Review: Audio Note DAC One 1.x DA converter

Category: Digital

Listen tastes: Opera to Rock

Most important aspect of the music is the imaging and a

warm tone.

This dac has been in my system for 1 month of continuous operation. I found its strength to be a warm and wide soundstage.

It weakness was some audible distortion for about a weeks time.

It help improve badly recorded CD's (although they still sound a bit 2 dimensional) and re-creates good depth into the soundstage on well recorded CD's.
