    Conclusion

    Well... That was a surprise! A puristic Roon endpoint for 1200 euros with this reproduction quality? We didn't see it coming. Especially via i2s the reproduction is unprecedented good. Super pure, uncolored, stable and with a stereo image where many competitors do not come close. Disadvantage is that you have to sacrifice the usb coupler. In our case not convenient, but there is to work around it. No doubt Alpha Approved. Perhaps this year's best product already. If we had that award...
