Just a reminder to anyone who has yet to sign up for the first Hallman Labs (review equipment) giveaway, the entry period ends at 12AM PST. You can find all the details in this post.
All that is required to enter is to follow this website (from the main page, button on the right side says Follow) and that is it! If you are the winner I will contact you for shipping address and nothing else is needed. That is except for international entries (outside USA), you must agree to pay half of the shipping cost in order to enter. To agree to this shipping cost just email me at Keith@hallmanlabs.com with a subject titled “International Entry for HL Burson Play Giveaway” and you will be entered.
It is possible to enter into the Giveaway twice if you purchase an item at the Hallman Labs Vintage Store (currently running through EBay). With a limit of 1 extra entry per household.
I have personally been listening to the Giveaway unit for the last 3 days and I have had no issues at all with the device, once I replaced a failed XMOS unit that is. The Burson Play sounds pretty dang good to have the stock 5532 and 5534 op-amps! Upgrading op-amps are the easiest way to increase fidelity with this DAC/Amp.
I will draw the winner tomorrow (September 1st, 2018) at 5PM! Good luck to all of those who are entered in the drawing.
