A clean stream.
I always kinda cringe when an audio reviewer calls the thing they’re reviewing a DUT (Device Under Test). First off, it sounds horrible and secondly reviewing hifi gear is not a test.

Power, precision, control. A Parasound stack.
The Meitner MA3 Integrated D/A Converter also houses a Roon Ready network player and volume control making it a plug & play streaming Preamp/DAC solution.
The DA2 V2 Reference Stereo DAC is EMM Labs’ flagship DAC. When the opportunity arose for me to hang onto the review sample from the BIG system for closer inspection, I took it (not literally, mind you).

The Dynaudio Focus 50 Active Wireless Speakers have everything you need to play music packed inside—just add music.
When the BIG system left, they left behind a smaller Credo: meet the EV 1202 Ref. in the Barn-appropriate custom Rough Cut finish. Yum.

Imagine an interview with a mountain climber who just scaled their highest peak. “What was it like?” the reporter asks. “Really big!”
I’m a fan of SSDs in small form factor music servers, especially when they look like someone paid attention to industrial design. The new Innuos ZENmini S checks all boxes.
The new ELAC Debut ConneX powered speakers, one is active and one passive, are more than powered speakers as they also house a DAC and phono/line input. Just add source(s).
Michael Kraske, Credo’s CEO/Director, provides a complete setup service for the Credo Cinema LTM speakers, a process that includes measurements and listening. Here’s what he found in-Barn.
That’s right—I pick THE Best HiFi.
