Pros: sound quality, build quality, style
Cons: price, dac selection
I have had this unit now for a week and am fully impressed. Right out of the box and without any burn-in it delivers breathtaking tone to instruments and vocals alike. Solid power and strong bass drive even with hard to drive headphones. Switching to some efficient T5p's still leaves the volume pot at 12:00 with a strong performance. Clearly attention to detail was paid in getting the 1/8 and 1/4 ports matched in volume. My only complaints being at this price point it would have been nice to have a sabre dac inside instead of a ti compromises slightly the crispness of the signal when used as a dac and it not being able to output as a dac to the rca outputs at the same time as the headphones. Would have been nice to have a tube pre-amped volume controlled rca out mode.
