    Couple of thumbs shouldn't bother anyone here, I hope. However, these are for T50RP-mk3, but the T60RP are a bit better in the low-end, so feel free to adjust the lowest octave per your liking.
    Also, above 2KHz trust no one, just use your ears. I'm sensitive around 5-6KHz and I'm missing few dB around 8KHz, so...please use your ears and audiocheck.net or similar.

    It has been about a month since I bought the new v2.3 PCB, I have the same issue with DC Barrel of previous power cords and there has been no response from Burson to address this issue.

    I after a public post they will respond.

    Btw, anybody compared Playmate with Play v2.3?

    @imran27 , I probably missed your initial post, what is the issue about, please?

    The barrel on the power adapter of previous PCB versions I have (v1.6, v2.1) does nt fit on the v2.3

    If I remember well someone had same issue posted in the thread and they answered that they will send him another power brick to fit it. See pages 62-65.
    Seems that few boards got a different connector, not all.

    How far would you have to turn the knob for listenable volume?
     
  8. raoultrifan
    For T50RPmk3 and HE-560 I get between 40-60%, depending on the recording of the input tracks. For normal sensitivity dynamic headphones the volume is somewhere between 25-40%.

    Between 15 and 25.

    In my case - around 4-6 only.
    Same value for 24 ohms cans but also the 250 ohms DT1990 Pro...

    Has anyone received a Playmate?

    I just received shipping tracking but I imagine it will be another couple of weeks for me.

    Just put up my review of the Burson Play Basic "Kicking $299 Audio Expectations to the Curb" - https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/burson-audio-play.22702/reviews

    I guess from the title, you can see my opinion. I have played with a number of low-cost options as I worked myself up in audiophile sound and have never heard this kind of performance at this price. It is replacing my Hugo 2 in my desktop audio chain so that my Hugo 2 is ready for mobile use without the both of having to tear down and reassemble. I am not going to miss it as the SQ difference is only slight. That is saying a lot given the price difference. Regardless, my review covers the pairing of my HP and CIEM collection to give you an idea of what it offers high-end equipment. The short of it is that the neutral signature plays well with all and offers max performance from each. As a bonus, I check what happens when running a higher end Eddie Current ZDs t;ube amp with the 9018 dac implementation and it was stellar. Let me know what you think of the review.

    Went through the same thought when I sold my Hugo because I don’t really need a mobile dac and the difference in SQ doesn’t justify the price.

    Now it's on sale at $249, basic ver. only. However, best price/performance on planet for a Class-A 2x2 watts amplifier with DAC inside.
