Reference Seven

Posted

Pros: Outstanding sound quality, high value considering the components used, solid construction

Cons: May be too large for some people, requires a 30-60 minute warmup to sound its best, DIY-look compared to some other products

Not mass market gear, but a dream for R2R multibit sound enthusiasts.

Pros: Excellent sound, plenty of input options, price is reasonable when you consider the sound quality

Cons: not many... the uit is BIG and heavy, Audio GD website not the greatest, and shipping this thing is no fun

See above for my complete review, you might have to scroll down a little.

 

In summary this is a fantastic DAC. Worthy of all the praise it has received, I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a high end DAC with a somewhat down to earth price.

Pros: The Sound- Musical -Large soundstage- 3D Like-

Cons: If anything The Size Its Huge & Heavy dont want to move it around too much

There are many reviews on this. All I have to add Is you would be hard pressed to obtain simmilar quality for the price.
