Burson specialises in customized discrete circuits that, unlike general-purpose IC-based op-amps, are designed specifically to suit their applications. For the consumer this means components built for peak performance and less components interfering with the audio signal.
The Burson Supreme Sound Op-amp Range
The Supreme Sound SS Op-amp is a specialised, single-purpose operational amplifier that delivers high quality analogue audio amplification. At only 29mm (1.14in) high it one of the smallest discrete type op-amps in the world, and the end result of 10 years of research and development.
The newly developed Burson V5i is a hybrid audio opamp, which is both partially IC and discrete, and bears the sonic signature of its bigger brother.
