 "The Concert Fidelity DAC-040 tube digital to analog converter is in constant use in my studio now. The unit arrived fully broken in and from the first note, I could hear my digital playback open up, bloom and sound so glorious that I spent the afternoon just listening to all of my favorite old compact discs in my studio instead of getting any work done. I highly recommend the Concert Fidelity DAC-040 to anyone who wants to radically improve their digital playback!"
