CONCLUSION
This DAC has many special qualities to it. It has a rare beauty of sound to it that so many others lack, it has a superb preamplifier built-in, and may be the instrument of choice for those people who value these qualities above all others. It does, like all hi-fi products, have areas of lesser strengths, principally in the bass and timing departments, as well as a less-than-holographic sound stage, and in these areas, the most discerning punters may be disappointed. I think the decision to buy will come down to individual preferences, but for its ability to beguile and seduce tonally, and in particular its ability to capture the human voice, it is well worth an audition.



A new technology DAC with great flexibility and impressive sound. A top performer, if with minor weaknesses.

FOR
