Those who have bought into the high-rez file craze and the more money=better sound reasoning may miss out on what, for me, represents the best buy of my past 30 years in audio. Believe me, I am still feeling very puzzled about this conclusion.
Just ordered another one and relegated my MephistoX transport and EnkianthusX DAC to their respective boxes. The IDo is a clear signal that, today, great sound is available for hundreds, not thousands of dollars.
