Audiophile review: Burson Play

Burson Audio sent the Play to me to test at My written review of it was published Tuesday this week, and this video was slated to upload on Wednesday. Sadly, I had a 39,4º fever, tonsillitis, and swear I saw God. Maybe I did.

Play is a DSD/DXD 32-bit/384kHz capable DAC and headphone amp (with mic) that can be sat atop your desk, plugged into an empty PC slot, and powered by the mains, or by your PC’s power supply. It is hella powerful, measures hella good, and, apart from a high level of background hiss when paired with sensitive earphones/headphones, one of the most impressive amp/DACs I’ve used at its price and certainly more powerful than many above.

Great device. Too much hiss.
