Burson Conductor 3X Reference

Burson Conductor 3X Reference is stacked! With a dual dac design, two ESS 9038Q2M chips in a dual mono configuration for ultimate performance, feeding the ultra high power Class-A balanced headphone amp, with XLR and 6.5mm outputs to get the most out of any flagship headphone. Includes remote, a vivid display, XLR input and both pre and line XLR outputs, to function as a pre-amp in a high end system. 

This Reference model uses 5 sets of Burson's Max Current Power Supply, to wring out the best performance possible. The Class-A headphone amp outputs over 3 watts SE and over 7 watts through XLR - perfect if you have multiple headphones or are planning to upgrade headphones down the road. Burson's signature open, massive soundstage and fast, lively dynamics are on full display here, letting you disappear into the music to a level that is rarely possible.

It can be mounted vertically with the optional burson stands, with the display can be switched to vertical orientation, taking up very little desk space and handling cooling from the heatsink even better than when positioned horizontally.
