    Burson Audio Soloist 3X GT Headphone Amplifier & Pre-Amp

    • Active cooling enables the GT to push performance limits
    • Two independently powered mono amps in mirrored symmetry
    • Five sets of Burson Max Current Power Supplies
    • Three V6 Vivid opamps per channel achieve incredible transparency
    • Upgradable OPAMP rolling for infinite tonalities
    • Updated enclosure design enhances stiffness and reduces resonance
    • Burson Audio Soloist 3X GT

      The Soloist 3X GT is the embodiment of Burson's innovative spirit. It is the first headphone amp in the world that works so hard it needs active cooling. Through research and over-engineering, Burson turn unconventional approaches into design benchmarks.

      Symmetrical dual-mono is beautiful and achieves the highest possible audio performance. Under the bonnet, the Soloist 3X GT has two independently powered mono amps in mirrored symmetry. The resulting pitch-black soundstage and crisp details are breathtaking.

      The thumping heart of the Soloist GT is 5 sets of Burson Max Current Power Supplies. Burson are pushing these MCPS to the limits of their potential. So much so that they consume 90W when idle and need active cooling. Although spitting out 10 Watts, the Soloist 3X GT is not tracing power. Instead, it pursuits purity. So if you ever wonder what Norah Jones really sounds like, this dream machine takes you there.

      An Epic Grand Tourer.

      Symmetrical Audio Paths
      The V6 Vivid discrete opamps are wildly regarded as the best globally and used in countless recording studios. The GT uses three V6 Vivid opamps per channel, achieving incredible transparency. However, it still plays to your preference by allowing opamps to change, enabling you to create your own listening experience.

      Elitist Volume Control X 2
      The typical stereo volume control creates lots of cross channel interference. Industry aristocrats such as Pass Lab and AVM use the MUSES72320 volume control to reduce such distortion in their flagships preamps. The Soloist GT goes further by using one MUSES72320 + V6 Vivid discrete buffer volume control per channel, eliminating any chances of cross channel interference.

      Headphone Crossfeed
      Live music and loudspeaker sound arrive at your head mixed. It gives you a sense of positioning. Most recording engineers also work under the assumption that their tracks will be playing through stereo speakers, not headphones. Some headphone listeners use software to create that crossfeed, but such DSP often create other distortions. The Soloist GT has three levels of hardware-based crossfeed emulation.

      GT Cool
      The Burson Cool Case is already the most oversized heat sink on any headphone amp. Still, Burson adopted active cooling for the GT. With every component operating in a predetermined temperature range, independent of the environment, active cooling gives us the freedom to push the GT to its performance limit.

      Resonance Reduction
      To eliminate wind noise, Burson designed a new enclosure to enhance stiffness and reduce resonance. Combining this resonance-free enclosure with the quietest fan money can buy from Noctua in Austria, wind noise sits below 25dBA. In comparison, an empty recording studio has over 30dBA of ambient noise.

      Head+Sub Mode
      We feel sound as much as we hear sound. Before the invention of headphones, music listening has always been a full-body experience. It’s not just what your ears can hear but all the energy that your body feels that move the soul. Headphone listening goes to a new level with a carefully matched and placed subwoofer. The GT enables this experience with its Head+Sub mode.
