An Epic Grand Tourer

The Burson Soloist GT embodies the Burson innovative spirit, showcasing their commitment to pushing boundaries and turning unconventional approaches into design benchmarks.

In 2023, Burson is taking the GT to the next level with even cleaner power and a superior signal path, pushing its performance to new heights

Symmetrical Through and Through

You can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge circuitry by its layout. Symmetrical dual-mono is beautiful and achieves the highest possible audio performance. Under the bonnet, the GT has two independently powered mono amps in mirrored symmetry. The resulting pitch-black soundstage and crisp details are breathtaking!

Elitist Volume Control x2

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 and bringing you closer to that perfect soundstage.

Headphone Crossfeed

Live music and loudspeakers produce a mixed sound, providing positional awareness. Many recording engineers anticipate tracks playing on stereo speakers rather than headphones.

While some listeners use software for crossfeed, it can introduce distortions. The Soloist GT offers three hardware-based crossfeed emulation levels, allowing you to enjoy your favorite tracks just as you prefer.

Silent Power Modules

By transitioning from the LM317 low noise regulator (120µV) to the more advanced LT1963 (40µV), Burson has achieved a purer, more stable power supply for its internal components. In addition, this innovative design also features modular elements, enabling effortless future upgrades. A critical part of Burson's MCPS, the new Soloist 3X GT attains a remarkable SNR of 116dB, delivering an unrivaled audio experience.

GT Cool

The Burson Cool Case boasts the largest heat sink for any headphone amp, but Burson took it a step further with active cooling for the GT. This allows every component to operate within optimal temperature ranges, pushing performance to the limit. The redesigned, resonance-free enclosure combined with Noctua’s ultra-quiet fan from Austria, ensures wind noise is below 25dBA (quieter than an empty recording studio’s 30dBA ambient noise) making the GT virtually silent amidst your music.

Optimized for Single-Ended

The Soloist 3 GT is optimized for single-ended listening with a shorter signal path and fewer active components. Adopting a higher power type transistor, it delivers 10W into single-ended headphones. This purist design, with twice the working current, is the end-game machine for any single-ended audio system.

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.

Outstanding Headphone Amp!

Coming from the 1st generation Burson Soloist 3X GT, this amp is indeed a significant step up in performance. This amp will get you very close to what is really there on your favorite recordings. Clean, clear power, grip, and air with a more organic feel from lows to highs than lesser solid state amps bring to the table. I have owned a number of the most recent well reviewed candidates along those lines, and most sound rather sterile in comparison. Highly recommended for your audition!
