"There's near faultless extension at frequency extremes. Bass is beautifully extended but never in any danger of exaggeration or overhang, while treble is sweet and open", "That this DAC clerly offers some of the most detailed - and at the same time most musically bewitching - sounds I've heard from any digital source. It as, as it should be, largely immune to the differences between sources and get the best from CD, streamed audio and local computer playback with the greatest of confidence. It simple revels in the kind of tricky multi-layered sound that can so often trip up modern audio electronics". "With excellent sonics across a wide range of sources, fine build, superlative ease of use and a vast feature count, it's very difficult not to rave about the new Audiolab M-DAC. It's a landmark product, just like John Westlakes's original DacMagic was all those years ago. If you're looking for a digital to analogue convertor at or anywhere near this price, you surely must here this".
