Apologies to the Neighbors (Burson Audio’s DAC Testing Reached 100.00dB max!!)


Burson vs ES9038 w Titles


Well I currently have about 8 pages written of notes, thoughts on head to head Burson Play vs my custom ES9038Pro DAC. In the end it ended up being very close, which is why I was volume matching. One time I forgot to match the power amp back down and we got a few 100dB spikes!


Whoops, tried to keep it below 90 dB. The Burson Play is so much louder than that much bigger ES9038Pro DAC!

Sorry neighbors, it’s almost over!  Going to the headphones part of the review, haha.
