    It works very well now! Crystal crisp clear sound coming through.

    At least with the LOW gain I hear no noise, and I paired my BANG with 90dB/W/1m floor-standing speakers (nothing connected to inputs). However, I guess all depends on the DAC you'll be using and if there will be or not ground loops or sensitive interconnects.

    Given BANG's price, I wouldn't think twice. I think BANG is the cheapest stereo amp from Earth based on LM3886T chip, with PSU included; it's actually cheaper than some DIY kits.

    I don't understand the question, sorry.

    P.S.: You might want to move this thread to BANG's thread, to not pollute PLAY's customers. :)

    I've heard some mention about something like that - from those who didn't know Bang comes with the gain set to high for input.
    Just put it on low and hiss should disappear.

    Nope, and totally not recommended for PLAY.

    Actually, you should wait for an official announcement to start this update on PLAYMATE/SWING; AFAIK this page is not indexed nor referenced to Burson's website yet, so let' wait few more weeks. In my case I got failures while trying to update my PLAYMATE on Win8/Win10/Sierra/HighSierra, so let's just wait.

    Burson isn't shy about letting you mod their products. If they state it'll cause irreversible damage I'd trust that statement.
    Baten and raoultrifan like this.

    This is what I get all the time no matter how hard I try to follow these instructions :D

    Do not try to update the firmware in PLAY!

    This is the PLAY thread. You may induce in error PLAY users and make them brick their device.
    The firmware is not for PLAY.

    That's true indeed. I posted in the wrong thread. I meant PLAYMAYE of course. Sorry guys, DON'T do this to PLAY.

    Does anyone know whats the difference between PCB 2.2 vs PCB 2.3 ?
  13. jarza
    Answer is from Burson: "The main change is at the power supply section. The improved design offers a lower noise floor to compare the previous version. "
  14. DjBobby
    If the mains noise issues from the previous PCB are solved with the 2.3, the Play might be the hottest Burson's deal at the moment, for only $199.

    @DjBobby That wasnt full answer they also said this "It will depend on the type of headphone you are using with the unit if your headphone is not so sensitive you may not detect the difference."
