    Have had the chance to hear the Burl on my rig (thank you CeeTee) comparing it with the Gungnir A2 MB with unison
    The Burl is a great dac, its so engaging and fun to listen to, its a toe taper. It reminds me of the early dacs I had that Stan Warren built very "organic" with that distortion that sounds good. The Burls bass is lacking not quantity but quality compared to the Gungnir. Everything else, tonality, attack, detail is very close. The Gunginr to me is cleaner, less digital when compared head to head. The Burl has this density with each note that is amazing and so so engaging. One is not better then the other just different ways of presenting the music. I will be staying with the Gungnir it has less digititis for me and it has better, more defined and clearer bass. Really glad I got to hear this one

    The more I listen to the Burl the more I love it,, this is a tough one as both the Gungnir and the Burl are very good. The Burl has a blistering attack on each note that is amazing, decay is also very good, it presents a shimmering picture, so seductive. I think I need to listen more.
    Anyone know if there's a best sonic input for the Burl?

    The best input is the one with the greatest peace of mind, or convenience.
    Try them all, half the fun and the other being pain.
    :punk: Let your ears decide.

    This is a great dac, I decided to stay with the Gungnir and could easily live with the Burl. I like both equally. I was really taking by the attack and density of the Burl and then after listening for a few days the romance wore off and they both sounded very good. well worth giving a listen to.
    The Burl is like a vibrant oil painting
    The Gungir is a slightly muted colors with equal detail
