I can say from experience that Meier Audio offers some of the best value headphone amplifiers and DACs in the game. Think of them as something akin to a European version of Schiit. Enclosures are modest and marketing costs minimal. The attraction of these amps lies in their sound and design, not in frivolities. The attraction of the company lies in the integrity and product support offered by its founder, Jan Meier. When Jan announces a new product (which isn't all that often) I'm pretty quick to check it out. When Jan announces a product that is a "best-I-can-make DAC/headamp combo" it's an insta-headswivel. Meet the SOUL: At this stage a few functional prototypes are up and running and can be auditioned at CanJam Berlin in November 2017. You can read all about it on the Meier Audio website, so there's little point in me doing a copy-and-paste job here. Can't wait to read your impressions!
