F-117 customers impressions...Here are few customer's comments regarding the F-117...
Been listening to my rig with F-117 in place for the past week.
In a word: Wow!
Right out of the box, this equals or betters my PHD in terms transparency and low noise floor (The PHD’s strengths) but absolutely wipes the floor with it in terms of dynamic range, slam and presence.
I’ve been super busy this week with work projects, so I’ve only been able to log about 3 - 4 hours listening time total. From my experience the unit really hits its stride after about 20 minutes of playing time.
Playing through my favorite album sides generates one goosebump moment after another. When going back to the PHD, everything sounds, by comparison, reserved, polite and compressed.
This little guy has to be one of the best deals in audio.
I love it when I can down-size and improve my sound at the same time.
Also, I’m super impressed with the build quality, functionality, and well thought out physical design. An absolute world class, and world class sounding piece of gear.
Great job. I couldn’t be happier with it.
This one from Suk...
Just got it and plumbed it into my system (Benz Micro L04 + SMEV + TNT III into Benchmark HDR into Krell KSA300S into Dunlavy SC-V).
Just like the reviews said: incredible soundstage and the bass is wonderfully deep and tight, a great match for the speakers.
