Squeeze seemingly impossible performance and versatility into impossibly small packages. That has been our self-imposed goal since day one.
In the Burson Conductor Reference, we have squeezed a dual-mono DAC, a fully discrete Pre-amp and an over-killed Class-A headphone amp into an enclosure that looks great alongside a Mac Book.
With the Timekeeper 3i, we have created the ultimate all-in-one by adding a 100w pc Class-AB speaker amplifier into a Conductor! No more cables everywhere! No more shelf full of equipment in your space. There’s just the TK-3i, your headphone/speakers and good times with your music.
Max Current Power Supply
This insane all-in-one is made possible by our proprietary Max Current Power Supply technology, which removed the need for heavy transformers and oversized power caps, delivering instant and clean power directly to the output transistors.
The sum is greater than the parts
Matching between equipment is always challenging. Get it wrong, and you won’t hear the full potential of your system.
With the TK-3i, we are doing the matching for you, from impedance to gain to sonic characteristics. Its DAC, Preamp, Headphone Amp, and Speaker Amp sections come working in perfect synergy.
The TK-3i is a dual-mono DAC with one SABRE32/ESS9038Q2M DAC chip per channel. These industry-leading DAC chips are independently powered to maximise dynamics and micro-details while eliminating cross channel interference.
Its XMOS USB chip, again the most advanced money can buy, is customised by Thesycon in Germany to achieve even lower latency and bit-perfect audio playback. The result is incredible processing power, accurately streaming DSD512 and 38bit/786khz audio files.
The TK-3i features a Qualcomm/CSR8675 Bluetooth 5.0 receiver, which streams at 24bit/96khz with aptX HD audio codec., pushing sound quality and ease of use to the highest level.
USB-C Back to Back
With competitors staying in the USB-B age, TK-3i warps into the USB-C future. No more dongles, no more converters. Phones, tablets, Windows or Mac, Plug-n-play!
Keep the Amp, Change the Cans.
Class-A, 2Wpc. The TK-3i is also a true-blue Burson headphone amp. Powered by our MCPS, this 2 Watts is rock solid. With two feedback based gain levels and 100 volume steps each, IEM, no worries. Big cans, no sweat!
From Desktop to Home Auditorium.
The TK-3i features two speaker output levels. One for power-hungry full-range speakers. One for near-field monitoring, which requires an even lower noise floor and much finer volume control.
Time to Game
As if it hasn’t got enough functionalities already! Gaming headset compatibility, ticked.
Movie night, game night or Zoom night. Your time is always prime.
Your musical taste will change through time, and the TK-3i will keep up with you. Change its opamps to tune its sound. With four changeable opamps, the TK-3i will always be a keeper.
Keeping it Cool
Touch and feel the TK-3i then our competition. The difference will be striking. Precision machined, this beautiful aluminium enclosure is also a unified heat-sink, keeping the Class-A headphone amp and Class-AB speaker amp running cool while looking hot.

When Taron and Andrew Lissimore started headphones.com, they wanted to create the headphone store they wished existed. As headphone enthusiasts, they wanted a store with 365-day returns.
So they decided they were going to try to make 365-day returns work - no matter how ridiculous it sounded to their wives.
Years later, they're still doing it, and their wives still think they're crazy.
So take some time to get to know your new gear. We want you to enjoy your purchase for years, not just a few weeks. If you're not satisfied, you can return items in like-new condition for up to 365-days.

To get the return process started, you just need to click this link. Enter your order number as well as e-mail address to get it started and after that just follow the steps outlined in the portal (note open-box, special order and sale items are not eligible). A pre-paid shipping label will be generated for you a deducted from your refund after being processed.
After receiving your return label, you will have 7 days to drop off your return with the courier. If your return is not dropped off within 7 days of receiving your return label, a 30% restocking fee will occur. If your return is not dropped off within a month of your label being issued, your return will be rejected.
2. Pack Your Items Carefully
Your item must be in like-new condition with its original packaging. It must also include all original accessories and manuals. Please add a larger shipping box to protect the original packaging during shipping.

Return Policy Abuse
In order to provide a 365-day return policy, we need to take abuse seriously.
We monitor a buyers ratio of purchased to returned products. If it exceeds an internal threshold they will no longer be allowed to place orders with Headphones.com. This includes customers who spread returns across multiple accounts.
We made our return policy to help you find gear you feel great about for a long time. Most people use it exactly as intended. We don't want the handful of people who attempt to abuse our policy to ruin it for everyone else.
If you paid with a cryptocurrency, the returned amount will be equal to the USD equivalent of your payment on CoinGecko.com at the time the refund is processed. The return will be made in the currency of your original order.
After You've Made a Return
Each return is inspected at our warehouse. During busy times these inspections may take a few extra days.
Refund or Credit
We will notify you by email when your refund or credit has been processed. It may take a few business days for a refund to appear in your account. This is determined by your financial institution.
If you still have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and an advisor will be happy to help.
One of the key things we pride ourselves on is our customer service and one of the most important aspects of our customer service is getting you your product on time! But not only do we want to get it to you on time, we want to make sure we are using a reliable courier so the experience for you is the best possible. That is why we ship all of our orders with FedEX.
While couriers like USPS are tempting because of their low cost, we have found that they are not a good experience for our customers. Nobody wants their package to not be delivered and then have to spend an hour on hold with the local post office trying to get information. To that end, all of our packages are shipped signature required with FedEX to make sure your package arrives in your hands safe and sound and if there are any issues, your time isn't wasted.
However, if you are looking to ship to PO Box or APO address, we can definitely accommodate your shipping needs!

How Soon Will My Order Ship
We strive for every item we have on the website to be in stock and ready to ship the same day. So if your order is in stock and you place your order before 1pm PST, it will ship that same day.
Sometimes, we like to give our customers the opportunity to place orders on backordered items or pre-orders.

When the item is back in stock, it will ship out with the FedEX shipping methods above.
