  • Burson Audio Conductor 3 Reference

    Being the best of its time. This has been the sole design goal of each Burson Conductor since 2007. Burson Audio C3 Reference took 3 years to built and it leaves the competition for dust. It pushes Bluetooth playback beyond CD quality and ease of use to the highest level.
     
    Burson Audio Conductor 3 Reference also features a Bluetooth 5.0 receiver Qualcomm/CSR8675 with aptX HD audio codec. It pushes Bluetooth playback beyond CD quality and ease of use to the highest level.



    Advanced Digital
    The SABRE32/ESS9038Q2M DAC and XMOS USB receiver chips are the most advanced and expensive in the industry. There are two ESS9038 DAC chips in our C3 Reference and its USB receiver comes with customised driver by Thesycon, Germany. The result is unsurpassed processing power, perfectly playing back DSD512 and 38bit/786khz audio.

    Bluetoth 5.0
    The C3 Reference also features a Bluetooth 5.0 receiver Qualcomm/CSR8675 with aptX HD audio codec. It pushes Bluetooth playback beyond CD quality and ease of use to the highest level.

    Max Power X 5
    Max Current Power Supply (MCPS) raises voltage frequency from 50Hz to 170kHz, pushing noise beyond human hearing. Its low impedance ensures abundant and instant energy for output transistors. The C3 Reference uses 5 sets of MCPS: Which means, Display/Functionality, DAC, analogue left and analogue right are all separately powered.

    The Cool Case
    Made from high-density aluminium and electroplated to space-grey. The Cool Case has only 4 visible screws under its belly. It is also a unified heat-sink that is 300% more efficient than previous Conductors. It is audio jewellery at its finest and It looks and plays very cool.

    Smooth Control
    The all-new OLED screen and interface program deliver a calming and intuitive user experience. Its machined solid aluminium knob offers the fines control and feels luxurious.
