Blows away all stand alone CD players I have owned, although my Sony ES Deck was very nice. Way better than my Entec Number Cruncher and Theta DS Pro. Nothing wrong here. Sweet balanced sound adds no color. Very neutral. Sweet smooth highs. Does what it is supposed to. Nice array of switchable inputs, both coax and optical for each. Selectable filters, but linear seems most natural to me. Will also pass through signals in both coax and toslink. NOTE: The USB input sounds terrible. It is not asynchronous, and is limited to 16 bit 44.1 kHz. If you use it with a computer get a standalone asynchronous usb to PCM converter such as MF V-link.

Fantastic DAC and headphone amplifier. Upsampeling works great for this price. Big dis-advantage de blue leds on de front are from a poor quality and have to be replaced.
