Low Noise Power
Ever notice how your system sounds better in the evening or weekends? When AC power is generated it’s fairly clean, but every device between you and the station draws current that corrupts the waveform. Air conditioners pull down and send spikes through the AC line, and chargers’ capacitors nibble at the incoming AC only at the top and bottom of the alternating 60Hz waveform causing a rippling effect that creates distortion. Outdoor high-voltage cables pick up radio signals from multiple sources causing distortion. Transformers on the national grid are running close to saturation creating even more distortion!
The Burson stepped attenuator is built with premium-quality components and a solid-machined aluminium knob that ensures smooth and well-controlled operation.
The Burson volume control, unlike commonly-available stepped attenuators, is comprised of only one < 0.1% metal film resistor in the signal path. The result is total elimination of distortion introduced by typical volume controls that can vary up to 7%. The Soloist is the only Burson product using our exclusive 24-Step Volume Control at this time. Read about our new 100-Step Volume Control… Learn More[+]
The Bank Vault
Sometimes called the Vault by our customers, the 6mm Resonance Free Aluminum (RFA) enclosures are constructed from precision-machined panels. Eight stainless steel bolts hold the enclosure together so it’s virtually indestructible.
The geometry of the case and the precision of the enclosure’s build allows the entire case to disperse heat very evenly so it acts like a large heat sink, something a steel-folded or thinly-built aluminium case can’t match. The enclosure removes any need for big, unattractive heat sink fins and allows our components to be set at a high idle current. The results are lower distortion, higher output and improved dynamics.
