Burson Audio Conductor Air USB Headphone Amp, DAC and Preamp


Available in Silver or Black

The Conductor Air redefines the size and performance ratio of portable audio. It is a USB DAC/Soundcard, Headphone amplifier and Remote controlled preamp 3 in 1. It is the perfect audio player when you are on the go and at home it is the centre of your high fidelity audio system. This 3 in 1 device is a smooth operator as a headphone amplifier or a preamp for your home audio system. The Air enclosure and its remote control are both machined from solid blocks of high density aluminum. They are then brushed and anodized with distinctive Burson styling.

A key feature of the Conductor Air is its TPA6120A headphone amp chip. This is a reference class headphone amplifier chip typically featured in desktop audio and pro-audio applications. This chip however is avoided by conventional portable designs due to its high voltage requirement. The Air delivers desktop amp performance in a pocket size device.

USB Audio

The XMOS USB interface offers the highest level of connectivity from desktop Windows based PC and Mac OSX to major mobile platforms such as Apple iOS and Androids. It can even play back audiophile quality formats such as DSD256/DXD and 32bit/384khz audio files. For Android devices which support OTG, the Air draws power from the device. For iPhone and iPad, an external 5v power bank is needed.
