The ideal Playmate!

We have listened very carefully to the wishes of Play owners and our Playmate fulfills a very long wish list.

It is the ideal PlayMate we have been waiting for.

  • Playmate with a big heart

    If the SABRE32/ESS9038 chip is the soul of Playmate, then the Burson Max Current Power Supply, MCPS, is the heart that brings Playmate to life. Debuted in the Burson Play, our proprietary MCPS overcomes the deficiencies of both traditional transformer-based linear power supplies and conventional switching power supplies. It redefines the size and performance ratio and it is the reason why Head-Fiers fell in love with the Play instantly.

    With the Playmate, we have a further enhanced MCPS. It delivers even cleaner power. Tuned to Class-A, the Playmate shines from a pitch-black background.

  • Playmate your way

    Opamp rolling is a major part of the audiophile hobby. There are countless online discussions dedicated to it. It offers the opportunity to compare and appreciate different sonic performance in your own comfort zone and it is a valuable opportunity to develop listening preference and taste.
