Hot: Ability to detach the computer source from the system is an extremely liberating experience. Digital output extends wireless capability to other standard DACs.
Cold: Maximum sample rate is 16-bit/48.1kHz, no digital inputs, unable to partner DAC with existing CD players/transports. Decent enough sound, but hardly outstanding.
Encore: The DAC 1 is not just about sonic performance. Having the ability to send music to the system wherever the computer is (within range of the transmitter), is absolutely fantastic.
