Burson Audio Playmate 2

About Burson

Burson Audio is challenging the conventional and pushing the boundaries of audio excellence through innovation. A decade ago, we argued against using IC opamps on the audio signal path. Today, our discrete audio opamps are industry benchmarks. [+] Learn More

In 2017, we had a breakthrough in power supply research. It led to the development of our proprietary Max Current Power Supply (MCPS). Superior to both transformer-based and conventional switching power supply designs, the MCPS is featured in all Burson products, winning awards and leaving competitors in the dust. [+] Learn More 

We don’t advertise, buy reviews, nor attend trade-shows, and we certainly don’t markup prices to cover such costs. Instead, we build products that speak for themselves and build relationships directly with fellow audiophiles. We also work with selective, like-minded audio stores around the world which contribute to their local audio community.

More than a Facelift

Playmate 2 is more than a pretty new outfit. It is a complete transformation from the already famous P1.

Beautiful, Cool, with a different Touch

Touch and feel the Playmate 2 then our competition. The difference will be striking. Precision machined, this beautiful aluminium enclosure is also an unified heat-sink, keeping the Class-A Playmate running cool while looking hot.
