Raved about since its introduction in September 2018, the Burson Fun headphone amp and preamp delivers 2.1 watts at 32 ohms. Just like the company’s highly regarded Conductor and Soloist models, the Fun is a pure Class-A, dual mono design with a symmetrical circuitry layout that’s ideal for signal separation Read More

Does the amp is working with 220V?

You get a warranty by registering through Burson's website. It requires you to send them a couple photos.

anyone know if this supports their "opamp rolling" to easily allow us to swap out the opamps with the others they sell?

Yes it does, they also sell some 8 pin adapter to put their big opamp case closed.

It is too tall because Burson adds an extension pinned module which can be removed then the lid will close nicely

This or the liquid cavalli price not a factor?

The headphone output impedance of that thing is 6 ohm. That means that this amplifier cannot be paired with: Sennheiser PC37X (which I own). Sennheiser HD598 (which I own). Fostex T60-RP (which I own). Why should a reasonably designed product have such monstrous output? I guess I can only pair it with something like HD660S (which... well... you guessed)... Anyone heard of a gaming headset with nominal impedance greater than 50 ohm? I just wonder what can this thing be paired with, and why should it cost 240$...

It's apparently actually much lower than 6 ohms. See the "P.P.S." here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/burson-audio-fun-2w-pc-class-a-headphone-amp.881515/page-35#post-14855230 I've tried plugging 16 ohm IEMs into it. There is a VERY quiet hiss, but it's only noticeable when there is otherwise no sound playing and you have to listen hard for it. I tried using it with a MrSpeakers Aeon Flow Closed (13 ohm) and didn't notice any issues. I regularly use it with a Modhouse Argon MkIII (T50rp) and have no issues. Planars work differently though - impedance doesn't tell the whole story. I've used the Fun with both Burson V6 Vivid and Sparkos SS3601 op amps.

From time to time they get cheaper but that really depend and the fun only went once on sale as well as the bang and the swing.

wow, thank you for the advice. I had a feeling the Fun can be turned into something better than the Vivid/Classic options. and.... YES.... the Argons, I will give the Sparkos a try.

Still don’t rule out completely the vivids or the classics. They are very capable opamps as well. Even without the Sparkos the fun’s performance is just very, very good. The preamp to speakers for me is not just convenient but very well implemented. I wish it had a remote but nothing is perfect. But I am thinking to pair it with a Dac with wireless capability in the future. I was a little worried, with so much power how precise the volume control will be. No worries now, it’s rock solid and very precise analog Alps Japanese potentiometer inside and very smooth volume knob on the outside. Add to that the 5 years Burson warranty (not sure about the Massdrop warranty though. I purchased my amp from official distributor as open box with full warranty).

6 ohm output impedance seems a little high? think it will cause any issues with t50rp derivatives?

Not with (most) planars. Their impedance/phase is going to be dead flat as they should be. You're fine with any flavor of T50/60. Mk3 for example:

What a lack of enthusiasm for this drop, is everyone holding out for the THX 789?

Yeah it sells out pretty quick. I've missed two listings so far. :/ I might just have to settle for something else. Also the amount I was referring to was the THX. I know nothing about this amp nor do I plan on buying it, lol.

Already got the whole stack as it was on sale two month ago. So might be the same for other.

I have two of the Fun amps (different systems). They are in a rotation with various other amps. The Fun is clear, clean, articulate and extended. With some of the better treble (op-amp dependent) at anywhere near the price. Much better lateral spread and instrument separation than many amps. I hate the globs stuck between the ears, with the occasional instrument floater above the forehead. I should also mention that I listen to actual music. Acoustic, simply mic'd in real space, or the orchestra in a hall. Recommended.

I had a Soloist before one side of the winding went and smoked an inlet cap. It was blunted both top and bottom. Too smooth. Source, source material and the end transducer add or subtract from the listening experience. They work in concert don't forget. Your under the assumption that the last diode will never die. It takes innate talent and much practice to make a violin sing, a trumpet musical. Plugging into a wall? Your mistakes can be construed as "genius". Today's rhythm section is on a computer program. Music reflects society. Snippets, for reduced attention spans. Then angry, for the hopeless isolationist spiral we find ourselves in.
