  • 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.

    Smart and Handy
    SABRE32/ESS9038Q2M DAC, Xmos USB Input. They are the most advanced digital processors money can buy. DSD512 and 32/786khz, easy!

    Powerful and Quite
    Class-A and 3Wpc. Two levels of power control, each with 100 volume steps. 110db IEM, no worries. 70db planner magnetic, no sweat!

    Playmate Your Way
    Opamp rolling to tune its sound. With four detachable DIP sockets, Playmate 2 is ready when you are.

    Small and For All
    You can admire Playmate 2 all day or just let it play. With such a small footprint, it is perfect anywhere.

    Fun and Games
    HD mic input for PC gaming, optical input for gaming consoles, optional remote preamp for movie nights. Sounds good whatever you do.

    USB-C Back to Back
    With competitors staying in the USB-B age, Playmate 2 warps into the USB-C future. No more dongles, no more converters. Phones, tablets, Windows or Mac, Plug-n-play!

    Powers Inequality
