Damian, Perth Classical music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb SQ from super-efficient HQ D-Class amplification and 32-bit DAC.

Has good support as a network media player and external DAC.
Bad points:
Not really a bad point, but the remote, with its multi-room support, can require some getting used to, before one can become totally proficient in using it.
