      Burson AudioSoloist returns, all grown up and civilised as the new Soloist 3X Performance without forgetting his humble, blue-collar lineage. Soloist is set to shake up the audio industry aristocracy with his flair for performance and working-class affordability.

      Introduced in 2005, the original Burson Audio Soloist was a bit rough around the edges. With its fully discrete circuitry, resistor ladder volume control and Class-A amplification, the Soloist made a name for oneself, turning Burson from a band of idealists into a brand representing ideals.

      The Soloist 3X Performance spits out 8000mW in XLR and 4000mW single-ended. Yet, it can drive headphones up to 110db sensitivity without detectable current noise.  The key to this ferocious power and pitch-black background is 3 sets of Burson proprietary Max Current Power Supplies (MCPS), delivering instant, abundant and clean energy to its fully discrete and Class-A circuitry.

      Challenge the conventional.



      Elitist Volume Control
      The Soloist uses the legendary MUSES72320 volume controller. The same controller using by industry aristocrats such as the Pass Lab XP-30, the AVM Ovation and other flagship preamps priced for the fortunate few.  When combined with three levels of gain and our input buffer stage, the Soloist matches any headphone and loudspeaker amplifier perfectly.

      Headphone Power Amp Mode
      Less is more, and that is the truth even when using the best components on the signal path. Although the MUSE72320 is an incredible volume controller, it will let you bypass it when your DAC or preamp already controls volume.

      OPAMP Rolling Fun
      The Soloist is confident and self-assured, but it still plays to your preference. It encourages opamp rolling with gold plated DIP8 sockets on its signal path. With countless audio opamps out there, you have complete freedom to create a unique listening experience.

      Listening Impression
      It powers through any demanding work with precision, reveals micro-details which makes music magical and unveils the emotional core within the rhythms. The Burson Soloist 3X returns to entertain a new generation of audience.
