CONCLUSION

It took a while for the penny to drop, and for me to ‘get’ where this player is coming from. It is extremely accomplished, it adds very little to the mix, almost to the point of being stark. It doesn’t really join in the party, but presents things as they are.
    Its most appreciative home is likely to be a recording studio, as its point of view is highly analytical and unvarnished. It has been designed from the ground upwards in a wheel-reinventing way. There will always be those people who appreciate a more “referential” type of sound, and I think for those people, this player will find a happy home.

FOR
- superb solidity
- intense detail
- spcially revealing

AGAINST
- highly analytical


Ability to separate textures
Excellent USB DAC facility
