Review: Burson Play – Hell of a deal

By | June 19th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

It’s DAC interfaces over USB, is compatible with DSD 256, and has one of the most powerful headphone amps I’ve ever had on my desk. Prices range from 299$ to 549$. I tested both the base model and the ticked out version for this review. You can find out all about it here: Burson Play.

Review: Burson Audio Cable+, 120cm of improvement

By | December 2nd, 2016|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: Burson Audio sent us the Burson Cable+ (two versions) in exchange for this review. As far as I know these samples don’t need to be returned.

Burson

The Australian Burson Audio was founded in 1996 and is well known in the world of personal audio and beyond. They’ve successfully launched several amplifiers such as the HA-160D(S), Soloist, Conductor, Virtuoso, Soloist SL and the opamp-rolling back to basics Lycan under the Supreme Sound brandname. Next to that they have a series of popular and good sounding opamps like the V4 and V5(i) (reviewed in the Lycan article) and now they’re back with a new product called the Cable+.… Read the full article

At the larger high-end audio shows, the Astell&Kern booth lands spaceship-like into the middle of the main exhibition hall. To Hong Kong High-End 2016 this Korean craft carries overseas visitors known – Andy Regan of JH Audio, Ken Ball of ALO / Campfire Audio, Sankar Thiagasamudram of Audeze.

Regan could be seen promoting a revised Rosie IEM, Ball his top-flight Andromeda IEM and Thiagasamudram his Cipher-cabled Sine on-ear; each of which represent some of the finest offerings in their respective categories.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday: An op-amp tight fit?

Picture Sunday, yo! Audiophiles cross the crazy line all the time. Special headphones for this song, tailor-made EQ for that one, separate DAPs for hip hop and jazz. If you’re a VentureCraft Valoq owner, you can spend 600$ on an op-amp set. Lo’ and behold, each set makes actual, measurable difference, not to mention skews sound.

So when you’ve got Burson’s bristling op-amps and no Lycan, what do you do?… Read the full article

Review: Burson / Supreme Sound Lycan + opamps

By | May 17th, 2016|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: The Australian Burson Audio is a Headfonia advertiser. Supreme Sound isn’t but indirectly there of course is a link. The Lycan was sent to us free of charge together with the V4 and V5 discrete op-amps.

Intro

The goal of this article is to explain the Lycan, op-amp rolling and a little bit of discrete circuits to everyone, from beginner to DIY expert.  This is the first piece of “Burson” gear in my collection. I did review the original HA-160 years ago and listened to plenty of their units at shows though.… Read the full article

Hello guys!

Hold on tight cause this will be about an amazing peace of audio gear.

Well, a few months ago, I was very happy with my combo ( Burson HA-160DS and LCD2). I thought this will be it for a loong time… Who was I kidding??

One day Sandu (Darku) contacts me very happy saying that he has received the new Burson Conductor to write a review for soundnews.ro . He already had the Burson Soloist for a review and considered it to be an excellent product, and he expected a lot from the new all in one product from Burson .… Read the full article
