Timekeeper

A perfect fit in any living space

We’re all living in smaller, compressed and more costly living space. Burson believes that should be respected and so makes beautifully-constructed, densely-packed, small-scale components that do the job like… virtuosos.

The new Timekeeper Virtuoso amplifier is a huge upgrade to the previous Timekeeper, delivering a transparent, nuanced and rich-with-detail presentation. Nevertheless it also has the power to drive desktop and larger floor standing speakers.

Power, a lot of it

The custom-built 1500W transformer is five times the size of the previous model and occupies the entire ground floor of the amplifier! The Virtuoso puts out a stable, linear 100wpc into 8 ohms, 200wpc into 4 ohms, and a whopping 350wpc into 2 ohms. Do you want more power? Bridge a pair for 300wpc into 8 ohms and 600wpc into 4 ohms for serious driving power.

Craft to Perfection

The Timekeeper Virtuoso features attractive, vault-like, beautifully-machined aluminum casework making an elegant, understated package. Circuits are fully discrete — no op-amps — allied with a special Burson-designed FET input stage and a class-AB output stage.

Burson goes to these great lengths to deliver an immersive, engaging sound that always expresses the beauty of music that’s exactly what we want to share with you.
