivers such clean and stable power with beautiful music emerging from a pitch-black background.

Optimal Cooling
The entire CNC-machined and polished aluminium enclosure functions as a super-efficient heatsink. Burson Audio Soloist SL MK2 is constructed from precision-machined panels from Resonance Free Aluminium (RFA) enclosures with eight stainless steel bolts that hold the enclosure together.

Variable Output Stage
With Burson’s Variable Output Stage (VOS) users can select different output power levels to match different headphone requirements. With this total flexibility the preamp section can be a perfect match with low-power tube amps as well as high-power solid-state muscle amps, from low-efficiency closed-box speakers to high-efficiency horn-loaded speaker.

Exclusive Stepped Attenuator
Armed with the custom-made Burson stepped attenuator that is built with premium-quality components and a solid-machined aluminium knob the Soloist SL MK2 ensures smooth and well-controlled operation with total elimination of distortion.
