Burson Conductor 3 GT

Burson delivers the ultimate in single-ended flagship power with the Conductor 3 GT

  • Single-ended DAC, Headphone Amp, and Preamp
  • Dual ESS9038 DACs
  • 10W of power at 16 ohm
  • Digital input via USB, S/PDIF, Digital Coax, or Bluetooth 
  • Analog input via RCA

Our Take 
If you like keeping it old school, with a setup that primarily uses RCA and 6.3mm headphone terminations (also known as 1/4 inch), the Conductor 3 GT is just what you need. It offers unparalleled levels of single-ended power – with no need for XLR or Pentacon – and flagship level DAC performance to go along with it.

Our flagship Single-Ended DAC / head-amp / preamp all-in-one

The Conductor 3 GT takes that unique Burson house sound further with a new output stage for its dual ESS9038 DACs. A new feedback based gain control allows this GT to max out at 10 Watts yet matches with even more headphones. With so many functionalities and refinement, you will never want to add another machine to your desktop.

Using what was learned from the Soloist GT and more, Burson is making the Conductor GT epic!

Not all DACs sound the same

These days, DACs from different brands can sound identical if they use the same DAC chip. This is because they use the same (publicly available) standard circuitry DAC chip makers provide. This approach reduces R&D time, cost and risk. These DACs also use similar parts, op-amps, power supplies and working voltage. The resulting sound is unavoidably generic.

In the Conductor GT, Burson has tailored a new output stage to utilize the wide bandwidth of their Vivid op-amps. When combined with their proprietary Max Current Power Supply, the GT takes Burson's unique house sound to a new level with even more details in every note.

Advanced Digital

Its digital interface is the most advanced and comprehensive, from its XMOS USB receiver to its Qualcomm Bluetooth module. With a customized driver by Thesycon, Germany, its Xmos USB receiver has unsurpassed processing power and accuracy, perfectly streaming DSD512 and 32bit/768khz audio.

It also features a Bluetooth 5.0 receiver Qualcomm/CSR8675 [+] with an aptX HD audio & LDAC codec. It pushes Bluetooth playback beyond CD quality and ease of use to the highest level.

Smooth Control

The all-new OLED screen and interface program deliver a calming and intuitive user experience. Its machined solid aluminum knob offers the most delicate control and feels luxurious.

Powering the GT

The thumping heart of the Conductor GT is 5 sets of Burson Max Current Power Supplies. Burson is 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 GT is not tracing power. Instead, it pursues purity!

Go to your Roon!

Roon is the most popular streaming and HD music management platform for audiophiles. Burson is part of this fantastic ecosystem. Burson DACs are Roon Tested, and they seamlessly connect with any 3rd party Roon Ready audio streamers.

GT Cool.

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

Combining its resonance-free enclosure with the quietest fan money can buy from Noctua in Austria, the GT is quieter than the background ambience of your music.

Fully Differential Audio Paths

The V6 Vivid discrete op-amps are wildly regarded as the best, and they used in countless recording studios. The Conductor GT uses 6 Vivid op-amps in its fully differential output stage, achieving incredible transparency. However, it still plays to your preference by allowing op-amps to be changed, enabling you to create your own listening experience.

Head+Sub Mode. Say what!?

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 moves 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.

Who drives this GT?

Lifestyle used to be a dirty word in the world of audiophiles. Not anymore! The Conductor GT is the ultimate all-in-one, and it proves that something easy to use can perform at the highest level. The GT is beautiful to look at, but its features and benefits are what truly shine allowing you to focus on what it is all about: experiencing music!
