Baetis is controversial. The major audio mags love them. However there's been some online postings of teardowns and comments presenting the case that they're way overpriced for what you get. Search online. Seems to be the truth for some of their parts/materials. There's also an element (that even shows up on Agon sometimes) that seems to have a personal axe to gring against them. Baetis likes to say some of their technology is proprietary or confidential (?), this may or may not be true. Having built a few high-end and expensive servers, as well as a bunch of regular desktops in the past 20+ years, I tend to agree with a lot of the naysayers. There are other well-known options, companies with very good reputations, such as Small Green Computer. It's also possible to put together a top quality server using some of the better audio-grade components available online that would at least equal and possibly beat Baetis sound quality, and for less money.
